The Trudeau train wreck (2)

About ten months ago I wrote about Trudeau's train wreck. That time it was about a CN rail train carrying crude oil that went off the rails near the Saskatchewan-Mantiboa border. Now, of course, days after the event, the Globe and Mail has published a Reuters report which says that "Saskatchewan’s public-safety agency says crews … Continue reading The Trudeau train wreck (2)

A good step in the right direction

I've been banging on about nuclear energy from some months now, starting in June and going on over several posts leading into the fall. I'm sure my views had nothing to do with it, but I am very pleased to see that Doug Ford (Ontario), Blaine Higgs (New Brunswick) and Scott Moe (Saskatchewan) have all … Continue reading A good step in the right direction

Canadian pipelines vs. Chinese coal

Is this the future?

What will people do when their electric cars ~ too often "fuelled" by coal-fired electrical generating plants ~ need an urgent re-charge? Apparently, they will call for a diesel generator towed by a gas-powered van to come to the rescue. China is, some sources report, leading the world in electric car production, but most of … Continue reading Is this the future?

Just do it

A couple of days ago I suggested that "If the Trudeau regime has half the brains the gods gave to green peppers they will cede, at a below-market value price, 51% of the Trans Mountain Pipeline to a consortium of Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan First Nations and then use every legal means available to push that … Continue reading Just do it

Doing things right

There is a very interesting article in the Globe and Mail about a proposed new housing development in Vancouver. The development is interesting on a number of levels, because: "Planners are looking at providing parking for only 10 per cent of the apartments, far below the usual minimum ... [because] ... reducing the amount of … Continue reading Doing things right
