The radical Mayor of Montreal Denis Coderre made some big headlines this week.
TransCanada made the announcement to cancel it’s proposed Energy East Pipeline project which shocked the nation.
15,000 people had high hopes to work on the high paying pipeline proposal.
Denis Coderre, and a few green activists celebrated the cancellation like they won the lottery, stabbing many people in the back.
Coderre strongly opposed the pipeline to go through Quebec even though the province receives the highest amount of money from Alberta, money labeled as equalization payments to the tone of $10 billion per year.
This money buys Quebec health care, low tuition fees and day care among many other services provided by the government.
Denis Coderre was also the man behind the approval to dump billion litres of human waste into the St. Lawrence River which is not very environmentally friendly.
Does it make him a hypocrite to oppose Energy East after dumping human sewage into a river?
It makes him a hypocrite, Albertans are trying to get out of the rut the NDP and Liberal government put them in during the 2015-2016 oilfield season, this is just putting salt in their wounds.
Denis Coderre should never be welcomed to come to Alberta.
