Fraud: Trudeau Uses Photo Of Forest Fire Caused By Wind Turbine Construction Project To Sell His Carbon Tax Scam

From Spencer Fernando

Trudeau Climate Action Fraud

The fraud never ends with the Trudeau Liberals.

Justin Trudeau recently tweeted an article with the following photo, in an effort to fear-monger Canadians into supporting his hated carbon tax scam.

The photo is attempting to make some sort of link between supporting Trudeau’s carbon tax scam, and avoiding forest fires, which is an astoundingly absurd argument.

And it’s even more absurd, once you realize where the photo is from:

This photo is from the Parry Sound 33 fire.

Parry Sound 33 Fire

And it’s the same photo that was in the article Trudeau tweeted.

As David Jacobs pointed out on Twitter, the fire in that photo was caused by a construction project for a wind turbine:

The connection between the wind turbine construction project and the fire has been made in multiple sources:

A CBC report included quotes from workers saying “We heard on two-way radios that there was an Argo [an all-terrain vehicle] that broke down in the bush where the fire began,” one worker said. “During the week, as we proceeded through work, there were fires that started up from our machines … little fires,” he said. “But this one started and it was too big for [workers] to control. And it got out of hand and it turned into devastation.”

They don’t see it that way SMC. They live in The Land of Make Believe, (google Chuck Mangione who wrote and preformed the theme song for their fantasy land) and it operates as their alternate universe. Point of Fact they don’t see what they say as propaganda They would call it Post-Modernist Deconstructionism where they deconstruct reality, facts, truth and then reconstruct it into what they want it to be and mean. They even call it “their truth” because it cannot pass any empirical scientific scrutiny. Which is not a requirement whilst living in The Land Of Make Believe.

I just received this comment about Justin Trudeau from a Canadian doctor who lives overseas.
I have added no comments.
Regards to all, Allan

The Irving, Desmarais, Bombardier & McCain (Morneau by marriage) families, along with SNC Lavalin, Quebec Inc. and whomever holds the premiership of Quebec, own the Liberal Party of Canada and always have. This is why Quebec has always been the most powerful and entitled of tails, wagging the complacent Canadian dog.

Trudeau would have us believe his judicial interference was all about protecting 9,000 supposed jobs? Like these contracts wouldn’t have, or couldn’t have, been awarded if no SNC Lavalin? No other Canadian engineering groups exists besides this corrupt entity that the Liberals keep rewarding with billions in subsidies and contracts? Construction workers wouldn’t be hired if not for SNC’s existence? Does he really think Canadians are that stupid?

And let’s dispel the “you have to bribe to get contracts in certain jurisdictions” argument for cutting SNC some slack. This may be true, but Libya is far from SNC Lavalin’s only malfeasance. Let’s not forget SNC was convicted in 2018 for over $100,000 plus of illegal contributions (bribes) to Federal Liberal Party members? And that SNC was deeply connected to the Porter scandal and the corruption associated with Montreal’s new general Hospital. Or that they are currently under RCMP investigation for corruption related to the recently rebuilt Champlain bridge in Montreal.

Never mind SNC expensing $2 million for Qadhafi’s son while entertaining in Canada for security details, concerts, hotels and prostitutes on Canadian soil. Btw, this went over really well with our CAF pilots tasked with bombing Libya. And how does SNC’s buying Qadhafi’s prostitutes fit with Mr. Feminist’s disparaging comments towards Alberta oil workers, suggesting that sex workers follow work camps?

This is simply Federal Liberal Quebec politics per usual and the Liberal party’s corrupt and seemingly eternal hold over Quebec and by extension Canada, being clearly illuminated for even the most truly blind partisan Liberal. As Cohen sang, “there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”

And, 90,000 energy job losses in Alberta don’t matter a damn to this government. No liberal votes out there folks!

So, let’s do a quick review of things Canadians shouldn’t forget about this charlatan;

• Let’s not forget the Trudeau Foundation? The mini-Clinton globalist drama teacher plays this money grab to the hilt with millions flowing in from Chinese billionaires after his “play for pay” dinners? Wouldn’t it be interesting to know what SNC Lavalin has contributed?

• Let’s not forget his slimy Minister of Finance, Bill Morneau screwing over small corporations with his passive income tax grab, while conveniently selling 680,000 Morneau-Shepell shares just days before changing Canada’s Pension laws.

• Let’s not forget Trudeau’s greasy pal Gerald Butts, the brains behind Trudeau, who bailed on McGinty before his government blew-up, who’s disastrous energy policy saddled Ontario with the highest sub-national debt in the world.

• Let’s not forget about his sleazy Agha Kahn vacation, breaking every ethical and conflict of interest rule in the book.

• His India dress-up fiasco with a convicted terrorist among his delegation and then trying to blame the PM of India, who didn’t bother to even greet him on what turned out to be a very expensive taxpayer family adventure tour.

• His very avoidable foreign affair disasters with our 2 biggest trading partners, America & China. Backstabbing Trump when promises were made at the G7. But more egregiously, admitting he knew about the Meng (Weiwei) arrest before it happened, making the bogus claim that this most political of actions (the Justice Minister makes the final call on extradition) was simply following the “rule of law” which Trump quickly made a mockery by wedging her into his trade dispute with China. This never should have happened, as even prominent senior Liberals admit.

• His welcome to Canada tweet and the silliness of our refugee policy suggesting those that cross the border between customs are “irregulars” and not “illegals”. George Orwell would be proud!

• His refusal to revoke the citizenship of returning ISIS fighters and the RCMP’s lack of ability to lay charges.

• His payment of $10.5 million to Omar Kadri in such a way as to thwart the American widow seeking to sue. Kadri’s mother & sister had already appeared on video denouncing Canada while declaring their support for ISIS

• His meeting with Boyle and his wife in the PM’s office, even though their journey and bogus story on being kidnapped was highly suspect. Boyle had been married to Kadri’s self-identified terrorist sympathizing sister and he is now in jail for beating and drugging his wife.

• His explanation to charges of groping a woman being “I do not feel that I acted inappropriately in any way. But I respect the fact that someone else might have experienced that differently” WTF…from our champion of feminism?

• His “the budget will balance itself” adding $100 million of additional national debt over his mandate and his own government releasing numbers that would indicate the budget won’t be balanced until 2041…some balancing? And we have what to show for these expenditures?

• His tweeting $50 million pledge to a B star American actor raising money for some third world woman & daughters group, just to get some attention on TV. Meanwhile, our veterans get stiffed.

• Peoplekind

• His cancelling Northern Gateway and Energy East pipelines leaving only one option, forcing him to spend $4.5 billion to buy Kinder Morgan only to see it too go up in regulatory flames. We could hear the champagne corks popping all the way from Texas. His Bill C-69 will only exacerbate regulatory approvals with downstream emissions & gender BS. So, its ok to ship 750,000 plus barrels per day to the east coast (Irvings) by tanker from nefarious regimes who have no environmental standards, but disallow tankers for the Northern Gateway pipeline. Let’s face the facts, if Quebec had oil, we would have pipelines running all over this country.

• His making outrageous promises to Indigenous Canadian’s who can only once again feel deceived by the white man with forked tongue. And look what happened with the “Truth & Reconciliation” farce.

• His apologizing for every conceivable historical grievance under the sun. Is there anything left?

• His legalizing marijuana long before the country was ready, suggesting it was to “protect the kids” REALLY? But no worries, the Indigenous peoples will have a field day supplying the market as they already do with cigarettes, and I say all the power to them. But, as a result of marijuana legislation, they passed Bill C-46 that allows police unprecedented powers in impaired driving apprehensions (even in the sanctity of our homes) which will cause considerable misery before being constitutionally struck down as it must be, if we can even remotely claim to not being a Police State.

• His promising a government of “transparency” slamming Harper’s ways, vowing to “never introduce an omnibus bill” and then did just that with the SNC Lavalin intended DPA (get out of jail free card) buried within an omnibus bill.

• His promising a more open and accessible PMO, suggesting the problem started with his father but soon ushering in Gerald Butts as his Principle Secretary causing many Liberals to grumble his office is manically controlled by Butts & Telford.

• His Chief of Staff Telford, saying she could “provide cover” for JWR to break the law, by arranging op-ed articles “saying what she was doing re SNC DPA was proper”…WTF, if that doesn’t get your attention, you should move to China or Russia. This from a government who the CBC already salivates over with their juicy extra funding and a government that is now subsidizing print journalism. No dots to connect here folks?

• His $300 plus million taxpayer gift to the inept Bombardier, because “aerospace was so vital to the Canadian economy” who promptly gave their board $50 million in bonuses (virtually all family members) and then ended up selling the C-Series to Airbus. Trudeau’s business acumen obviously didn’t include a clause for “job protection” since only taxpayers monies.

• And his carbon tax with its first phase kicking in April 1st, that will do nothing for the environment (Canada is 1.6% of world carbon output) while hurting those that need to use the most energy living outside Liberal dominated cities. Further, since neither of our two largest trading partners have such a tax, it further impairs our abilities to compete. And, anyone who thinks Trudeau will continue to rebate this tax after he he’s reelected, probably hasn’t read this far.

• His…ok, that’s enough, or will be here all night, suffice to say he’s a Conservative’s gift that keeps on giving…only, it’s not so funny anymore.
Trudeau was the anti-Harper choice for Canadians that I’ve admittedly never understood. But so what, he’s a Liberal, the “natural governing party of Canada” and it was inevitable that they would be back. He also seemed clueless and awfully naive with his prancing around the world playing Mr. Environment, (even flying the largest contingent of any nation to the Paris climate change gabfest) trying to insert gender, environment and workers’ rights into trade talks with countries like China who could give a rats ass. But still, it all seemed rather harmless, if not irritating that this decidedly not serious or grown-up man was prattling on this way, because Canada, in my opinion, hasn’t been a truly serious country in decades, other than regulating its citizens to death.

But, this is no longer a joke, he is actually becoming quite dangerous to Canada. Not only is he fanning the divisions of our country between East & West (have you read Alberta newspapers lately) while pitting Indigenous peoples against each other, and their governments, with countless energy related lawsuits. BUT, if he can interfere in the Justice system on behalf of a seriously corrupt entity for clearly partisan purposes, he can also lean on the Justice system to litigate other entities or people with whom he has a vendetta. Sound farfetched? Isn’t this banana republic stuff? Perhaps, but watch Vice-Admiral Mark Norman’s legal proceedings very closely. This was a witch hunt with Trudeau, Irving & Scott Brison (former President of the Treasury board) fingerprints all over it. This fine military officer, unique in Canadian history for delivering a warship on time and on budget, is made a scapegoat for cabinet leaks that exposed Irving interference and Trudeau complicity. Trudeau thought he would screw Norman by refusing him government legal defense funds generally available to military officers of the crown, only to have a Go Fund Me campaign pay for the services of the brilliant Marie Henein, who will leave no stone unturned. In fact, my bet is that this could well be the next shoe to drop on our dumbass PM’s head when the bogus “solicitor/client privilege” muzzle is finally removed from Jody Wilson Raybould. She will know all about the prosecution’s extremely dubious case.

How ironic that our halo-bound Liberal Prime Minister, proud feminist, defender of minority rights, inclusivity, advocate for transparency, apologist for centuries of wrongdoings to the Indigenous, was morally eviscerated by such a strong willed, meticulously prepared Indigenous woman and now has another very strong feminist opponent in Maria Henein perhaps finishing the job. Good riddance to that smug hypocrite. Professor Jordon Peterson’s brilliant evisceration of his character is must see video.

Sunny ways?…more like “shady ways” while proving a most unfortunate stooge for the “king makers” of Canada. Like “House of Cards” they forgot to consider that the wrong designate can create havoc to their entitled ways.

P.S. I purposely Bcc’d the few liberals still talking to me and would welcome how they might still consider voting for this imbecilic twit who still thinks invoking the scary Stephen Harper, as the satanic master of the Conservative party, isn’t growing a tad stale? In fact, vote Green, NDP, Max Bernier for all I care, but rewarding this smarmy, smug, entitled little prick, would truly be a sad day for this once great nation.

Unfortunately, the Conservative leader, Andrew Scheer, has shown himself to be rather meek up to now. His party has endorsed the Paris Climate Accord, one of the reasons prompting Maxime Bernier to walk out and form his own almost-libertarian party (People’s Party of Canada), which could do just enough damage to the Conservatives to ensure Justin Trudeau’s re-election.
Liberals will also gain from the expected weakness of the NDP, following this party’s unfortunate choice of a new leader wearing ostentatious religious “singhs”.

I was looking at my options for getting out of this crazy country when Ontario voted in a conservative government to deconstuct, the carbon tx grab/renubles skim and stop scaring and guilt- invoking CA Glob W propaganda and the egregious promotional sex ed.

But yes, Canadians need their Liberal fix, even though it is the most corrupt party in N.America. Their former PM lost an election because of scandal in doling out millions to “consultant” friends who never produced any deliverables, reversing decisions of the Federal business dev bank, etc. even let alone the mafia bagmen who were raising funds for them with offers to donors they couldn’t refuse. Trudeau Sr. was at least an intellectual who never passed on this legacy to his son.

Trudeau is a manifestation of the rot on the left. The “anatomically smooth Ken doll” personifies the quest for power with no other propose no meaning no substance. Just a job because he has daddies name. Carbon taxes are completely meaningless other than providing a funding stream for favored rent seekers. As has been said here before they are indulgences.

You commenters are giving Justin Trudeau too much credit IMHO. It’s arguable that he doesn’t have the intellectual depth to devise a policy about anything. All of the liberal policies about climate change/global warming and “how we can stop it” are the work of Gerry Butts, who was until recently the chief advisor in the PMO. He is also a close personal friend of JT, such that they “finish each others’ sentences”

Butts is a true believer in AGW; he was advisor to the former Liberal government of Ontario, who inherited an electrical generation system that was 60% nuclear and 24% hydro and tried to make it more “carbon-free” by promoting and subsidizing a load of wind power schemes that made electricity almost twice as expensive at the consumer level. They got voted out as a consequence and he turned up in Ottawa just in time to mastermind the feds doing the same sorts of things. Power generation is regulated by the provinces, so they had to get clever.

The carbon tax is really just the tip of the iceberg. Their big achievement will be passing a new law called Bill C-69, which introduces whole new levels of complexity and uncertainty in the Environmental Assessment process. This will open all kinds of doors to Big Green to raise objections to pipelines (and any other big project, but mostly interprovincial pipelines, which are the real target) on the basis of gender equity (really!), effects on marine life, and “downstream carbon emissions”. Meanwhile, the publicity for Bill C-69 says that it is intended to “introduce clarity and reduce uncertainty in the environmental assessment process”. Right.

Butts is gone from the PMO (forced to resign for senselessly trying to interfere in a prosecution), but I think we can rest assured that he’s still pulling the strings behind the scenes. Puppet master extraordinaire.

“…The carbon tax is really just the tip of the iceberg. Their big achievement will be passing a new law called Bill C-69, which introduces whole new levels of complexity and uncertainty in the Environmental Assessment process. This will open all kinds of doors to Big Green to raise objections to pipelines (and any other big project, but mostly interprovincial pipelines, which are the real target) on the basis of gender equity (really!)…”

https://www.healthline.com/health-news/why-women-live-longer#2

“…Worldwide, the average lifespan is about 71 years. Men, though, live an average of 68 years while women live an average of 73 years.

In the United States, the average lifespan is almost 79 years. Men live on average about 76 years while woman live an average of 81 years….”

When gender equality is mentioned with regards to fossil fuel infrastructure and climate change, I presume activists are talking about equalizing some perceived gap between men and women. If so, the linked article above from Healthline.com shows that women, both globally and in the U.S., have a longer lifespan than men do.

If fossil fuel infrastructure presumably favors men somehow in the minds of eco-activists, they will need to explain why women in the world have the longer life spans. Blending feminism, Marxism and other ideologies into environmental activism keeps getting more strange as time goes on.

John R. The problem is you imported so many lefty unemployed, on the pogie Atlantic Canadians to work in the oil patch that the province voted in the first socialist government ever. Actually it was the first non conservative government ever and you guys blew past the liberals at the halfway leveland voted in the totalitarians directly. You better get your province back first before you separate.

This is the problem with mass migration. 200,000 Canadians moved to Alberta from eastern Canada because their were no jobs in the east. And when they got to Alberta these 200,000 voted the same way they had back east, never taking the time to question why there were no jobs in the east. And of course the end result was a change of government and the 200,000 lost their jobs and returned to eastern Canada.

Liberalism is a birth defect. It’s not nice to make fun of people who are ill. I try very hard to treat them appropriately, but it’s not easy knowing their “convictions” about energy are destroying western societies. The Chinese have a superior approach. They virtue signal and provide jobs by building lots of wind mills but protect the grid by not connecting them into the system.

Liberalism is not a defect. The folks we call Liberals, aren’t liberals. Part of the problem is the leftists have corrupted and expanded the definition of liberalism, as they do with many terms, to the point where it becomes meaningless. It’s a marketing effort to make their corrupt ways sound noble and good.

Trudeau’s win in 2015 could have bearing upon the US election in 2020.
Going into that election, the “ABC” movement was the serious driver. “Anything But Conservatives”.
The Liberal Party of Canada had had two hopeless leaders, so Liberals, who hated the Conservatives for trying to re-introduce the concept of limited government, swung to the NDP (socialist in thought, word and deed).
This put the NDP in first place in the polls. Never happened before and the Liberals in third place (ditto).
The the Left in sensing a rare victory came out with the “Leap Manifesto” and the Liberals vote swung back to the Liberals.
Who won placing another Communist-admiring Trudeau in office.
Bloody disaster for Canada, but an instruction for the US.
The crazy Leftist Dems with AOC and Bernie are committing the equivalent of the “Leap Manifesto”.
Which is dividing and will continue to divide the deplorable Dems.
Divided, the Left in either country can lose.
The Liberals will likely lose in our general election in this October.
Conservatives winning will keep the NDP in a very poor third place.

The argument about fires is about fuel aridity, not the source of fires. Climate change is not creating sparks, it is claimed to be creating fuel. This is not hard to learn reading literally anything about the topic sourced to scientific information.

For this fire in particular:

“The severity with which forest fires are burning in areas that have peat or organic soil, which are typically wet, is concerning, said James Michael Waddington, a McMaster University professor who has studied wildfires for over a decade. “Several decades of fire suppression combined with unprecedented dry conditions fuelled by climate change means that peat is burning more often,” said Waddington, who added that the more severe the burning of the peat, the greater the resources and time required to fight the fire.

Related example (for western U.S.), topic is aridity not sources:

Abatzoglou 2016, “Impact of anthropogenic climate change on wildfire across western US forests”
“Anthropogenic climate change accounted for ∼55% of observed increases in fuel aridity from 1979 to 2015 across western US forests”
http://www.pnas.org/content/113/42/11770

Contesting the reasoning in such papers could be fair game, and could even be skepticism (though, given the incredibly partisan slant of commentary it should be pretty obvious to a reasonable reader that immense motivated biases are in play).

But it is pretty striking that so much commentary and vitriol proceeds from absolutely missing the point by miles and taking a false premise for granted, without question. Thinking that if you can show the start of a fire was not due to “climate” (whatever that would mean) that therefore advocacy for greenhouse gas mitigation is flatly false propaganda in the same category as the claims that routinely recirculate in criticism of mainstream science (say that NOAA fraudulently adjusted the temperature record – a literal example of anti-science propaganda.)

In other words, the post and commentary here are yet another example of the *opposite* of skepticism, not examples of it.

Of course.

Relevant starting points for discussion –

The U.S. remains the largest carbon polluter in history, and the only country to walk officially from any responsibility for greenhouse pollution, via non-participation in Paris
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/06/01/climate/us-biggest-carbon-polluter-in-history-will-it-walk-away-from-the-paris-climate-deal.html?_r=1

U.S. emissions are on the rise
https://www.eenews.net/stories/1060128403

I believe U.S. per capita emission rates remain > 2x that of China, >8x that of India

“China, in its submission, said that, compared to 2005 levels, it would seek to cut its carbon emissions by 60 to 65 percent per unit of GDP by 2030. India said it would reduce its emissions per unit of economic output by 33 to 35 percent below 2005 by 2030”

“After adopting its final National Electricity Plan (NEP) earlier in 2018, India remains on track to overachieving its “2˚C compatible” rated Paris Agreement NDC climate action targets. Estimates show India could achieve part of its NDC goals—a 40% non-fossil-based power capacity by 2030—more than a decade earlier than targeted. But a question still remains over the future of coal.”

Naturally the combined federal and Territorial governments have made zero effort to put these century old fires out…

The big joke accompanying this carbon tax is that Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has conceded that it would have to rise to $300/tonne before it could have any effect on Canadian emissions. This would be 6 times higher than it’s planned to reach in 2022, but any government that attempted to raise it anywhere close to $300 would be voted out of office in short order. So since the current tax proposals will be ineffectual, it’s more than obvious they’re just another tax grab, and this is likely to be confirmed once Canadians see how the revenue is being spent. If it’s found to be going to prop up various social programs, their suspicions will be confirmed because this is what has happened to varying degrees in Alberta and British Columbia after they introduced their own provincial carbon pricing.

A construction project causes a forest fire. It happens to be a wind turbine project, so obviously renewables cause forest fires. On this logic, if it had been a construction project for a coal mine, that would mean coal power causes forest fires.

In fact faulty power lines cause lots of bush or forest fires.
https://www.9news.com.au/national/parkerville-bushfire-class-action-theiss-landowner-liable/edaf95d9-9c29-482a-8d43-25e060cc26cdg .
https://www.standard.net.au/story/5302016/government-conducting-review-after-252-fires-in-two-years-due-to-power-issues/

So we can we conclude that electricity causes bushfires, regardless of whether it’s from renewables or coal. Still, Jo Nova manages to blame renewables for power line initiated fires:

” The Green Industry could have cared enough about the environment to speak out about reducing fire risks through managing fuel loads, and the fires would have been less damaging. Instead they were busy putting up windfarms to stop bushfires instead.”

http://joannenova.com.au/2019/01/man-made-us-bushfires-apparently-caused-by-pge-which-is-being-sued-for-30b-and-may-take-down-some-renewables-too/

Do we really need to wait for the Greens to speak out before the rest of us get serious about managing fuel loads and stopping bushfires? And building non-flammable power poles? And maintaining power lines? Regardless of the origin of the electricity they carry? And managing fire risks on constructive sites, regardless of the purpose of the construction? (Would you listen to the Greens anyway?)

Granted, power lines and construction projects start fires regardless of the kind of electric power generation which engenders the use or activity. But, low density generators (wind, solar, etc) require more powerlines, roads, construction, etc. that in turn create more fires. So, build one conventional plant, with one set of power lines, or one hundred windmills with one hundred lines? Which costs more to maintain? Which is more vulnerable to fire/flood/wind/earthquake/… ?
