Supreme Court Rules Woke Anti-Energy Bill Unconstitutional

 

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled the "Woke" anti-energy bill, C-69, unconstitutional because it encroaches on the jurisdiction of the provinces. Officially called the Impact Assessment Act that was enacted in 2019 by the Trudeau Liberals, it supposedly was to improve the environmental review of energy projects. It was to replace the National Energy Board with a new Canadian Energy Regulator and an altered federal environmental assessments process to include a broad range of impacts to be reviewed by a new "Impact Assessment Agency". In practice it was meant to stop any new natural resource projects by putting up more unrealistic roadblocks based on "Woke" ideology.

Expanded factors taken into consideration include traditional Indigenous knowledge, the attainment of climate goals and gender-based analysis to ensure that, in the words of then environment minister Catherine McKenna, “potential impacts on women, men or gender-diverse people" were minimized. These will not be the only factors that will come into play, since “Woke" ideology is open-ended and seeks "social justice" for any person or group that has been made to feel uncomfortable, or been disrespected or slighted in any way. This means that new energy projects can be prevented by anyone with an axe to grind.

In Alberta it is called "The No More Pipelines Bill" although it includes any energy project or infrastructure. It is part of the fanatical federal environment minister Steven Guilbeault's scheme to shut down the oil and gas industry. See more on his plans here - https://www.kingofwoke.ca/guilbeault.htm. It is reminiscent of the disastrous National Energy Program of Trudeau senior in the 1980s which devastated the oil and gas industry at that time. Meanwhile, Canadian coal exports go unabated despite being “dirty” energy.

Justin Trudeau, in his distorted view, said that the Conservative premiers of six provinces were playing games with national unity by opposing the bill. The only parts of the bill that were not considered illegal by the Court were for projects on federal land or federally funded. Not content with the Court's decision, the Liberals are planning on circumventing it by changing some of the wording in the bill.
