Canadians live in the second coldest country on Earth. We have to heat our homes and businesses for ten months each year. Life here is not possible without adequate heat.
Fortunately we were blessed with adequate reserves of natural gas,the best heat source we could ever have. Used sensibly and sustainably, our natural gas will provide Canadians with prosperity and comfort for many generations.
Natural gas can also provide power production, transportation and many other benefits for Canadians. Obviously this priceless resource should be nurtured and protected in every way possible so it can provide for the needs of Canadians for the long term.
One would have to be insane to desire to deplete (export) this essential,life-sustaining resource. Exporting our gas is like a drug addict selling his/her blood to finance more drug use. There can not be a good outcome.
The scale and intent of the current LNG and gas export proponents is to remove and redistribute Canada's entire natural gas reserves. What will we do then? Building sufficient power production and switching all of Canada over to electric heat would cost trillions of dollars,much more than we would make from the sale of our natural gas.
The untrue and distorted comments of our current governments and some other elected officials,concerning fossil fuel export, are disturbing to say the least. We do not need to sell our life blood. We need to change our governments and our voting system.
Our current governments are nothing but pawns of foreign governments and corporations and that is the driving force behind the sell-off and give-away of Canada's assets. We have the wrong governments with the wrong vision and the wrong economy.
Massive export of our priceless resources is unprofitable, unnecessary, horribly destructive and polluting in many ways and blatantly stupid. Thank you.
