On Friday's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Lorne Gunter, senior political columnist for the Edmonton Sun, joined Ezra to discuss the ramifications of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's throne speech for Alberta and the energy sector.
After Ezra asked Lorne if the throne speech meant what he thought it did — namely, the closure of much of Canada's energy production — Lorne felt Ezra's opinion was accurate, and explained what he thinks the future holds:
I don't think you've over-estimated [the Liberals shutting down much of the energy sector]. I think that's what it's going to come to. I think what the Liberals are doing is hoping very much that the obstacles they've thrown up to oil and gas — in the tanker bank, the new regime for approving pipelines and oil sand projects and other energy-related initiatives.
All of that is going to continue to stymie development of the energy sector in Canada. So much so that they won't have to declare it closed, it will just close on its own.
