On November 16, 2021, Councillor Raj Dhaliwal’s motion to declare a state of emergency in Calgary, a declaration which has been a priority for mayoral newcomer Jyoti Gondek, was approved by city council.
Vancouver, Halifax, and Edmonton are among the other cities in a self-described state of climate emergency — whatever that means.
Calgary was built on oil and gas. And Jyoti was once a massive supporter of our clean and environmentally ethical energy sectors. But don’t take my word for it; we’ve included a clip of her heralding and praising Canadian energy sector which you can watch right here.
Whatever state of emergency she declares, people will still need oil and gas.
Beyond the economic and energy considerations, there is an altogether more troubling concern here, and that is the well-being of our children.
Environmentalists profess to want to safeguard the world for future generations. But in the process, they have created an environment so riddled with fear and hysteria that kids are too anxious to function in the world today.
The combined stress of parents who have lost their jobs because of cancelled pipelines, anti-oil lobbyists, as well as the constant messaging that the world is going to end is undoubtedly contributing to a mental health pandemic among our youth.
Alberta energy resources are good for Canada, good for the environment, and good for families.
There is no climate emergency, least of all in beautiful Alberta.
