To address the spate of let's call it "interesting" analysis about gas prices in BC from @MarcLeeCCPA a quick thread about the refined fuel situation on the coast and #transmountain's effects on gas prices @keithbaldrey @robynallan #bcpoli #vanpoli @sjmuir @nbennett_biv 1/
As we all know BC uses about 192,000 barrels per day of refined fuel with Prkland providing about 33% of our gas and 30% of the jet fuel. The #Transmountain supplies most of the remaining refined fuel but it cannot supply everything we need #bcpoli #vanpoli
As a consequence we import about 30,000 bpd from the Americans. This number is from the Canadian Fuels Association and is corroborated by the US EIA. According to the EIA #bpoli #vanpoli 3/

Happy #IWD, folks. Today, @jkenney & @Alberta_UCP will to try to tell you they love women, they support women, they defend women. Let’s revisit the short 2 yr history of the party and their action on women’s issues - because we all know that actions speak louder than words #ableg
One: @JasonNixonAB, UCP House Leader fired a woman for speaking up about sexual harassment. Nixon was her boss and he fired her for speaking out. #MeToo
Two: Every single member of the @Alberta_UCP caucus walked out on a historical bill to protect women while they access healthcare. They walked out not once, not twice, not five times, BUT TWELVE TIMES while MLAs debated legislation.

A thread about common myths about the #transmountain:

heavy crude is a fungible commodity and blocking #TMX will do nothing to affect oil demand all it will do is move demand to suppliers with lower environmental standards and higher per barrel GHG emissions #bcpoli #cdnpoli 1/
When activists say it is about protecting the Southern Resident Killer Whales, remember the #NEB was not allowed to consider how the #TMX reduces threats to the SRKWs from the American side of the border achemistinlangley.net/2018/09/01/on-… #bcpoli #transmountain 2/
What does getting the number of tankers in US waters down mean to the SRKWs? It might improve access to feeding grounds by restoring Rosario Strait to their habitat. Currently they avoid that area, likely due to US tankers achemistinlangley.net/2018/09/27/mor… #bcpoli #transmountain 3/

Yesterdays thread about the latest documents filed in the #TransMountain “reconsideration” hearing highlighted some of Coldwater First Nation’s concerns, and an outright lie by Alberta.

We’ll continue by looking at more of what Alberta has written. #TMX
If the lies and inaccuracies in Alberta’s submission were salmon, you could walk across a river on them…

E.g. when they say “Canada has, among other things, implemented the Oceans Protection Plan and the Whales Initiative.”

Implemented? As in past tense? As in already done?
Turns out Trudeau stated publicly that without Trans Mountain, “We won’t get the Oceans Protection Plan” at all.

How can something be “implemented” if it’s contingent on approval of the pipeline? 🙄

Not to mention that it's a giant oil industry subsidy. nationalobserver.com/2018/11/23/ana…

#Ottawa has not failed #Alberta!!

Watch this video from Oct 15th explaining why #ABoil prices were on the decline.

#BNN US refineries, which have been offline during maintenance work, may help explain the recent decline in Canadian #Oil prices

#CtvNews🎥@JustinTrudeau "In order for a pipeline to come online this week, it would have to be started effectively, under the previous #CPC Gov, & we know that didnt happen, because they didnt have the right approach on pipelines"

#Abpoli #Ableg #Alberta #Cdnpoli #Aboil
Bill C69 or C48 did not delay these piplines. Failed environmental assessments & a lack of sincere #Indigenous consultations caused these delays.

#KeystoneXL (Court delays)
#TMX delayed (IC)
#EnergyEast cancelled
#NorthernGateway delayed (IC)

THREAD: The oil tanker maritime map tweets series has generated a lot of interest over the past year. By popular demand, here’s a thread with the Top 25 most retweeted tanker maps. @MarineTraffic @Resource_Works #cdnpoli
1. The winner, with 356 retweets. What made this one so popular? I’d like to know.
2. Second place is now sitting at 277 retweets. What is it that people find so fascinating? Maybe it’s the realization that there is actually not a lot to worry about here.

Today, @RachelNotley looked me straight in the eye and told me that I had more in common w/ @jkenney than I’d like to believe and that both his actions and those of pipeline opponents, such as myself, are only stalling action on climate change.
We have 12 years. 12 years before we lock in what can only be described as climate chaos for millions of people around the world.
I’m 25 years old. World leaders met for the very first time to talk about climate change the year that I was born. We now have HALF that time left to reverse the most harmful and irreparable effects of climate change. HALF.
