You don't love Oil and Gas. You love making money. Tons of money. With very little training and Certification. If you could make $200,000 a year mining marshmallows, you'd mine marshmallows. #abpoli #cdnpoli
If you took this as some "anti-oilfield worker" sentiment then you are lacking a grasp of understanding. I am very pro-worker. I absolutely empathize with those struggling right now and I'm happy to contribute to any social costs to help them through.
My beef is with the Corporations that bridle the working people and their families with economic slavery; bringing them on to make unimaginable profits off of them and spitting them out at the first sign of instability.
I also take great issue with the trickle down economic policies which enable this behavior. Governments should be ashamed of the way they pander to Corporations and allow their own electorate to be treated.
My biggest beef though is with theecono-fascist movements like "I ❤ Canadian Oil & Gas" which is helping to handcuff so many right now.
Man, I just want people to have enough to eat and raise their families. It'e amazing that people don't see that.
Honestly, I should've worded my original tweet like this:

"You don't love Canadian Oil and Gas. You love making a living. A good living. With limited transferable training and Certification. If you could make a sizable income mining marshmallows, you'd mine marshmallows."
TBH, I thought this is how it would've been interpreted. I'm likely the last person to criticize working people.
And, here's something to chew on that is 100% accurate.

Jason Kenney scares the s--t out of me. But not really because of the impacts he'll have on mine and my family's lives.
I'm far more concerned about the negative impact he'll have on all of those O&G workers replying to me as if I'm the enemy.

Kenney's Alberta's Worst Nightmare IMO. I hope I'm dead wrong! #ableg #abpoli #cdnpoli
