This week’s fire in Ft McMurray, tragic as it is, provides some real insight into the gulf that divides the productive and non-productive parts of Canadian society.
The productive part of Canada are the oil workers, farmers, construction workers and private sector who do all of the working and paying in this country. The unproductive part is the left – the public sector, SJWs, Climate Alarmists – supporters of Elizabeth May, Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau, who do all the spending, bitching and little of the work.
The euphoria of the schadenfreude the left exhibits over the loss of property and livelihoods of the people of Ft. McMurray, a place that represents everything about Canada they hate, is on full display. From former NDP candidate Tom Moffat, suggesting the disaster is “Karma” for the evil oilsands business on Twitter, to the deranged comments by Elizabeth May that the fire is a result of climate change – these leftist seem to see the Ft. McMurray fire as a win for their side.
While the productive part of society raises money for the victims, gets ready to rebuild and takes care of the housing and feeding of the evacuees, doing the things the left talk about – May, Moffat and rest of the left – which, for the past 20 years, has been almost entirely on oilsands related economic activity to fund their destructive pursuits – wallow in a sea of self righteous hubris with a “told you so” attitude that has no basis in fact or science
Ft. McMurray will rebuild – and as the reality of the world’s need for fossil fuels becomes clear – prosper – No thanks to left, or frankly our various government agencies who have proven to be next to useless.
Karma is a bitch – as the left will discover in time.
For those who think Ft. McMurray is Gaia’s way of punishing oilsands workers, here’s some science..
