According to Blacklock’s Reporter, Canada’s fanatical Federal Environment minister, Steven Guilbeault, states he plans to end the use of fossil fuels in Canada within two years.

Guilbeault apparently made that claim in an interview with the left-wing, taxpayer-funded, publication, The Narwhale.
The True North provides the details:
Liberal environment minister Steven Guilbeault said in a recent interview that he hopes to phase out fossil fuels within two years.
According to Blacklock’s Reporter, Guilbeault made the comments to the left-wing outlet The Narwhal, which receives taxpayer funds from the federal government.
“My timeline is two years,” Guilbeault said. “So in the next two years, more stringent methane regulations, zero-emission vehicle standards, net-zero grid by 2035, cap on oil and gas and obviously phasing out fossil fuels – all of these things must be in place in the coming eighteen months.”
“I mean, maybe 2024, but that’s the type of time frame we have to work with and it’s going to be tough because on the one hand some people are going to criticize us for not giving them enough time to be consulted, but the state of climate change is such that we need to learn to do things faster and that’s certainly true of us as a government,” Guilbeault added.
Mr Guilbeault, please lead by example
Well, I would invite Guilbeault to lead by example and show us how it’s going to be done. First, we had -30 degree Celsius weather in Western Canada recently, and our finance minister could start by:
- Turning off his natural gas furnace;
- Only having him and his staff fly first class on solar-powered jets (READ: One Climate Flight At $10,843);
- Turning off all electricity not provided by green energy. Note: 40.9% of Ontario’s energy comes from green sources (Hydro, wind, solar, and biomass). So, as a compromise, Guilbeault should shut off his electricity 59% of the time.
- Not buying food shipped to stores by diesel-engined semis or harvested by gas-operated machinery; and
- Not driving on asphalt-covered roads in his chauffeured-driven car (READ: Guilbeault put 21,000 km on government vehicle despite opposition to cars).
I am sure there are hundreds of other things that require oil and gas that I could add to this list, but he could show us how it’s done by starting with these five items.
