RE: Kenney wants Keystone XL pipeline cash back from US

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is proving how unreliable Canadians can be in front of their largest trading partner and ally.

His wish to sue the Biden administration in Washington because they pulled out of the Keystone XL pipeline is childish and a move worthy of the likes of former President Donald Trump. One has to admire a President ready to fulfill campaign promises as soon as he takes office and he will prove to Washington’s enemies that he is a man to fear.

It’s time for Alberta to grow up and stop dictating energy and environmental policy in this country.

    Ontario and Quebec have been dictating energy and environmental policies forever, Albertans (and Saskatchewanians) are nothing more than slave labourers in a distant colony working for the arrogant elitists in Central Canada.
    This particular move by Biden will stop ANY! cross border projects for the foreseeable future. Who in their right mind would invest billions of dollars in a project and have it approved by one administration only to have it cancelled by the next????

    Trudeau and Biden cannot be trusted. Both have cancelled existing contracts and existing legislation, just to spite a previous leader. Neither makes common sense decisions and neither give a damn about their countrymen / people. Both are controlled by others and the Communist Chinese evidently have a lot of influence. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6ee14f18293e19e9ce4a54f6bb2345744ab03e38bdf3bfdccda6c7affae637c9.jpg

    Barrie, Ontario He does know the oil/gasoline he fills the gas tank with was probably Saudi Arabian crude refined in Eastern Canada. Talk about calling the kettle black.

    Easter Canada doesn’t want Alberta crude, just the revenue from Albertans oil & gas industry.

RE: MAKICHUK: Seeking economic diversity when it’s all going to hell

I am a new subscriber to Western Standard and I want to say it’s refreshing to read your no-nonsense articles.

In fact, I enjoy reading all the columnists and it’s good to see some “voices of reason” within such a plethora of left-wing loonies.

LETTER: Alberta government needs to step up and fight for province

Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots.

RE: MAKICHUK: Thoughts, dreams and hopes for an independent West

I am a supporter of the Western Standard. I read your piece on an independent West, and I agree with you for sure.

A couple of points; Why hasn’t any recent premier of Alberta stood up for our province against Ottawa. I thought that finally, we had a champion in Jason Kenney, but he turned out to be another of Trudeau’s useful idiots. 

He spoke many times before his election and a few times after, of the federal government staging “yet another attack on Alberta and our energy sector.”

I wonder how many times do you need to be attacked before you realize that you are at war?

It seems that no one, not Jason Kenney, not even Ralph Klein or Peter Lougheed had an undertaking of the constitution.

If they did, they would understand each of the provinces are already independent states within a confederation of independent states.

We already have control of our future. We just refuse to use that control. We ARE independent, we simply need to exercise our independence. 

Our government needs to step up and truly represent Albertans and protect our future, our rights, and our prosperity.

Maybe dust off that copy of the constitution, if we still have one.

LETTER: Alberta needs a leader with a spine to stand up to Ottawa

“We talk and talk and talk and complain and grumble and nothing moves the needle.”

RE: MAKICHUK: Thoughts, dreams and hopes for an independent West

Good Morning Mr. Makichuk:

I totally agree with your column on leaving with the exception of needing a leader.  We talk and talk and talk and complain and grumble and nothing moves the needle. 

We complain about how Ottawa is screwing us and yet no one steps forward to lead with a simple, forceful message that everyone can understand and relate to.  We need a leader with spine, testicular fortitude, a vision and no fear or apology to the woke political left. 

We need to stop this incessant whining because that’s how the rest of Canada now sees us — as a whiner.  We need to shut up and take action.  I think if the everyday Joe knew where to start or what to do they would but they need a leader and concerted action. 

Also, if we could form one large block with Saskatchewan this would give us a bit more of an edge but we need someone to say “okay we’re going this way” and point the way.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.

**your signature**



The Western Standard will never accept government bailout money. By becoming a Western Standard member, you are supporting government bailout-free and proudly western media that is on your side. With your support, we can give Westerners a voice that doesn\'t need taxpayers money.
