The DIE (Diversity, Inclusion and Equity) crowd is now showing how ineffective it truly is, as those members of the Liberal party, and its ilk, try to perform tasks that just a few short years were, second hand for the talented and politically worthy. And I am speaking about the position of a real Deputy Minister of Canada as opposed to one we now have, chosen and brainwashed by a collective of global corporations intending to implode a North American economy and further the losses to businesses that happened in the two years Canada was locked down.
Chrystia Alexandra Freeland the WEF whiz kid and test tube clone, the war provocateur of a Young Global Leadership attempted to Muppet her way through the French language as she spoke on the “Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland makes an announcement in Montreal” – April 11, 2022
How this woman can drone on for 36 minutes and not really say anything.
A protest from a young media person, was quickly ushered out by a couple of butch ladies in navy suits. But alas god was tired as well of her pretentious virtue signaling voice, and the deafening sound on the video of a CN train drowning out her fumbling through a ridiculous accent. No wonder the real French hate the sound of Canadian French. But, Freeland was appealing to the Quebec French who are the favored province of the Trudeau Liberal government.
She begins strategically linking ‘child’ care with clean energy. The tactics of a propagandist. You are being sold something!
“Budgetary measures on the Environment:
Quebec has been a pioneer and a vanguard for child care services for over twenty years. a few weeks ago, we did sign an agreement with Ontario for the training and education of child care and more child care. So more families throughout the country will have access to affordable child care. But that is nothing new here in Quebec. In fact, Quebec has been a pioneer in the vanguard of affordable child care for more than 20 years; and as the pioneers, Quebec now has the opportunity to position itself as one of the world leaders in the area of clean technology. Clean energy, of course, is one of the most important transformations of world economies and for the industrial processes. We have everything we need here in Canada to succeed and to transit to a a clean economy. Our last budget proposes new funding to improve the Canadian economy, which will allow us to attract millions of dollars in private capital which we… [*Loud CN Train Horn*]…need — which will allow us to attract millions and millions of new private capital in order to transform our economy on a larger scale. $3.8 Billion for Canada’s strategy on critical minerals. We will develop a subsection tore in Canada. And I’m also very, very pleased and very proud to be here today to talk to you about our plans to reduce the load on our transportation systems. With $3.7 Billion, we will allow for more efficient and less costly recharging of these electric vehicles. [We hope] that industry will also move towards electric truck transports between now and 2040, and we propose investing $200 Billion to create a network of charging stations for EV that Canadians can depend on regardless of where they live. The hard facts are in a few years Canadians will be able to drive their electric cars built in Ontario and electric buses and trucks built in Quebec. With steel, aluminum, and critical minerals from throughout Canada. It can either [indiscernible] or Winsor for the processing plants and the refineries. We will have an all Canadian car very, very soon. The transition to a green economy is an economic necessity, but its also an existential challenge. This means cleaner air and a much more prosperous future. Solid jobs with good-paying jobs for Canadians as of today. I’ll give the floor to one of the individuals, one of the persons that’s really a leader of this transition, Yves Tremblay, and I am delighted to be here today, delighted to be here today, with him. The key themes of our budget were innovation, green economy, and economic growth. And Mr. Tremblay is one of the individuals here who will absolutely demonstrate in what he has done and what he does that is quite possible for Canada to be a world leader and is transitioning to a green economy and innovation. Thank you very much…”
What Chrystia Freeland does not speak about, is the real gist of how impossible, these, wasted measures and large sums of taxpayers money are — we are Canadians? And we spend some 7months of the year here in western Canada, in winter. Deep snows and frigid temperatures play hell with the existing gasoline and diesel engine vehicles we now possess. They as refined and assured transport technologies, but are prone to break down and are hard to keep warm enough to travel the prairies and western Canadian roads and heat is a life saving necessity. They use more fuel because of this, even though their efficiencies have risen over the decades of their invention and use.
I-95 Ice Storm Overnight Traffic Jam – Imagine you were Stuck in an EV
Electric vehicles: EV’s?
How is one to manage in the winter to electrically heat the vehicle as well as use that energy to propel the vehicle forward, more energy is needed to perform that task than with gasoline or diesel engines as the by product of combustion engines is, heat.
Electricity provides no heat waste, except in the mass manufacture of its production. There is no heat generated in electric engines, that heat must be gained by use of the battery power to create new heat. And a lot heat is necessary in a deep frigid Canadian winter.
Anyone who knows about electric will realize that charging takes considerably more time to refuel than a stop at a gas station for five or ten minutes for a refill for a Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). The average electric car take eight hours recharge from empty to full with a 7kW charging point. And if, most electric cars are topped up during a day — meaning constant stops keeping the charge as high as possible. With a full charge, a maximum charge performed at night when at home in a garage. And that is an expensive and time consuming process as well as it requires a three phase power supply. The homeowner purchasing a electric car must also put in a three phase electrical system in their garage.
“Home charging points typically have a power rating of 3.7kW or 7kW (22kW charge points require three phase power, which is very rare and expensive to install).”
Electric cars might fair well in the cities of Canada, for short drives to work or home or the mall or grocery store, but for western Canadians, these measures are impossible as electric will never produce the power required for heavy hauling and long distance travel. Small town to city for greater consumer needs. People simple do not have the time to wait for a full charge which at charging stations can require a minimum of two hours from empty to full, and what about the wait, and charging line ups for limited spaces for high traffic areas. Summer charging as people go on holidays could lead to eight or ten hours waits as has been recently seen as many charging station have long line ups. They require greater space than a modern gas station. They require parking lots filled with charging stations that can suit greater numbers of travelers.
How will apartment dwellers and renters be able to apply to this new technology, were will they gain over-night charges, who will foot the bill for these massive infrastructure refits? And besides all that. Where will all the new electricity and massive amounts of new power come from in an ailing electrical system that is having trouble keeping up with the common needs at present; further straining older infrastructure. The electrical system at present is fraught with difficulties keeping up with demands and still increasing supply and range of supply. The electrical system is already burdened.
“EV Recharge Hell for Climate Activist Heidi Harmon”
Electrical recharging is impeded by cold weather and takes a considerably more time for recharging add that to the fact of an aging electrical grid infrastructure.
A federal government $3.8 billion followed with a further $200 billion to refit by 2040 a new system does not aid a ailing economy now.
Something must be done quickly and in an emergency to stop the escalating of world war and the death spiral that western economies are heading too at the present.
With so many charging their vehicles at night, energy costs and rationing would limit electric car potential again, and increase the cost as rising cost during energy demand would trouble those households that use most of their electrical energy at night i.e. cooking, washing laundry, computer and television and tech device use by all family matter. Electricity used to light homes
“[…] [We hope] that industry will also move towards electric truck transports[…]”
Chrystia Freeland hopes? That’s a big statement coming from Freeland. Hope? With so much at stake, to hope the industry would change, when decades of industry has made efficient, what has shown to make it profit. Taxi services that have built ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) repair and cost and fuel efficiency into its business model, delivery trucks and service vehicles that have establish their own ICE infrastructures that have been made efficient over the decades of their existence. ICE repair shops and chains that have built their businesses on established norms of the ICE.
Companies now will have to create charging hubs, parking lots filled with charging stations depending on their needs and would have to have these at strategic locations depending on the market and local of their business. Freeland has failed to research the ramifications of such an endeavor as an electric energy grid for just cars.
She might suggest a wind mill and solar panels in windy locations to make efficient her ridiculous Liberal government’s plans for the future of transportation in Canada
The American government is subsidizing electric vehicles which cost the U.S. tax payer. The Canadian government is sponsoring electric at the cost to the taxpayer as well. The rising carbon taxes are only window dressing to hide that fact. Taking from Peter to pay Paul, rather than fixing the transportation system that we have. Do cars need to be less polluting, off course they, is there room for EV’s, yes?
Why the electric bus system was ever taken out of cities in North America, like Toronto is a mind boggler for me.
The only way in Canada to finance Freeland pipe dream would be to punish ICE’s users, and raise carbon taxes to unreasonable amounts; to subsidize a a massive logistics infrastructure and transportation system, and that would be in the trillions of dollars. Poorer people will be without, as vehicle ownership would be far too costly and as charging ‘deserts’ will take hold and frequent only those that can afford it.
The impact of electric has not well thought out by the Canadian government as it assumes a great deal. For instance it has not fully understood what would happen if many, many cars within cities and small towns were hooked up to the power grids; black-outs and brown-outs could be frequent occurrences as more and more vehicles join the grid.
England for instance has engaged this issue and has put legislation in action to combat these new issues. As it addresses Grid stability: randomized delay function as a democratic solution to these unseen problems. “Minimum charging current or power” and “Default off–peak charging mode” and then there is the matter of public safety. Power failures and blackouts and national emergency, weather and seasonal changes which affect consumption and even the matter of consumer suppliers and the ideas of SMART function.
The idea of the fellow next door who will affected with reduced consumption during these peak hours and he does not own an electric vehicle all add the growing problem. In essence electric vehicles will cost more and cause mounting problems too numerous to mention and destabilize a long fought for stability of the electric grid, they will cause other environmental problems, they are not as clean as they are purported to be.
The ideas of supply and demand of batteries and battery minerals is a another issue in the matter of warring nations and cooperate greed.
In 2018 three countries dominated the world market in rechargeable batteries…
“Manufacturers from three countries in Asia, China, Japan and Republic of Korea dominate the
rechargeable battery market. In 2018, less than 3 percent of the total global demand for EV batteries was supplied by companies outside these three countries, and only approximately 1 per cent was supplied by European companies.”
North America lags in these technologies, and batteries and the minerals involved in battery manufacturing are both costly to manufacture and to replace. It can be in the tens of thousands of dollars, if past the standard eight year warranty, 160,000 km most EV’ manufacturers are handing out. Recycling old batteries is a difficult and always problem filled endeavor of sustainable technology. The deposal of such waste is future environmental problem waiting to happen, as ground water would/could be contaminated with toxic minerals used in battery manufacturing.
China dominates the world in rare earths mining and production and has since the beginning. Environmental laws impede and restrict western nations. And countries like China have evaded prosecution for environmental pollution. And those environmental laws in the west are strict in regard to groundwater contamination and the disposal of batteries, they are very expensive to make, to depose of, and to recycle. And recycling has gained a bad name for its negligence in environmental problems.
The west has always put it waste in other places with lack of concern for environmental laws in other nations. Other nations bought and recycled, and disposed of that waste. That is no longer tolerated around the world as this has caused corruption and costly fixes after the mess is discovered. Nations have learned the hard way what taking in the west’s waste will cost them in the end.
Chrystia Freeland is a dreamer in the least, but I would a liar for the WEF in the end. The Liberals waste public taxes and implement unreal programs than benefit only a few, they are are always weak on vision, and big on ideas.
In Canada, Liberal ideology can no longer be supported by an over burdened taxpayer who receives very little for the amount taken from them.
The end is coming for this liberal government.
