  • Oct 9, 2019 | 07:53 2 Since when did the agriville administrators decide that posting political advertising during a federal election is the job of the moderator of a public forum?

    The one sided ad posted looks like it is from Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

    Chuck one simple fact is that there is only one party that has a chance of winning that is interested in growing our economy in western Canada and that is the Conservatives. The Liberal's and to a much greater extent the NDP and the Green's want to shut down western Canada's energy industry.

    I don't have a problem with this being posted by agriville's administrators, it will spark some debate. Reply With Quote

    Funny how the left thinks free speech only applies to them, not everyone else.

    You are free to start your own forum, and post whatever you like if you disagree with what the proprietors of this one post.

    In fact, if you have any principles, I highly recommend you do so, every post you make on this site contributes to the financial success of it's capitalist owners through advertising revenue. So, in your crusade to end capitalism, you are inadvertently supporting it.

  • Oct 9, 2019 | 08:54 6 I assume it is a paid for advertisement.
    It was short and provided a link if interested.

    You can open it or not and agree, disagree or ignore.

    If it keeps this as a free to use forum for me, I'm fine with it. Reply With Quote

    Given his perfect track record of supporting the losing side on important issues, one would Think that he would be used to it by now and not take it so personally. Reply With Quote

    Oct 9, 2019 | 14:55 13 This isn’t, never has been and possibly never will be a public forum. It’s a private forum that the owners choose to give access to if you follow their rules. Although I’m sure chuckles is one of those who would prefer to see a leftist government in complete control of what people can post on the internet Reply With Quote

  • Oct 9, 2019 | 16:57 14 I was rather disappointed to see this too. I'm wondering if those jumping in to defend the Agriville owners would have done the same if it had been a video championing the carbon tax for example? Sure it's their site and they are free to post whatever they want but in posting content that is clearly biased to one side of the political debate it detracts from the impartiality of the site. It disappoints me but remember it doesn't cost me anything to walk away from this forum - if the participants walk away Agriville loses their business. I think it would have been smarter to have allowed CAPP to buy ad space on the site. Reply With Quote

    I would absolutely leave here if I knew the owners were championing the carbon tax. Since you asked. Reply With Quote

    Exactly, you make my point - see how the dynamic changes when the apparent impartiality of a public discussion forum is compromised? Reply With Quote

    I believe that is just like preaching to the choir.

    Oct 10, 2019 | 07:26 23 I don't think Joe would have posted this. I am not surprised by all the one sided support for this message. We know most of the Conservatives have strong political ties to the oil and gas sector.

    But a vote for energy also should include all energy sources. There is huge investment and jobs being created as the world moves away from fossil energy and towards lower carbon emission technology.
    Are we going ignore all the emerging economic opportunities in clean energy?

    Yes we need oil and gas and the jobs that go with it but we also need to be ready for the future or we will be in big trouble if we put all our economic eggs in an industry that is in decline. Reply With Quote

    Furrow posted a very interesting video a while back which discussed how and why wind and solar are not the solution. It also had some very interesting statistics backing up what AB5 has always said that increased renewables in the electricity supply mix always raise the prices payed by consumers. I was surprised you didn't comment Chuck!!

    As for your huge investment B.S., windmills and solar panels are all manufactured offshore, it will certainly be good for China. I actually have no problem with wind and solar being added to the mix but to sell them as a 100% replacement for existing electricity sources is absolutely rediculous and unworkable. The investment in new solar and wind farms will do very little for government coffers. Reply With Quote

    The worst thing that can happen to a forum is pare down the members till they all think exactly the same way. Admin, you should know better.

    How about "Energy" come clean up the 150,000 abandoned wells in Alberta? ****ers. Reply With Quote

    Really? What credible source is reporting that the fossil fuel energy industry is already in decline? And what credible source is forecasting the fossil fuel usage to decline at any point in the foreseeable future?

    Do you have any idea how much FF use is increasing annually right now? I've posted it for you multiple times in the past. Renewables share of total energy is a rounding error.

    What economic opportunities? Unless of course in your warped socialist world view, you consider massive wealth transfer from productive industries to virtue signalling crony capitalists to be an economic opportunity? Reply With Quote

    Who said anything about removing members for having a difference of opinion? I wouldn't even bother visiting if everyone thought like I did. Wouldn't learn anything, it wouldn't challenge my understanding of how the world operates, there would be nothing to debate.

    I'm not aware of anyone being removed from the forum except the ever reinvented BTOFarmall, but had nothing to do with his politics or opinion. Reply With Quote

    ...no, we're already in big trouble because we are sabotaging a sound wealth generating industry for smoke and mirrors Reply With Quote
