“Davos Elite at it’s worst” Poilievre grills Carney for killing Canadian jobs while heavily investing in regions with serious human rights issues


2 minute read

Former Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney addressed a Federal Industry Committee hearing Thursday.  That gave Conservative shadow critic Pierre Poilievre the opportunity to point out several disturbing realities regarding the work of Brookfield Asset Management.  Mark Carney is Head of Impact Investing at Brookfield.

These compelling exchanges give disturbing insight into the movement to ditch oil and gas production in favour of renewable power.  The videos clearly point out some of the issues regarding links to human rights abuses and widespread use of coal fired power.

Davos elite Mark Carney tells Industry Committee he opposes western Canadian pipeline project, but supports his company’s multibillion-dollar-pipeline investments in Latin America and the Middle East.
He can make money off fossil fuels abroad, but Canadian workers can’t do so at home.
Face it: the Davos elites are screwing working people.
Here’s a millionaire whose company invests in Middle East & South American fossil fuels, but he wants to shut down pipeline jobs in Canada.
He makes a fortune, while turning other people’s lives upside down.


In this exchange Poilievre asks Carney to acknowledge that Brookfield Asset Management buys about 50% of the raw material they use to build solar panels from coal-powered plants in China.  The main product is suspected by US Lawmakers (from Reuters) of  being produced in work camps in the region where the Chinese Communist Party is punishing the local Uighurs population.

In a closing statement on his social media page Poilieve posted a follow up question for Canadians.

Carney is lecturing business about putting human values before shareholder profits.
He had a chance to put his money where his mouth is today, by recognizing the Uyghur genocide & risk angering China where his company has billions in business.
Did he choose people or profits?

Suncor Energy Inc. says it will cut 1,500 jobs by the end of the year in an effort to reduce costs and improve the company’s lagging financial performance.

Spokeswoman Sneh Seetal confirmed the cuts, saying they will be spread across the organization and will affect both employees and contractors.

Seetal says employees were informed of the cuts in a companywide email from Suncor CEO Rich Kruger earlier this afternoon.

Suncor has been under pressure from shareholders — including activist investor Elliott Investment Management — to improve its financial and share price performance, which has lagged its peers.

Kruger, the former CEO of Imperial Oil Ltd., took the reins at Suncor earlier this spring and has been tasked with turning around the oilsands giant.

Suncor employs people across the country, in the U.S., and the U.K. Its corporate head office is located in Calgary.
