Canada’s Trudeau Wants To Impose Drastic ‘Climate Change’ Restrictions On Farmers Just Like The Netherlands

Canada’s Trudeau Wants To Impose Drastic ‘Climate Change’ Restrictions On Farmers Just Like The Netherlands

Calgary Sun: “Citing climate change as the reason, the government wants to see emissions of nitrous oxide from fertilizer reduced.” 

Following in the footsteps of the Dutch government, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is set to impose tougher climate emission restrictions on the country’s farmers. “Citing climate change as the reason, the government wants to see emissions of nitrous oxide from fertilizer reduced,” the Canadian daily Calgary Sun reported earlier this month.

The government’s plan to impose a drastic cut in emissions sets the stage for a farmers’ revolt, similar to the one raging in the Netherlands. “The government has now set a national target “to reduce absolute levels of GHG emissions arising from fertilizer application,” which is exactly the opposite of what farmers have been telling them. Farm groups have been arguing for a reduction in the intensity of emissions, meaning less fertilizer with nitrous oxide per bushel of product, the Canadian newspaper added.

Trudeau is pushing for more brutal ‘Climate Change’ regulations almost a month after the Dutch government enforced similar emission laws, triggering nationwide farmers’ protests.

The Canadian newspaper Toronto Sun, on Friday, reported the Trudeau government’s plans:

Provincial agriculture ministers are expressing frustration with the Trudeau government over plans to effectively reduce fertilizer use by Canada’s farmers in the name of fighting climate change.

A meeting of federal and provincial ministers wrapped up in Saskatoon on Friday with several provinces saying they are disappointed.

The federal government is looking to impose a requirement to reduce nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizers saying it is a greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. While the Trudeau government says they want a 30% reduction in emissions, not fertilizer, farm producer groups say that at this point, reducing nitrous oxide emissions can’t be done without reducing fertilizer use.

“Provinces were disappointed by the lack of flexibility and consultation regarding the federal target,” Ontario’s Lisa Thompson said after the meeting.

Several provincial governments, and organizations representing farmers have asked for emissions reductions from fertilizer to be measured via intensity – how much food is produced compared to the amount of fertilizer used. The Trudeau government is demanding an absolute reduction in emissions, which farmers say will result in less food being produced at a time when the world can ill afford it.

The drastic measures proposed by the Trudeau government are in line with the policies dictated by the European Union on all its member countries. The radical ‘Climate Change’ agenda, backed by the EU, the United Nations, and the Switzerland-based World Economic Forum, is devastatingly impacting the agriculture sector from Africa to Asia.

Trudeau aimed at the farmers less than six months after his government ruthlessly quelled Canada’s trucker protests. In early January 2021, thousands of truckers from across the nation converged on the Canadian capital, Ottawa. Tens of thousands of ordinary Canadians joined the truckers and motorists under the “Freedom Convoy” banner, protesting the Trudeau government’s COVID restrictions and vaccine mandates.

Trudeau crushed the Freedom Convoy by invoking the ‘Emergency Act’ and putting the leaders of the truckers’ movement behind the bar.

But Trudeau’s crackdown failed to crush the spirit of the anti-globalist movement. The Canadian Freedom Convoy inspired similar protests worldwide, including in the U.S., Australia, and France. When farmers’ protests erupted in the Netherlands last months, Dutch protesters were seen carrying Canadian flags as a symbol of a worldwide protest against the globalist elites.

My ancestors, including my mother and all grandparents, were farmers in Quebec for many generations going back to the very beginning of Canada. The growing season up there is very short so life as a farmer was, and I imagine still is, very difficult already. Good work Fidel! Maybe you should consider taking down the hydroelectric dam network too!

    You grow wheat on land unsuitable for anything else. Unless you are sneaking in an additional crop in a short season. If you can grow corn or soy or potatoes, you grow that instead of wheat.

    Canada grows a lot of wheat for hungry people around the Globe.

All part of the plan

Re: UN Agenda 2050

Goal 2

2.3, 2.4, some 2.5 and 2.A,B and C

Its not stupid, not leftist – its part of the plan

    When millions and millions of starving children die, can we hang all the bureaucrats and politicians that shutdown the Fertilizer plants?

      Dathurtz in reply to MattMusson. | July 25, 2022 at 6:25 pm

      We should probably do it before millions more die.

      taurus the judge in reply to MattMusson. | July 26, 2022 at 7:19 am

      Seriously, why do you think they are doing this in the first place?

      Also, if this “WE” you speak of don’t get off of the couch and not only bring MAGA in in force but KEEP MAGA THERE, there wont be any “we” doing ANYTHING to “them”.

      The reason they have gotten this far is a total lack of action and accountability on OUR part- they will NOT stop because its “the right thing to do”.

      More of the same is not going to stop them- it will actually embolden them.

I don’t wish for Trudeau and his fellow marxist meat puppets to accidentally trip into a wood chipper, but if it happened, I would not be upset about it.

Let’s go brandon!

Just plain insanity coupled with governmental powers. The National Socialists would have bren

“Lets go, overthrow Trudeau”

I very much believe that the pace and scale of attempting to implement so many frankly radically harmful policy changes is like lighting a beacon. Everyday people are beginning to see what is happening and are not happy.

“Oh, hey! Look what’s happening in the Netherlands!”
“Huh. We ought to try that here.”

He really thinks he’s crushed all the independent people that backed and participated in the trucker rallies.

I really hope he has another think coming.

The question is, will Canada then be able to feed themselves? Turdeau has absolutely not asked that question.

If it will cause the people who voted for him to starve to death, I say we let this play out.

    Ironclaw in reply to Andy. | July 25, 2022 at 4:33 pm

    The problem is that it will bite the people who weren’t stupid enough to vote for him equally.

Starve our voice, and our bellies.
The times are indeed a-changing

Canada produces 1.6% of global greenhouse emissions. China produces 25% of global emissions. China is building one new coal fired power plant every WEEK to deal with climate change. And Canada is going to destroy its farming industry to deal with climate change.

Does that make sense to anybody else except Trudeau?

    He’s not doing it because it makes sense.

      What he’s doing does not make sense if you assume his goal are rational. The radicals want fewer humans on the planet and those who remain, under their thumb. The resulting chaos and death will be used for their purposes, Trudeau, and the rest of the Movement,

When I was a kid, the nutcases were pushing the whole “coming ice-age” line. These people are full of shit and nothing they have predicted has ever come to pass, yet here we are.

Too many otherwise intelligent people have swallowed the “climate catastrophe” garbage hook, line, and sinker. This green agenda crap will set us back to a point where the worst events of previous centuries repeat themselves.

    I’m coming to believe that the only rational explanation for this is the destruction of civilization and a return to the Dark Ages. I used to ask history and civ profs how on earth humanity went from the Golden Ages to the Dark, and they could never explain it in a way that made sense, but I think we are getting a glimpse of it now. These evil monsters would rather reign in Hell than serve (the people) in Heaven, and if it means creating hell on earth and wiping out massive chunks of the global population, they’re all in.

      If you study the history of ancient Rome – and to a lesser extent the Byzantine Empire – it’s pretty bloody obvious what happens: prosperity destroys. The easier and safer life becomes, the more those who do not have to spend all their days hewing to the rules that guarantee survival look for something else to give their life direction and meaning. And since they want to dissociate themselves from the poor folk, doing the things that guarantee a prosperous and sustainable society are right out. Enter the foederati. Enter Catharism. Enter socialism.

      The other – and disturbing – lesson of history is that America is unique in its citizen revolt leading to a greater, freer and more prosperous nation. In every other instance where an Empire has become weakened and decadent by internal dissent and dissolution, what happens is invasion, plunder and subjugation.

        CommoChief in reply to daniel_ream. | July 25, 2022 at 6:23 pm

        Prosperity, by itself, doesn’t destroy. Mass prosperity, defined as lifting people out of poverty and squalor, is a universal good. Individual prosperity though is more tricky. Without a solid foundation 9/10 lottery winners piss it all away. Their sudden prosperity damaged them because they had no restraint.

        Plenty of people in the USA still adhere to Stoic virtues and philosophy even if they don’t conceptualize it that way. The influence of Christianity and its adoption or incorporation of many aspects of Stoicism still resonates in the USA.

        It might be more correct to argue that when the elites of an empire abandon self restraint for pure exploitive profit, hedonism or a libertine lifestyle that an empire rapidly declines. In the USA we are, as you noted, unique. Part of that is our successful war(s) of independence. Part of it is a higher level of religious affiliation.

        IMO the largest reason is that, compared to Europe, we have a large class of Yeomanry or minor country gentry who still answer the call to duty and are still restrained in habits. They still willingly serve on a Jury, enter military service, volunteer at their community school and youth sports, contribute funds and time to make their communities a better place.

          Prosperity, by itself, doesn’t destroy.
          Combined with human nature, it often does.
          Deuteronomy even has God warning the Israelites through Moses that “when you’ve been in the land a while and you’re rich – crops, sheep, easy life – you will forget me and start thinking you did this all yourself. Then bad things happen.” (paraphrased heavily)

          GWB,

          Those who heed the warning not to stray from their foundation of positive virtues have much different outcomes than those who choose to turn their backs on virtue and descend into a selfish libertine lifestyle.

      The average human exhales about 2.3 pounds of carbon dioxide on an average day. “Wiping out massive chunks of the global population” is a feature, not a bug.

        You’re assuming that they actually care about CO2. They don’t.

          Hell no. It’s just one of their many excuses. No matter the issue the prescription is the same. End Capitalism, private property and nations, introduce one world government and communism. Whatever tool they need to this end

      Canada is worlds 5th largest food exporter. (Netherlands is second). The Netherlands has 1,000,000 head of cattle, and supplies milk products, pork and beef to Europe. It is also the world’s number one tomato exporter. Tomato is a core crop. Canada is also a very large beef and pork exporter, frequently processing the pork in the manner purchasing agents desire for their international market. But more importantly, Canada is the world’s largest exporter of pulses….beans, lentils and peas. All core crops. It is also provides cooking oils and mustard to the Americas.

    When I was in HS in ’71 (I’ll give you a moment to do the math.), my young, earnest chem teacher told us he would not have children since he expected he would live to see them starve to death during the New Ice Age. Which was to start in 1980. I’m sure that right now he is just as fervent a believer in “climate change” causing “global warming”. It’s a religious belief, inured to reason – or actual science.

      Martin in reply to Strelnikov. | July 25, 2022 at 5:01 pm

      At least a new ice age would be a danger to our ability to feed 8 billion people. Warming is almost certain to be benign, not that I believe we are actually the main cause of changes to the climate which has been happening since the dawn of time.

        jb4 in reply to Martin. | July 25, 2022 at 6:40 pm

        CO2 is plant food and many more people now die from the cold than the heat. This is a scam about power and money. Exhibit A is the opposition to nuclear, the obviously best approach, not 1,000 year old technology – windmills, one of which was just blown up by lightning..

After nitrogen and CO2, only one dangerous gas will remain to be removed form Earth: Oxygen.

They have been predicting mass starvation for 220 years and they are tired of waiting.

Only the vile, callous, evil, stupid and totalitarian Dumb-o-crats/European Leftists/Other Leftists would seek to emulate and replicate the corrosive spirit of Stalin’s collectivization schemes and Mao’s Great Leap Forward, with predictably destructive and deadly consequences. But, naturally, the apparatchiks couldn’t care less. This is about fanatical and uncompromising fealty to their “green” jihad.

    guyjones in reply to guyjones. | July 25, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    The apparatchiks don’t care how many people are killed, whether by starvation, or, loss of electrical power, etc., in the process of pursuing their narcissistic, halcyon “green” fantasies.

      venril in reply to guyjones. | July 26, 2022 at 9:15 am

      Gotta break a few eggs to reach Utopia. We’ll honor their (bang, got another one) sacrifice for the greater good.

        I admire your spirit, comrade! I will recommend that you receive the Order of Lenin for your revolutionary fervor and commitment to the motherland.

They know exactly what this will do. They know that food shortages and skyrocketing prices will be the result. It will devastate the grocery-restaurant industry too. They simply do not care.

    GWB in reply to geronl. | July 26, 2022 at 8:56 am

    And, after the grocers and restaurateurs are nationalized, then the gov’t can ‘fix’ all the things wrong with them, and we all go to live in utopia.

Subotai Bahadur | July 25, 2022 at 8:15 pm

Noting that Trudeau already crushed the truckers AND made clear the clauses in their equivalent of the Bill of Rights [the Charter of Rights and Freedoms] that allow the government to suspend them at will, will be used to suppress freedom; Canada will roll over and starve. Unlike the Dutch who have a history of resistance to tyranny, Canadians will yield.

Subotai Bahadur

First they came for the truckers. Then they came for the farmers.
