Trudeau: Next, we need to phase out wood

Trudeau: Next, we need to phase out wood

Halifax — Even though the prime minister is not out of the woods for his oil sands comments, his latest remarks about natural resources are leaving many to question if he can see the forest for the trees.

Last week, Justin Trudeau threw a match onto gasoline when he mentioned “shut[ting] down the oil sands” on his cross-country listening tour. This morning at a town hall in Halifax, the prime minister doubled-down saying that Canadians should also enhance forestry conservation by “phasing out the use of wood.”

“People all over the world think that the prototypical Canadian is a tree-killing lumberjack,” claimed Trudeau on the stump. “We need to leave that perception in the past and branch out into alternatives to wood- and tree-based products.”

Trudeau outlined his position saying that one tree produces the oxygen for 10 people per year, and forests store a huge amount of carbon that would otherwise be in the atmosphere causing climate change. While saying that clear-cutting and deforestation are still common problems across the globe, he argued that they are viable alternatives to using wood for common products.

“Who needs newspaper anymore with the advancement of handheld technology and the Internet?” asked Trudeau. “Also, for construction wouldn’t it be more environmentally friendly to use materials like rocks, mud and soil to build our houses? Sod houses are a Canadian tradition, and we can update them for the 21st century.

“Finally, reusable cloth ‘toilet paper‘ or even fresh maple leaves are great alternatives to traditional toilet paper. They may take a little getting used to, but it’s an amazing way to make going to the bathroom more climate-friendly.”

While Trudeau is passionate about saving the saplings, his opponents are saying that his bark is worse than his bite. “It will take more than the typical Ottawa ‘logrolling‘ for Trudeau to get support for this idea,” snickered Conservative Leader Rona Ambrose.

She concluded, “We need to know how much wood would the PM chuck if the PM could chuck wood.”

  3. This Entitled snowflake of a moron continues to show he Truly “is not ready”.

    Completely out of touch as to be laughable….And its been Climate Change since Day one…right.?? One wonders and can extrapolate that his Principal secretary, Mr. Gerald Butts, is the real driver of the Liberal bus. The ex CEO of the World Wild Life Fund who has stated publicly he would like to see a planet of no more than 1 Billion souls…obviously like minded Eco-Nazis as himself. Note that he is the architect of Ontarios Green Energy Plan that has done so much for Ontario…yea..driving it straight into the economic toilet.

    We seem to be the only country with sizeable resources that is bent on Crapping where we eat…incredible and beyond stupid. Yet the Current Government continues to spend like no tomorrow…,much of it on dubious “foreign aid” to countries such as Jordan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Syria, Pakistan and China no less….I see this as de-facto Wealth Re-Distribution ala the IPCC and the UN agenda 21…and all under the banner of Climate Change

    Maurice Strong’s Socialist dream… alive and embodied in Justin Trudeau. God willing he will get run over by an electric Prius…and can join his Communist Father in hell.

  7. I must say, Trudeau’s really thinking out of the box!! Amazing. Truly amazing. I’m all for building a Sod home and using cloth like wipes in place of toilet paper, anyone who isn’t, obviously doesn’t believe in climate change. I also read somewhere, maybe even on the internet that he only showers twice a week and saves the water from each shower to water his plants with.
