During the 2019 federal election campaign we learned, with some surprise, that it was the Bloc Québécois who was responsible for the shutting down of the Energy East project. It was not the hundreds of petitions, protests, blockades and sabotages that led to the withdrawal of the project, no! It was the Bloc Québécois , the same Bloc who is currently trying to sell us another pipeline. A gas pipeline this time : The Énergie Saguenay of GNL Quebec .
What the Bloc did was nothing new. It is a form of “greenwashing”, presently popular among our elected oﬀicials. This particular form of greenwashing steals the work done in local struggles in order to gain a few votes. And our elected stooges do it because it works!
