Environment minister slams oilpatch for shelling out sky-high profits to shareholders

The federal environment minister is calling out Canada's oil companies for failing to put cash behind their promises to tackle climate change. Steven Guilbeault says the country's major oil players have promised to do something about greenhouse gas emissions but instead have funnelled most of their record-breaking profits to shareholders. This is at least the third time in the last six months Guilbeault's frustration has spilled over as oil company profits soar. This time his critiques came in the form of a video posted to Twitter as major petroleum producers began releasing their third-quarter earnings. https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/guilbeault-oil-companies-profits-environment-1.6634238

    That profit is an illusion based on concealing the unpaid environmental costs. "There will be no profit or satisfaction for anyone if pollution continues to destroy our planet." Margaret Thatcher, 1989 UN General Assembly

      Simple fix here. For a start Canada could discontinue subsidizing the petroleum industry with billions of our tax $$s.
