L’Alberta signe des contrats avec le CN et le CP pour transporter du brut par rail

Le gouvernement albertain signe de nouveaux contrats avec les compagnies ferroviaires Canadien Pacifique (CP) et Canadien National (CN) pour transporter plus de pétrole par rail vers les marchés américains et internationaux. La province estime que l’investissement de 3,7 milliards de dollars dans ces contrats générera 5,9 milliards de dollars de revenus sur trois ans pour l’Alberta.

Les revenus nets sont donc estimés à 2,2 milliards de dollars.

Les contrats comprennent la location de 4400 wagons, a annoncé mardi la première ministre de l’Alberta, Rachel Notley.

Les expéditions ferroviaires commenceront à partir de juillet 2019 avec 20 000 barils prévus par jour pour atteindre 120 000 barils de brut par jour d’ici la mi-année 2020, selon le gouvernement provincial. En novembre dernier, Rachel Notley avait annoncé qu’elle achèterait 7000 wagons pour transporter ce même nombre de barils.

Le gouvernement prévoit ainsi de réduire de 4 $ US la différence de prix entre le baril de pétrole américain et canadien entre 2020 et 2022.

Les destinations spécifiques pour le transport du pétrole sont en cours de négociation, mais l’Alberta envisage notamment d’en vendre aux raffineries américaines du golfe du Mexique.

Bien que le transport de pétrole par chemin de fer ait établi des records pendant l’année 2018, des données de 2019 montrent une baisse évidente de l’activité. Les exportations ferroviaires de pétrole ont baissé de 25 % en janvier.

Une méthode « sécuritaire »

La première ministre albertaine assure que les wagons respectent les dernières normes de sécurité. Elle affirme que l’acier utilisé pour les fabriquer est « plus épais » et que les wagons respectent tous les standards de protection thermique.

« Nous allons transporter ce pétrole ailleurs de façon sûre, tout comme s’il voyageait dans nos propres cours », a déclaré Rachel Notley.

Les wagons sont neufs, a déclaré la première ministre albertaine, qui dit faire confiance à ce que lui disent les experts en matière d’infrastructure ferroviaire.

Biometric Vaccines Are Here Preceding Forced Digital ID

The future of vaccines is here, just in time for the coming forced digital ID. This isn’t some sci-fi movie based on some conspiracy theorists’ idea of Revelation where every living being is required to be tagged. Biometric vaccines are real, are in use and have been deployed in the United States.

Biometric vaccines are immunizations laced with digital biometrics, created from merging the tech industry with big pharma. This new form of vaccine injects microchips into the body creating a global ID matrix to track and control every person. Not only has this satanic system already been rolled out, billions may already have been injected unaware.

ID2020 Alliance, a program aimed at chipping every person on earth, has collaborated with GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations) to inject these microchips into the body through immunization.

Where to Live Now: A data-driven look at Ottawa neighbourhoods

Editor

What does community have to do with buying a house? Do people really want friendly neighbours, or do they just want the most square footage for their buck?

In The Village Effect: How Face-to-Face Contact Can Make Us Healthier, Happier and Smarter, Montreal psychologist Susan Pinker cited a 2010 study conducted at Brigham Young University in Idaho that analyzed relationship data for more than 300,000 people over nearly eight years. She discovered that people who were integrated into their communities had half the risk of dying during that time as those who led more solitary lives. In Pinker’s analysis, integration meant simple interactions such as exchanging baked goods, babysitting, borrowing tools, and spur-of-the-moment visits — exactly the kinds of exchanges we saw grow when COVID-19 forced us all to stay home.

For this year’s real estate feature in the Spring/Summer 2020 print edition, we crunched the numbers to find the neighbourhoods where we think you’re most likely to find such opportunities for engagement. Using data available through the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study (ONS), we chose six indicators that we believed would attract those looking to connect with the people around them. Omitting rural areas, we awarded points to each neighbourhood according to where it landed in the ranking. (In the event of a tie, we used a secondary indicator of the same theme to refine the ranking.) You’ll find the ten neighbourhoods that performed the best according to those six indicators listed below, along with resident profiles and notable destinations in each ’hood — though many have been forced to adapt to COVID-19, most are offering delivery and/or take-out, and we are hopeful they will resume normal operations once it is safe to do so.
