Why is Canada on Fire
.. Well, the short answer to that question is, that someone has started them, according to this story about the Alberta fires shared by T.M.:
And then there’s this article about the Quebec fires shared by V.T.:
In the case of the second article, a gentleman is quoted who believes the fires are really all planned, and are all about a political, social, and cultural agenda:
As is to be expected, the army of climate hystericists is out in farce, claiming it was all because of human action:
In answer to that claim, I rather suspect the exact opposite, that the fires, if the result of human action, as the result of the kind of human action that the Province of Alberta suspects: deliberate arson. In the case of Quebec, I do not know, as I’ve not been to that part of Canada, ever. I have been to the provinces from Manitoba westward to the Pacific Coast. But again, not in several decades. I did grow up in South Dakota, and while I did not grow up on a farm, I did see several controlled burn fires that farmers would occasionally set to burn underbrush in wooded areas, to control and minimize fire danger. It was common practice, and as far as I know, used to be common practice in fire-prone places like Nuttyfornia, until, of course, the environmental lobby got ahold of the issue, and banned it, making any fires that might break out even worse. Perhaps that is the case in Canada as well: it’s not human action, but rather, the lack of it, tending to the underbrush problem. I simply don’t know.
In any case, I am digressing from the main point of today’s blog, because like this Canadian gentleman, I strongly suspect that the fires in his country are more examples of “disaster capitalism,” deliberately created crises designed to clear people off land that one can then pick up on the cheap, or if not that, a “crisis of opportunity” that will be used and exploited to do the same thing. Whether deliberately set or not, the main story is not the fires themselves, but like the fires in California, who will ultimately come in to benefit? We’ve already seen Allstate and State Farm insurance refusing to underwrite new policies in that state, citing the unfriendly regulatory climate and their exposure to risk, and it’s clear in the case of State Farm that the nutty policies from the ruling uniparty there are the reasons.
The real question is whether or not those fires were planned. Alberta is looking for arsonists, having found no other explanation for the fires there. In the case of Quebec, the circumstances are even more fishy, if you ask me. There are videos out there right now that are showing the beginnings of several of the Quebec fires, and while Ottawa is saying that this was all due to lightning strikes, the video shows a curious thing: several of the fires appear to begin at exactly the same time, and over a fairly wide, but clustered area.
That considerably raises my suspicion meter, if not into the red zone, then at least into the dark orange zone. What's next?
Perhaps it will be videos from Quebecoise showing what was recorded on some of those videos from California: fires that started at electrical junction boxes, fires that burn homes but not the trees and shrubbery right next to them, or fires melting the concrete and steel of a highway bridge, while right next to it there are unburned trees and shrubs, or beams of light shooting straight into a forest, with fires starting shortly afterwards...
The bottom line for me is this: even though the fires may be put out, the story is not over...
See you on the flip side...
