Proposed rail line provides hope in Alberta's oilpatch

The proposed Alaska to Alberta Railway link is expected to deliver critical exports for the Canadian province’s oil sector, and may drive a new transportation corridor from the Alberta oilsands.

Last month, U.S. President Donald Trump announced he was issuing a presidential permit for the project, the first step in the regulatory process on the U.S. side.

As Mike Le Couteur reports, the huge infrastructure project still has a number of hurdles to clear on both sides of the border before it becomes a reality.

    God sent his Son Jesus Christ to saved you from all your sins. As He said in the book of John 3:16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believe on him should not perish, but have everlasting life

    Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried and third day He rose from the dead1Corinthians 15:1-4 Gospel of Salvation

    What it means? It means your death has been paid! What death? The death of sin. The wage of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our LordRomans 6:23

    Believe him and you will be saved. It's simple. As Paul said in the book of Ephesians 2:8-9For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast

    To be a good person means nothing. Why? Because we arenβ€˜t saved by works, but by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

    What should I do to become a child of God?

    A – Admit you are a sinner in need of a Savior. As it is written: There is non righteous, no, not one – Romans 3:10. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God – Romans 3:23

    B – Believe on finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the Cross – Christ died for your sins, was buried and third day He rose again – 1Cor 15:1-4 Gospel of Salvation. If you want to enter to the Kingdom of Heaven, you must have a faith like a child – children trust their parents. Why I mentioned parents? Because God is our Creator; He is our Father; He is our Parent – Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart – Jeremiah 1:5

    C – Call on the name of the Lord and you will be saved – If you declare with your mouth, β€œJesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved – Romans 10:9-10. For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved – Romans 10:13

    Jesus Christ is the shower/water that cleans us of all unrighteousness. Come now, let us settle the matter, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; thought they are red as crimson, they shall be like woolIsaiah 1:18

    Shalom, God bless you all

    Saw this reported first by Sheila Gunn on Rebel News last week. They don’t get handout money from the government.

    I don't believe Liberals are even capable anymore to do what's good for the country when it comes to the energy sector β€” the anti-energy ideology is in their blood so much so they will always find excuses not to do it.

    Without the consent of indigenous people and without the environmental concerns , Canada became a wealthy developed country.

    With a consent of indigenous people and with environmental concern, Canada is going backward. Poor developing country.

    It's been in the "planning stages" for years, but unable to be built because Trudeau is in office and has destroyed confidence in the Private Sector. Investors pulled out of Canada as soon as Trudeau took office.

    Hopefully it goes through but i fear our government will screw it up like every other major project that would benefit our economy

    BC LNG GAS also tanked as soon as Trudeau got into power. Even it would offset ALL of Chinas coal emissions.

    NO more dirty oil infrastructure build out in Canada. Stop all Canadian coal exports. Transition quickly into clean energies. Climate change is real and will have serious consequences to our quality of life for our children. Time we pay the piper.

    Sushant Singh Rajput was murdered in terrace. Since murders could not come from main gate. They came from backwards. Bcz of fear of getting caught. Hence cameras switched off. He was killed. Punched on eyes. Shot with gun. Strangulation with belt. Many needles on body.
