Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has held discussions with the Senegalese President Macky Sall over a partnership that could offer “attractive growth potential” in the oil and gas sector for the West African country.
Justin Trudeau has been on a world tour in an attempt to garner support for a seat at the United Nation’s security council. Trudeau was in Africa last week, where he granted a $10 million package to empower African women.
Trudeau’s willingness to engage in foreign oil and gas projects may come as a surprise to Canadians who have seen the prime minister fail to intervene in illegal blockades over the building of a pipeline in Northern British Columbia.
Speaking of illegal blockades, Saskatchewan’s own man of inaction has popped his head out from under the desk to send a strongly worded tweet.
Trains hauling vital products including energy, resources and agricultural goods are coming to a standstill across our nation.
This situation has the potential to become very dire, very quickly. We need action now from the federal government. pic.twitter.com/yHyuDIo05I

“We need action now”.
We’re just fucking doomed.
