and NDP/Singh continues to purposely lie & misinform; today vowing to end, "PM Trudeau's increased subsidies to Big Oil".

waldo factoids:
- the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) broadly reported the federal government funded oil and gas companies to the tune of $1.9 billion during the pandemic year of 2020... this being the so-called "subsidy" increase NDP/Singh is vowing to end. What NDP/Singh purposely omits in his targeted statement is to explain that:

=> $1.4 billion of that amount was to support the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan with investments in the clean-up of orphaned and inactive wells... related work that would create, between them, 8500 jobs for workers in the 3 provinces.
=> the remaining funding of that amount went to such things as to: help an assortment of companies reduce their emissions while creating related jobs (both temporary and permanent); public transit bus optimizations toward electrification of buses; the build of a battery-pack assembly plant for electric vehicles; etc..
