Last week I spoke to a champion of Alberta, rookie Conservative MP Shannon Stubbs.
Stubbs represents the North Eastern Alberta riding of Lakeland. Her huge riding is full of farm towns and oil patch communities. She’s been one of the most vocal and articulate advocates for Alberta and for Canada’s energy sector in the House of Commons in her role as Deputy Energy Critic.
Stubbs shared with me her thoughts on the Energy East pipeline project, a national carbon tax and the impact the economic downturn has had on the people she represents and the community she lives in.
Shannon Stubbs is unabashedly standing up for Alberta and she is standing up for Canadian jobs. It’s a stark contrast to Prime Minister Trudeau who won’t say he will support Energy East, even if the National Energy Board approves it.
