President-elect Donald Trump has promised to approve the Keystone XL pipeline within his first 100 days in office. But are the federal liberals now flip flopping on their support for the pipeline?
You may recall that during our own federal election campaign last year, Keystone XL was the pipeline of choice for Trudeau and the Liberals, but things have changed and Trudeau now appears poised to approve TransMountain in BC and abandon support for Keystone XL.
According to Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr, the Keystone XL pipeline is no longer crucial for our oil exports. But that doesn’t make sense.
Watch as I explain how the Liberals are rationalizing this shift and offer my own theory about why they’re doing it.
I don’t think Justin Trudeau and the Liberals were really actually for Keystone XL, figuring their buddy President Obama and his heir-apparent Hillary Clinton would oppose it so they could virtue signal to Alberta and claim to be champions of the pipeline.
But oh, how quickly they flip-flopped with Trump’s election win.
What an embarrassment.
