EXCLUSIVE: Docs confirm Notley’s pro-pipeline mission to Ottawa was “political theatre”

It’s feeling a little Venezuelan in Edmonton as Premier Notley makes overt gestures to Kinder Morgan to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline in its entirety to save the embattled project.

But how did it even get to this?

Notley's talking tough now, offering to nationalize a multi-billion dollar pipeline that needs law and order, not money. But how serious was she before about getting the pipeline built?

I filed a freedom of information request with the Alberta executive Council, Notley’s bureaucratic handlers, in November 2017, right after Notley had taken her apparent pro-pipeline mission to Ottawa.

I wanted to know whether the mission she had gone on was just political theatre or a real effort to act in the best interests of Albertans to get a private-sector pipeline that would get our oil to tidewater.

Here's what I asked the executive Council:

“Provide copies of all documents, including emails, briefing notes, memos, etc., regarding the planning of the Premier's visit to Ottawa on November 21-22, 2017, including any meetings with the Prime Minister during the visit.”

Watch to find out what I learned.

Notley's Ottawa visit wasn't about promoting the pipeline at all. It was about promoting her climate leadership, bragging about her carbon tax, and promoting herself as a global leader in the fight against climate change.

In the meantime back home, the certainty around getting the Trans Mountain pipeline done was quickly disintegrating.

And now that Kinder Morgan has decided Canada isn’t a good risk for their investors’ money, Notley and Trudeau are talking.

They waited until it was too late, but I think that was probably the plan all along.

Don’t worry Canadian Patriot, Andrew Scheer won’t let our Governments sell our resources to China.

As far as Canadian’s Rights are going, our people are already almost as restricted as the Chinese people. 1 minute video on Scheer.

Canadians need to comprehend the seriousness of Notley and Trudeau nationalizing our energy. If the government owns our energy, it can sell it to whomever it pleases. Imagine if the Beijing based Sinopec or DONG Energy owns our natural resources? Which is not a stretch of the imagination, since members of the Communist Party of China already own much of Canada’s prime real estate.
Canadians need to stop this now. Because both the Alberta NDP and Trudeau’s Liberals hold majority governments, it will be up to the people to petition them out of power. Notley did NOT run her election campaign on the Carbon Tax, nor on nationalizing energy. This is unconstitutional, and easily the legal basis for petitioning her out of power. Wake up Canada, and DO something about this before it’s too late.
