The Liberals are appointing their friends to National Energy Board review panels, and now those friends are stalling the approval process.
The Rebel spoke with CPC MP for Lakeland, Shannon Stubbs to get her thoughts on the consequences of not moving forward with critical oil and gas infrastructure in Canada.
She notes that in addition to driving away investments and putting the livelihoods of those who depend on these projects in jeopardy, the Liberals often talk about the need to earn confidence in our regulatory process yet the Liberals seem to be the only ones who lack that confidence.
Canada has the highest standards when it comes to safety and the environment in regard to oil and gas industry regulations and the construction of infrastructure.
But, Canadians are being played for fools while the rest of the world exports their product.
The US has lifted their 40 year export ban only to become the largest producer in the world after denying the Keystone XL pipeline on the basis of climate change.
A time will come when our share of the market will be gone, taken up by the US and other oil and gas producing countries.
Sooner or later, the Liberals are going to be forced to make some serious decisions.
