In talks over the construction of the Energy East pipeline, Alberta's NDP premier Rachel Notley just Quebec's Liberal premier a veto over her province's economic future.
Notley has always been anti-pipeline, and she's surrounded herself with cabinet ministers and a chief of staff who feel the same way.
But of course, she has to pretend to be pro-pipeline and pro-energy industry now that she's in office.
So today Notley claimed she wants to build the Energy East pipeline, but that the Quebec premier wants guarantees about "environmental protection" first.
That's weird because Quebec has plenty of pipelines already, bringing in OPEC oil, and they certainly haven't issued any ultimatums to the Saudis about "climate change."
You see, Notley is pretending she's making a concession on carbon taxes to Quebec in return for their approval of the pipeline, but the opposite is true.
It's the cap and trade scheme she really wants, not Energy East at all.
