Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is heading out on a five city, cross country tour to promote Canadian oil and gas.
She's going to Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto and Ottawa to sell an idea she has long opposed: ethical oil.
Is Notley really serious about her conversion to fossil fuel advocacy after a lifetime of protesting them and two straight years of adding regulatory roadblocks to the struggling oil and gas industry?
Or is this all just insincere lip service and the first act in her 2019 re-election campaign?
Joining me tonight to discuss pipeline politics and what it means to be a small time pro oil sands activist fighting the well funded, foreign backed environmental movement is Robbie Picard from Oilsands Strong.
