Conservative MP Gérard Deltell emerged from Wednesday's Conservative caucus meeting in Ottawa to give an impassioned defence of pipelines bringing Canadian oil from Western Canada to Quebec and beyond.
"This is good for the economy, this is good for Canada and it is good for Quebec," Deltell said.
A group of Montreal area mayors came out against Energy East last week sparking outrage and calls for Western funded equalization payments to be cut off from Quebec. But Deltell says there are many in the province that support the project, he pointed to refineries in the province that have been bringing in foreign oil instead of Canadian oil for years now.
"Do you want to spend Canadian money going offshore instead of buying Canadian petroleum?”, Deltell asked.
Deltell represents a riding in the Quebec City area. Just across the St. Lawrence River from his district is the Levi, Quebec refinery, one of two operating refineries in the province.
