Finally some good news for the Alberta oil patch. We might see a pipeline built and soon now that Donald Trump is jump starting the long stalled, Obama-blocked, Keystone XL pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico.
In response to the news, Premier Rachel Notley said:
“This project is going to create good jobs here in Alberta and that's my focus” and “it's not that we haven't been a fan of the Keystone XL, it's that it hasn't been a priority”.
But is that the truth? Have the NDP really been fans of Keystone XL?
What about Notley’s appointees? What about Rachel Notley herself?
Watch my video to see what Rachel Notley said about Keystone XL in her very first Question Period as premier. She didn’t seem like a fan.
Carbon taxes don’t get pipelines built, conservative administrations do.
