Our energy sector and the people working in it have faced tough times under this Liberal government.
Before Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister, we had three private companies willing to invest more than $30 billion to build three, nation-building projects that would have created tens of thousands of jobs and generated billions in economic activity.
Those companies continue to invest in pipelines elsewhere in the world.
Just not in Canada.
That’s why Andrew Scheer has come up with a six-point action plan that will strike down the barriers Justin Trudeau has created, and get pipelines built:
Cancel the carbon tax
Repeal Bill C-69, the No-More-Pipelines Bill
End the B.C. shipping ban
Establish timelines for approvals
Eliminate foreign interference in the approvals process
Invoke federal jurisdiction when necessary
A National Energy Corridor would move Canadian oil, gas, electricity, telecommunications, and potentially anything else that runs along the ground, across the country. This is crucial for our ability to create wealth, prosperity, and opportunity for all Canadians.
We have had these legacy projects before, and an Andrew Scheer-led government will spearhead the effort to get them done again.
