“On behalf of the Progressive Conservative caucus, I’m thrilled to see the Keystone XL pipeline finally receive Presidential approval today. This has been a project that the Progressive Conservatives have long supported. Previous PC governments were proud to lay the groundwork for this approval by building strong partnerships that will keep our province competitive on a global scale.
We know that Premier Notley has been fighting this pipeline for years and continues to be unsupportive of a project that will benefit Alberta. In the Legislature, I’ve repeatedly called on Premier Notley to back this pipeline but she refuses to take a stand for Albertans. Keystone XL will put thousands of Albertans back to work and we strongly urge the NDP government to begin showing their support.”
