Conservatives Call For Emergency Debate On Trans Mountain Pipeline Crisis


Speaker agrees, debate will be held tonight.

The Speaker of the House of Commons has agreed to a request by the Conservatives for an emergency debate on the Trans Mountain pipeline crisis.

The debate will be held tonight.

The call for a debate was made by Shannon Stubbs, the Conservative natural resources critic.

As noted by the CP, Stubbs said “thousands of jobs and billions of dollars for the Canadian economy are at stake, making the stalled project an urgent matter that needs the immediate attention of MPs. Speaker Geoff Regan agreed, granting the request on the spot.”

Notably, the Conservatives had called for an emergency debate about two months ago. Yet, the Liberal speaker denied the request.

Similarly, the recent scramble by the Trudeau Liberals to look like they’re doing ‘something’ about the pipeline crisis is a big contrast with their total inaction for months, even as the crisis gathered steam.

It has been known for a long time that John Horgan was trying to shut down the expansion, yet the Trudeau government refused to take action, letting the problem fester to the point at which Kinder Morgan announced the suspension of all non-essential work on the project.

  1. A concern about tying the construction of the pipeline to the notion of social license through self-inflicted pain of a carbon tax is of concern since if it miraculously goes ahead through federal intervention then seemingly the obligation would be to willingly buy into a carbon tax.

  2. The Trudeau government has been stalling for a yr the PM SAID HE WILL PHASE OUT THE OIL SANDS IT LOOKS THAT IS EXACTLY WHATS HAPPENING , ALL CANADIANS SHOULD BE FOR THIS PIPELINE ITS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR ALL CANADIANS NOT JUST ALBERTA THE LIBERIALS HAVE BEEN AGAINST ALBERTA FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER IN 2019 WE CANADIANS CAN CHANGE THIS VOTE CONSERVATIVE AMEN

  3. What can they do? This will be interesting to hear. Well the Lieberal/NDP separatist foreign government kept undermining the Harper government, so it would be great if the Conservatives can help Alberta and BC, obviously the unethical Lieberal/NDP separatist foreign run government will not help them. Maybe they can help figure out who is actually running our Un-Canadian foreign run distructive government and declare them as traitors, put them in prison where they belong. Then we could become Canadian again, and the oil would get moving.

  4. Sad to say my friend nothing will be done as we saw when justin popped in and out without a care for our economy far less for the jurisdictions of western canada especia─║─║y Alberta.
    I wonder how many of lib mps from Alta will speak up for their province.

  5. The emergency debate will unfold something along the lines of Trudeau defending himself and his government as having protected the environment and saving jobs by doing nothing, until the crisis reached the point of risking the economy and the unity of our country. In Trudeau’s mind being reactive instead of proactive is a perfectly wonderful way to govern Canada. The highlight of the debate will come when Trudeau is forced to admit that all of the troubles in the oil industry are a direct result of his deliberate desire to phase out the oil industry while trying to falsely claim to be protecting the environment. And that his claim that you can’t have growing and expanding economy without tighter environmental restrictions is just a failed policy that has created an enormous loss of investment in all areas of the economy. Also this debate should finally put to rest Trudeau’s idea that being a virtuous, selfie loving person that is driven by ideology will solve the problems facing Canada. The worst part of this debate, it comes with Trudeau being conveniently out of the country, so expectations shouldn’t be too high or that Horgan and his supporters are just going to roll over let the pipeline be built.

  6. I still feel what Alberta needs to do is mention secession from canada & talk about having a referendum in Alberta.
    This seems to work good fro kbek & if Alberta does mention it & ottawa does nothing then that will prove beyond a doubt that all ottawa & the east thinks of Alberta & the west is nothing more than a source of money for them.

  7. Unless I am mistaken, the”Speaker” had a similar opportunity on another subject some time back and failed there as well. Perhaps someone had a ‘discussion’ with him about ‘reality.’
