Legislation sends clear message to Horgan that there’s a price to be paid for his anti-pipeline extremism.
B.C. NDP premier John ‘Hypocrite’ Horgan is advocating an extreme position.
He thinks he should be able to ignore federal law and block the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, thus dictating how much oil Alberta can send into B.C.
And yet, he simultaneously says that Alberta can’t cut oil exports to B.C.
He’s somehow arguing that he should have control over what Alberta does with their oil, which is an obviously absurd position.
Now, Alberta is making it clear that Horgan will pay a price for his foolish scheming.
The Alberta Legislature has passed legislation giving the province the authority to restrict oil exports to B.C., which could result in huge price increases in the West Coast province – already facing incredibly high gas prices.
“Alberta will be equipped with new tools to assert our rights to control the flow of our resources to British Columbia,” said Alberta Premier Rachel Notley. “Albertans, British Columbians and all Canadians should understand that if the path forward for the pipeline through B.C. is not settled soon, I’m ready and prepared to turn off the taps.”
Pathetically, the B.C. NDP government are trying to argue that the legislation is unconstitutional because it aims at ‘harming’ another province. Of course, by that logic the B.C. NDP can’t oppose the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, because opposing it hurts Alberta (and all of Canada).
Horgan’s hypocrisy and the NDP-Green anti-pipeline extremism is causing serious economic damage in Canada, and it needs to end ASAP. Unfortunately, the problem is being left to Alberta’s legislature to try and handle, since Justin Trudeau has shown himself far too weak to actually get tough.
