The B.C. NDP are now openly showing their disloyalty to Canada’s energy industry. Instead of supporting the Trans Mountain pipeline and fixing relations with Alberta, they’re planning to buy oil from the United States.
A new report reveals that instead of ending their illegal opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline, the B.C. NDP are planning to buy oil from the United States if Alberta uses Bill 12 to reduce shipments.
So, not only do the B.C. NDP think they have the right to dictate the exact amount of oil Alberta can send into the province (they’ve threatened to sue Alberta for both sending ‘too much’ – with Trans Mountain – or ‘too little’ with Bill 12), but they’re prepared to spend taxpayers dollars on U.S. oil.
As reported by the Financial Post, “Should Alberta’s government use its new powers to throttle back oil shipments to British Columbia, the coastal province plans to be in court that same day to seek an immediate injunction, and is looking to source its oil needs from the State of Washington.”
B.C.’s attorney general David Eby said “There has been work done with Washington state in identifying additional reserves that we might be able to use in the unlikely event that Alberta actually attempts to use this unconstitutional legislation.”
John Horgan is showing where his loyalties and priorities lie, and it’s not with Canada. After all, the majority of B.C. residents support the Kinder Morgan expansion, and many of the groups fighting against it are funded by foreign countries.
Horgan should be ending his opposition to the pipeline, repairing relations with Alberta, and helping to reduce the divisions in our country.
Instead, he’s escalating the fight with Alberta, using unconstitutional means to oppose a pipeline that has widespread public support and planning to get oil from Washington State.
Just when it seems things can’t get any worse, Hypocrite Horgan takes it to a new level.
