READ: Alberta United Conservative Party Statement On Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Court Ruling

“Albertans have every right to be angry and frustrated by the apparent inability of governments across the country to build economically critical infrastructure. We cannot function as a prosperous, modern society with an ever-changing legal standard on issues like environmental impact and Indigenous consultation.”

The Alberta United Conservative Party led by Jason Kenney has released a statement following the court ruling blocking the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. Here’s what they said:

“Today is a sad day for Canada and our ability to move major projects in the national interest forward.

“Albertans have every right to be angry and frustrated by the apparent inability of governments across the country to build economically critical infrastructure. We cannot function as a prosperous, modern society with an ever-changing legal standard on issues like environmental impact and Indigenous consultation.

“It is clear that the federal government engaged in good faith negotiations, and that the NEB ultimately determined it has no jurisdiction over marine traffic. Now the goal posts are moving yet again.

“Today’s ruling makes it abundantly clear that the Federal Court of Appeal has no regard for the real-world economic impact this decision will have on ordinary Canadians’ lives and livelihoods. It is incredibly disappointing to see our judicial branch working against the best interests of the nation.

“We urge the federal government to explore every avenue possible to get the Trans Mountain expansion back on track, including but not limited to an immediate appeal to the Supreme Court, re-engagement of the consultation process, and potential legislation. This is especially important given that every Canadian citizen is now a shareholder in the Trans Mountain pipeline. We cannot allow this critically important project to die.

“This is not about electoral politics. This is just bad for Canadians. Period. Having said that, this decision further proves that the NDP’s idea of punishing Albertans with a carbon tax to buy social license has been a failure from day one.”

As I said on Twitter, Alberta is being horribly mistreated:

“The way Alberta is treated is horrendous. The federal government & provinces block every opportunity for Alberta to expand the oil industry, strangle Alberta economically, & deny Albertans prosperity, yet are glad to take billions from Alberta in transfer payments. Despicable.”

Which is why Alberta should seriously scrutinize their place in this abusive relationship. Mr. Kenney, please give Albertans the say on whether or not we wish to remain in this confederation.

Trudeau has to do this to placate his base which by the way has “deep pockets”.

Money trail leads to Soros and Saudi Arabia. There are others in England controlling our country including the queen via the Privy Council for example. “Our” Soros owned Smartmatic voting machines are hacked via PCAnywhere software on behalf of England.
