Remember the years of NDP anti-pipeline activism?
In the 2015 election, Rachel Notley said she’d throw in the towel on Northern Gateway Pipeline and the Keystone XL pipeline. After getting elected, that’s exactly what she did.
She let Justin Trudeau cancel Northern Gateway without complaint. And when the Liberals started changing the rules on Energy East, forcing the company to pull out, Rachel Notley and the NDP barely whispered their opposition.
Since being dumped into opposition by Alberta voters, Rachel Notley then helped campaign for the federal leave-it-in-the-ground, no-pipelines-ever, NDP.
And now Rachel Notley is trying to suggest conservatives are killing the Energy East pipeline!
Because of the Federal Liberal government – and an NDP government in Alberta that stood idly by – TC Energy took Energy East off the table in 2017.— Jason Kenney (@jkenney) September 15, 2020

Despite Trudeau and Rachel Notley’s failure on Energy East, United Conservatives and Jason Kenney have not given up the dream of a west to east pipeline for Canada.
We’re getting pipelines built, with progress being made on Trans Mountain.
We stepped out so shovels are in the ground for the Keystone XL pipeline.
Jobs. Economy. Pipelines.
That’s the promise United Conservatives made to Albertans and we’re not losing focus.
