They don’t like to say it out loud, but the NDP have some major allies in the anti-pipeline movement. 

In power, they made Tzeporah Berman a star appointee to be a chief advisor on the oilsands.

Berman spent a lifetime campaigning against pipelines, and since leaving her taxpayer funded role under the NDP government has continued her relentless, foreign-funded, fight against Canadian pipelines since.

Emma Jackson. She’s a top anti-pipeline activist here in Alberta. She even blocked oil tankers in Vancouver in 2018. 

Several NDP MLAs had no problem showing up to an organizer from her, including former NDP cabinet ministers Sarah Hoffman and David Eggen.

The Alberta Federation of Labour. In the NDP’s constitution, they have protected status on their Provincial Council. Their President Gil McGowan has led the charge against pretty much every new major pipeline proposed for over a decade.

This is just scratching the surface of the NDP’s anti-pipeline activism.

If you ever wonder why they hesitated to give their full support to pipelines like Northern Gateway, Energy East, and Keystone XL, this is why. They’re fearful of upsetting their coalition of fringe anti-pipeline activists. They’d rather keep them happy than have the backs of the hundreds of thousands of Albertans who rely on our energy sector every day.
