While thousands of workers wait to start working on the Kinder Morgan pipeline, their wallets are draining.
Their wallets are draining because there’s a political battle between Alberta and British Columbia NDP premieres.
But it’s not only the two immature rookie provincial leaders, Justin Trudeau is also to blame.
Federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh says Trudeau needs to step in and make the decisions.
“The frame of saying it’s a concern between two provinces is not the right frame,” Singh said.
“This is the responsibility of the federal government — this is why we have a federal government in the first place, to make decisions on these type of matters.”
Most pipeline jobs are just finishing up in Alberta, and in the meantime there’s no new pipeline jobs coming up, we are waiting for political decisions to be made by the rookies, Rachel Notley, John Horgan and Justin Trudeau.
All have a history of being anti-pipeline and anti-Alberta, but for at least the next 20 years Canada needs Alberta oil, so it’s time to give the go on Kinder Morgan and stop being immature about it.
