Statement from Rachel Notley, Leader of Alberta's Official NDP Opposition

“When the B.C. government threatened to block our oil, we used the wine ban to force them to court. Then we worked hard to talk directly to British Columbians about the importance of Canada’s energy industry and today, the majority are in support of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. The case for the pipeline just got stronger and investor certainty in Alberta along with it.

“Turns out BC's toolbox was more Fisher Price than DeWalt. Alberta’s oil sands have helped build this country and today is a good day for people with toolboxes all across Canada.”
