Deputy Opposition Leader Lisa Raitt points out that Trudeau imposed standards on Canadian oil companies that he doesn’t even apply to foreign oil.
Midway through the process for the Energy East Pipeline, the Trudeau government made economically-destructive changes to the National Energy Board. Those changes imposed new hurdles onto Canadian Energy companies, but do not apply to foreign oil coming into Canadian ports.
As a result, the Energy East Pipeline is dead, and with it, thousands of Canadian jobs and billions of dollars of investment. Watch the video below as Deputy Opposition Leader Lisa Raitt slams the Trudeau government for the cancellation of the Energy East Pipeline.
