Watch: Scheer Speaks After Trudeau’s Trans Mountain Meeting

Scheer says “The responsibility for the Trans Mountain crisis lies squarely on Justin Trudeau’s shoulders.”

Shortly after Justin Trudeau’s meeting with Rachel Notley and John Horgan to discuss the Trans Mountain expansion crisis, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer addressed Canadians and the media.

Trudeau’s meeting failed to budge Horgan’s opposition to the project.

On Twitter, Scheer said “The responsibility for the Trans Mountain crisis lies squarely on Justin Trudeau’s shoulders. Canada’s Conservatives will always stand up for the hardworking men and women of our country’s resource sector.”

In the video below, watch Scheer’s remarks on the crisis:

Scheer notably pointed out that due to Trudeau’s policies, Canadian taxpayers could be on the hook for the project – if it even gets approved.

It’s a definitive rebuke to the argument Trudeau makes about his carbon tax making it easier to get projects approved. That argument now lies in ruins, as does energy investment in our country.
