WATCH: MP Shannon Stubbs Says Trudeau “Should Be Ashamed Of His Utter Failure To Champion” Trans Mountain Expansion

Emergency debate in the House of Commons over the Trans Mountain crisis gets heated.

The emergency debate in the House of Commons over the Trans Mountain crisis (called for by Conservative MP Shannon Stubbs) became quite heated.

Here are a few clips demonstrating the messages being put forth by the Conservatives, Liberals, and NDP:

MP Stubbs said Trudeau “should be ashamed by his utter failure to champion” the Trans Mountain pipeline, noting Trudeau’s long history of inaction on the issue.

Stubbs didn’t hold back in her denunciation of Trudeau:

Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr talked about federal authority – despite the fact that the Trudeau government has been incredibly weak in asserting the legal authority they already possess:

Meanwhile, the NDP (despite Jagmeet Singh being the invisible man on the issue), seemed to side more with B.C. NDP Premier Hogan, instead of the NDP Premier in Alberta.

A key point to note regarding the emergency debate is the fact that the Conservatives had called for such a debate months ago, before the crisis reached critical levels.

That call was not supported by the Liberal Speaker of the House, and Trudeau spent two more months doing nothing to support the project while it came closer and closer to collapse.

Now, we are in a situation where – even if it gets approved – it could cost billions of taxpayer dollars, something that was once unthinkable for a private sector project, and another sign of how badly the Trudeau government is breaking Canada’s energy industry.
