Scheer Calls For National Corridor For Pipelines, End To Foreign Oil Imports

“With a single corridor, we could minimize environmental impacts, lower the costs of environmental assessments, increase certainty for investors, and, most importantly, get these critical projects done,” says Scheer.

In a speech outlining his vision for Canada’s economy, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer called for the creation of a national energy corridor to facilitate pipeline and power-line construction.

Said Scheer, “With a single corridor, we could minimize environmental impacts, lower the costs of environmental assessments, increase certainty for investors, and, most importantly, get these critical projects done.”

Scheer also called for an end to foreign oil imports by 2030.

He said foreign oil supports “regimes that abuse human rights and take virtually no steps to protect the environment.”

He added, “An energy independent Canada would be a Canada firing on all cylinders — across all sectors and regions. If the United States can do it, so can we.”

Those are good ideas from Scheer, and demonstrate his willingness to take a common-sense approach to Canadian energy – a huge contrast from Trudeau’s anti-Canadian oil, pro-foreign oil agenda.

With the Conservatives being the only party with any chance of defeating the dangerous Trudeau government, the election is shaping up as a clear choice between supporting Canadian energy, or supporting foreign energy.

It is time to put an end to Saudi’s strangle hold on the corrupt Trudeau Govt and start to look after canada’s interests FIRST

Hey, thats nationalism !

Excellent excellent excellent ideas. This would reduce costs to consumers dramatically. The Energy East project alone id 2.9 trillion alone in value added. This would allow us to export at RETAIL prices not raw material prices. The economic impact would be magnificent

It would enable Canada to support Europe and help them get away from their reliance on Russian, Venezuelan and Saudi / Iran oil and natural gas.

Of course many of us, including most conservatives, will not live to see the end of foreign oil. The seven year olds who will be voting by then will all be brainwashed Liberals.

A national corridor is a good idea.
I bet Quebec will fight it tooth and nail.
