|As 1,500 federal New Democrats arrived in Edmonton to debate if it’s a good idea to leave Alberta oil in the ground, Alberta’s NDP premier went on TV to express her support for new bitumen pipelines to tidewater.
“We can’t continue to support Canada’s economy, unless Canada supports us. That means one thing: building a modern and carefully regulated pipeline to tidewater,” Premier Rachel Notley said. “I can promise you this: I won’t let up. We must get to ‘yes’ on a pipeline.”
Notley made the comments on the eve of the federal NDP convention.
