Get Trans Mountain Pipeline Built
As the safest, most efficient, and most sustainable method of getting our oil to world markets, pipelines are critical to Saskatchewan and Canada's energy sector.
The NDP continues to oppose construction of pipelines across Canada to get our resources to our customers around the world.
Every year, our economy loses billions because we are not able to get our oil to market where it can sell for the world price, so we have to sell out oil at a discount. This doesn't just cost energy producers; it means taxpayers also lose hundreds of millions on additional taxes and royalties that could be going toward building more roads, schools, and hospitals.
The Trudeau government is spending $4.5 billion to buy Kinder Morgan's assets in Canada, including the current Trans Mountain pipeline, and the expansion project.
We really hope this works. However, we need to keep up the pressure to ensure the pipeline actually gets built.
Watch Premier Scott Moe's response to the federal government's announcement:
The Trudeau government now needs to ensure this pipeline built, and the NDP needs to stop opposing construction of pipelines in Canada. Billions of dollars to Saskatchewan's economy and thousands of jobs across our nation depend on it.
