Tory MP Pierre Paul-Hus argued during a news conference Monday that it was time to stop being “hypocritical” on the issue of using petroleum and that party leader Andrew Scheer’s idea to sit down again with TransCanada, Energy East’s promoter, is aimed at making Canada self-sufficient on energy.
“History is unfolding before our eyes,” said Haisla Nation chief councillor Crystal Smith of the single largest private-sector infrastructure project in Canadian history.
Scheer said that’s the message he delivered to Modi on Tuesday during their meeting in New Delhi, which was part of the Opposition leader’s week-long trip to forge economic links and deepen trade with the country.
The Energy East line, it is claimed, would allow Canadian crude to be refined in Canada – a nation-building project of epic scale, analogous to Sir John A. Macdonald’s forging of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Our Canada is in danger. And increasingly so. While various politicians assure us all is well with the true north, it isn’t. I hear it on the phone lines on my radio program weekly from folks in five provinces. It’s not just a quick visceral burn either. The frustration and anger are deeply seated.
