Notley makes political plea for pipelines

  Notley makes political plea for pipelines Alberta Premier Rachel Notley issued warnings to all political parties to take off their partisan blinders or both the environment and Canada's energy industry will fail. Notley was in Ottawa on Tuesday as part of a national outreach effort to get more buy in for pipeline expansions in Canada. In a speech at the Economic Club of Canada and a roundtable discussion with The Canadian Press, she pleaded with political allies and foes alike to work with her.

The Prime Minister and Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr have left it up to the Alberta Premier to embark on speaking tours to tout the benefits of a pipeline that they gave the green light to. Notley must step into the spotlight or risk being thrown overboard at home.

Mansplaining roiling Alberta legislature

  Mansplaining roiling Alberta legislature EDMONTON - Gender and vocabulary are clashing on the floor of the Alberta legislature. Premier Rachel Notley, one day after accusing a male opponent of mansplaining, is calling out another for "hepeating." It came Wednesday during question period after United Conservative member Jason Nixon lauded Notley for taking his party's advice on the fight to get more pipelines built, but also suggested Notley needs to do more. Notley rejected that statement, then added: "Can I just introduce a new word into the legislature, the definition of which is as follows: Hepeat, when a person who might be a man repeats what you say and takes credit for it.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley will be in Toronto next week to try and convince any doubters of the benefits of the expansion of the TransMountain oil pipeline.

Why you might ask is she touting the benefits of a pipeline that won’t run anywhere near Toronto or anywhere in Ontario? The $7.4 billion project would ship diluted bitumen from Alberta through B.C. and eventually to the coast where it will be loaded on tankers bound for Asia.

The project has already been approved by the National Energy Board and the Trudeau government. Who else does Notley need to convince?

It seems she needs to convince people in Alberta that she is a true pipeline warrior. Not the kind that blocks pipelines — there are plenty of those in B.C. But a warrior who is willing to fight to the end for the interests of her province.

Because at home the new conservative amalgamation — the United Conservative Party — led by former Harper cabinet minister Jason Kenney taunts her as weak on the pipeline file whereas, if elected, a UCP government would goad Trudeau, who they see as too soft, to push the pipeline through, fight the B.C. government, which opposes the pipeline, and anyone else who stands in the way of what Alberta wants.

During his leadership campaign Kenney deftly played the angry Albertan and crowds of party members loved it. There was a Trumpian tone to his indignation, especially when he railed against provinces that take Alberta’s money in the form of equalization payments but refuse Alberta’s oil pipelines.

The fact that construction of the Kinder Morgan project, which was supposed to get underway in September, has been delayed by certain municipalities in B.C., who are reluctant to issue local permits, delights the UCP.

Maybe he’s united two parties, but he’s not someone that puts out policies that are bringing people together in general,” Singh said.

That dispute is awaiting a ruling by the National Energy Board. Kinder Morgan and Alberta are also awaiting the outcome of a judicial review of the project’s approval by the NEB.

All the more reason for Kenney to harangue Notley and her government for not having what it takes to get the job done. Never mind that fellow Conservative Stephen Harper wasn’t able to get the job done with the Northern Gateway and the Keystone XL pipelines.

But is a cross country tour — Notley will be speaking to mostly sympathetic business audiences in Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver — during which she reminds people about the economic benefits of a pipeline, really the best way to deal with this impasse?

Why should Alberta have to lead the charge when it was the federal government that gave the ultimate go-ahead for the project?

Notley has already stuck her neck out by putting in place a carbon tax just like Prime Minister Trudeau wanted, embarking on a plan to phase-out coal generated electricity by 2030, capping carbon emissions from the oilsands, and generally going along with the federal government’s efforts to curb carbon emissions and climate change.

It's no bromance, but Trudeau has found a way to charm Trump: Rosemary Barton

  It's no bromance, but Trudeau has found a way to charm Trump: Rosemary Barton It's no bromance, but Trudeau has found a way to charm Trump: Rosemary BartonOne year ago, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was confronted with an unexpected challenge: A  U.S. president more familiar to Canadians as a reality-TV star than for his public policy. A president so vastly different in his approach to politics that it was perhaps impossible to overcome.

Those are still politically controversial issues that she has to defend on an almost daily basis in Alberta.

Notley had hoped that adopting policies that tackle climate change would put the province in the good books of Canadians who oppose construction of new oil pipelines, or expansion of existing ones, on the grounds that any additional oil development exacerbates the greenhouse gas effect.

But opposition in B.C. is still fierce, especially in the lower mainland around Vancouver where people also fear spills from numerous large oil tankers will wreck their coastline.

Now it appears Alberta, and Notley, are being thrown overboard by the federal government because B.C. is a juicier political plum for the Liberals than Alberta.

So it’s not Justin Trudeau or Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr who are embarking on speaking tours to tout the benefits of a pipeline that they gave the green light to; they can be found hiding back stage.

Instead Notley must step into the spotlight or risk being thrown overboard at home.

It’s no secret that in general Albertans loathe Liberals because they see them as always betraying their province’s interests in favour of their own.

Will the fate of the TransMountain pipeline become the latest example?
