THREAD (1/10) During last night’s debate, NDP leader Rachel Notley again denied any responsibility for the failure of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway, and claimed the Federal Court of Appeal is why the pipeline didn’t go ahead.

This is all false. Here are the facts #ableg #abvote
(2/10) Rachel Notley opposed the Northern Gateway pipeline. She specifically told the Calgary Herald’s editorial board in April 2015 that she wouldn’t fight for it, saying "I don't think there's any point to it." This was well before the FCA decision: calgaryherald.com/news/politics/…
(3/10) Justin Trudeau had already committed to scrapping the project. In 2014, on the day the former federal Conservative government approved the project, he announced that he’d stop the 525,000 barrel per day pipeline:
(4/10) The Federal Court of Appeal did not stop the project. The June 2016 decision said that consultations needed to be redone, “a matter that, if well-organized and well-executed, need not take long.” decisions.fca-caf.gc.ca/fca-caf/decisi…
(5/10) Under questioning in the Legislature by Jason Kenney, NDP leader Rachel Notley admitted that her government only asked the Trudeau Liberal government for approval of one (singular) coastal pipeline project: assembly.ab.ca/ISYS/LADDAR_fi…
(6/10) Even Rachel Notley’s handpicked Energy Minister, Marg McCuaig-Boyd said that Northern Gateway is “one we haven’t supported.” This too was before the Federal Court of Appeal decision. theglobeandmail.com/news/alberta/a…
(7/10) NDP leader Rachel Notley was in Ottawa, meeting with Justin Trudeau on the day that he announced his decision to veto the Northern Gateway pipeline, November 29, 2016. She did not speak out after the decision to cancel Northern Gateway was announced pm.gc.ca/eng/photo-gall…
(8/10) The Trudeau Liberal government scrapped the Northern Gateway pipeline through a Cabinet decision. This was a political decision, not a court decision. gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2016/…
(9/10) According to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (@OilGasCanada) last November, “If Northern Gateway had come on as planned, we wouldn't be in this situation,” referring to the oil price differential situation theglobeandmail.com/business/indus…
(10/10) The bottom line? Alberta needed a government that would fight for this much-needed pipeline project. Instead, Alberta had an NDP government that let the Trudeau Liberal government scrap the project with no opposition.
