Notley, Trudeau throttling Alberta’s energy sector
Tax increase, suffocating regulations and veto powers granted by courts to aboriginal and environmental groups make it extremely difficult for Alberta to return to a competitive business environment.
Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau have throttled the energy sector, the engine of the Canadian economy by regulating it to death.
The latest example is the Trans Mountain pipeline “Expansion” (one pipeline laid beside an existing pipeline) stopped by a court decision after five years of trying to comply with government regulations and consulting with B.C. Indigenous groups. Trudeau killed the Northern Gateway and Energy East pipelines by expanding regulation to pander to Montreal and Quebec politicians.
Fortunately, for us Albertans own our resources, and we can elect a government that will be encourage investment by lowering taxes and deregulating and open this province up to business again. RON HIERATH LETHBRIDGE
