Conservative Candidate, Rob Morrison, on Energy

July 24, 2019

There are many families in Kootenay-Columbia who depend on our energy sector and the people working in it have faced tough times under this Liberal government...

Before Justin Trudeau became Prime Minister, we had three private companies willing to invest more than $30 billion to build three, nation-building projects that would have created tens of thousands of jobs and generated billions in economic activity.

Those companies continue to invest in pipelines elsewhere in the world, just not in Canada.

That’s why Conservatives have come up with a six-point action plan that will strike down the barriers created Justin Trudeau and Wayne Stetski, and get pipelines built:

  1. Cancel the carbon tax
  2. Repeal Bill C-69, the No-More-Pipelines Bill
  3. End the B.C. shipping ban
  4. Establish timelines for approvals
  5. Eliminate foreign interference in the approvals process
  6. Invoke federal jurisdiction when necessary

A National Energy Corridor would move Canadian oil, gas, electricity, telecommunications, and potentially anything else that runs along the ground, across the country. This is crucial for our ability to create wealth, prosperity, and opportunity for all Canadians, including for families right here in our riding.

We have had these legacy projects before and a Conservative government, with Rob Morrison representing Kootenay-Columbia, will spearhead the effort to get them done again.
