a YES to TMX.
In an important milestone for the country, the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project received federal government approval for a second time. TMX is a critical project for Canada’s economic future. It means thousands of good jobs for Canadians, billions in tax revenue for health and education, and opening new markets for one of Canada’s greatest assets.
Alberta’s Premier Kenney and Energy Minister Savage respond to TMX decision
LET’S GET IT BUILT.
This is just the beginning. While we welcome this decision by the federal government, approval is not completion. TMX has been through unprecedented levels of consultation and review over several years. The real test begins once we see shovels in the ground and real progress made. And success will only be measured once the oil starts flowing.
THERE’S STILL WORK TO DO.
The vast majority of Canadians support the TMX project. So do the majority of British Columbians, including First Nations. In spite of the growing support, the Premier of British Columbia continues to oppose it. We cannot accept any more obstructions to this vital national project. We need to continue our fight until the pipeline is built.
There is much more work ahead – but Canadians are up to the task.
THE FIGHT IS FAR FROM OVER.
We know that we can’t hang Canada’s economic future on a single pipeline. We need to keep fighting for our energy industry. That means advocating for new pipelines and strengthening our opposition to Bill C-48, the ban on Alberta oil exports off the northwest coast, and to Bill C-69, the deeply flawed, anti-investment legislation that threatens national unity.
