Trudeau Liberals face defining choices on energy: but they might not be the ones you think
The government must first and foremost address policy gaps on climate, indigenous issues and cumulative effects. It must also identify where energy sits in its economic development and innovation agenda. It is true the Trudeau government faces defining choices on energy—let’s hope they focus on the right ones.
The Trudeau Liberals have some mandate-defining choices to make on energy, not the least of which is whether they will give the green light to the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion to carry crude oil from Alberta’s oilsands to Burnaby and whether they will approve the Pacific NorthWest liquefied natural gas (LNG) export project in northwestern British Columbia, writes Monica Gattinger.The Hill Times photograph by Sam Garcia
