Federal, provincial NDP branches walk fine line on carbon pricing
The federal and Alberta NDP offer differing reactions to the Liberals' carbon pricing plan. And their next co-ordination challenge could be the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says she won't offer support for the federal government's new carbon pricing plan unless a new pipeline is built to get the province's oil to tidewater, such as Kinder Morgan's controversial TransMountain line that is opposed by B.C. NDP MP Kennedy Stewart. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
