When it comes to last week’s cancellation of the Energy East pipeline project, Saskatchewan’s Premier says the economy and lower commodity prices are not the only blame.
Brad Wall says if low oil prices and a weak economy were to blame companies would not be taking business else where.
He says he has spoken with Saskatchewan’s major conventional players who say Canadian investment has dried up for our own in the energy sector in part because of regulatory risk.
Saskatchewan’s Premier says western Canadians need to use “strong language” when holding the federal government accountably for the cancellation of the pipeline.
Energy East would have allowed eastern Canada to stop importing oil, from countries with little to no environmental or human rights laws, making the country energy independent.
