Scheer responded “Today was a great day for hard-working Canadians across the country. The approval of Keystone will lead to new access to U.S. markets, better prices for Canadian energy, and new jobs across the country. Regina’s own Evraz Steel has been involved in this project. That is why it is so enraging to see the NDP calling for its cancellation. They are once again selling out Canadian workers.

I’ve noticed with some bewilderment that readers are flocking in droves to read this report about a leak on the Keystone pipeline. At last count, nearly 200,000 of you had read it for the first time over the past week, believing it to be true.

And it was — except that it happened last year — April 2016.

My article from last year quoted a regulatory official who said that a landowner was the one who reported the leak. It wasn’t immediately clear whether TransCanada’s leak detection system was working.

Pipeline engineers say that up to two per cent of the volume of oil flowing on a pipeline can leak without being detected.

So on a pipeline that is shipping 500,000 barrels a day, this could mean up to 10,000 barrels a day are leaking without being detected by the existing technology

they better just damn well be carefull with that stuff

Why is the political right so prone to a conspiracy theory view of the world? C'mon Walter, you've got CNN and Fox clearly on your side in the U.S., the National Post clearly on your side in Canada, what do you want, that nobody should ever disagree with you?

He'll do fine.

They will try to contrast him with Trudeau. How bad the Conservative policies will be. Meh. Another day in the media.

He's a nice man, so it will have to be his policies. They already started on CBC by calling him Harper lite to his face.

He handled it well. Brushed it off.

I would say that "past Speaker of the House" is a far better credential and proof of experience than "dad was PM"

He's Roman Catholic, and the name suggests German ancestry.

Maybe I take people at face value too much, but what I saw on the T.V. for two minutes looked good to me!

Better than being misinformed. Clinton News is an anti-Clinton conspiracy theory junk site.

What the cons don't get is that the last election moved Canada farther to the left. Most Canadians want progressive social policies, not the same old BS about "lower taxes and balancing the budget" a catch phrase that usually means bigger tax breaks for the wealthy and erosion of social services. In addition, Scheer got a lot of support from the Conservative Party equivalent of the GOP, you know, the anti-abortion homophobic, anti-immigration crowd. Those policies are not only divisive, but most Canadians are hostile to them. Good luck to any Harper clone who tries to push them.

It's a bitch when people want to "have their cake and eat it too"! I've found that many of the people who want more services DON'T want taxes increased. You just can't have it both ways, it won't work. I personally doubt if more taxes for more services is viable. I'd be willing to pay more taxes for one or two things, but services aren't one of them. Raising the living standards of the bottom 5% is. I also believe in a minimum standard for medical services- no one should be suffering in excruciating pain in 2015.

I must agree with you on a couple of points. Low taxes area always a bit deceiving in that it usually means the average citizen simply has to pay for more services out of pocket. A good example in a country like the UK which has higher taxes but a health care system that blows Canada's out of the water.

BC has a carbon tax, 7% PST, hydro electricity but you still have to pay $75 a month for health insurance.

BTW Canadian health care is Provincial, UK is Federal.

They also have the Globe and Mail. In the last election they endorsed the Conservatives but not Stephen Harper and with have the Conservatives without Stephen Harper.

Wow, after that insult what a man he is eh?

Harper was PM for ten years and calling him Harper lite is an insult?
