Welcome to the club Rachel...

Hours after a stunning Federal Court of Appeal decision in which Ottawa’s approval of the contentious Trans Mountain pipeline expansion was overturned, Premier Rachel Notley addressed Albertans about the latest hurdle to come before the project and dropped a political bombshell of her own.

“Signing on to the federal climate plan can’t happen without the Trans Mountain pipeline,” she told reporters at a new conference Thursday evening. “Today I’m announcing that with the Trans Mountain halted and the work on it halted, until the federal government gets its act together, Alberta is pulling out of the federal climate plan and let’s be clear, without Alberta, that plan isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.”

Notley said Alberta signing onto the plan was always contingent on the Trans Mountain pipeline project going forward.

Absolutely. Now, all that's left is for Rachel to put on her big-girl panties and start putting some levies on the existing oil going through TMPL

I was under the impression that Anacortes was supplied by TMPL

AV is made by BP at Cherry Point in Blaine

Parkland cant keep up nowhere near what is posted below.

Airlines operating at YVR get most of their jet fuel from a 48-year-old pipeline owned by Kinder Morgan, but only about 40% of the jet fuel moving through that pipeline comes from the former Chevron refinery, which is now owned by Parkland Fuel Corp. (TSX:PKI). The rest comes by barge from the Cherry Point Refinery in Washington state, and by tanker truck

You Go Rachel. The majority of us here in the Heartland have supported Premier Notley and the people of Alberta during this long drawn out battle and are just as angered and pissed off by the court's decision especially in light of the fact that The Great Enabler and his party of virtue-signalling dolts had 3 years to fix the flaws but were far too busy trying to shove their gender-based policies down other countries throats. They ignored the problems at their peril and now will have to own this - as they should.

I'd say Rachel had her 'big girl panties' firmly in place when she addressed the media yesterday, Cap. I do agree she now needs to impose the levies and the sooner the better.

NU has already told him to stick it where the sun don't shine. They came up with a viable emissions reduction program that did not require carbon taxation. PM Groper turned his nose up at it. Now, it seems to me that someone sooooo concerned about the climate wouldn't care about carbon taxation as long as the emissions reduction plan was workable.

SK NDP is happy. What exactly is are NDP philosophies across the board? It's bloody confusing.

It goes beyond AB.

BC itself can't get its oil to Vancouver by pipe.

We're all looking forward to the AB levies on BC oil that ought to drive-up a liter of fuel to, say, $3.00


.... Hopefully your tesla gets delivered before that happens

Judging from what I heard Rachel say yesterday, Alberta is far from holding its breath you silly inconsequential little twit. Isn't it grand seeing the feds climate change policies go up in smoke as province after province withdraws.

I actually stood up and cheered when Rachel announced her province was withdrawing, pete. As she so aptly put it, without AB, the agreement isn't worth the paper it is written on. Would not be the least bit surprised to see the remaining provinces/territories, in light of AB's withdrawal, also follow suit.

No point in that, DS.........no different than banging your head against a brick wall because those 'internet experts' heads are just as thick - clogged as they are with all the Fake News they continually gobble up.

Science means nothing. After the glyosphate fiasco, moonbats have unwittingly forced paraquat into play.

Smoke that stupid hippies.

Once BC puts some emission controls on their forest fires we will update our residential chimneys that are soot-free as it is.
