A Pipeline Prime Minister?
Trudeau’s decision on the TMX pipeline and tanker project could have a big impact on his re-election campaign. I’ve donated to the Liberal party in past elections, in part because they pledged to make climate action a priority. I can’t support a party that would pour tax dollars into pipelines and tankers, in the middle of a climate emergency. I know I am not alone in this view.
Trudeau would be wise to consider whether voters will back a “Pipeline Prime Minister” in a climate election. The Liberals would be wise not to let Jason Kenney and his Conservative Party in Alberta hold a gun to their heads. They are already going to vote Conservative so do the right thing for Canada and the world.
