Andrew Scheer takes a page out of Pierre Trudeau's playbook on pipeline policy - 2019-10-01
Generations of Alberta youngsters learned in the cradle the NEP was the Thing That Almost Ate Alberta.
Now that fossil fuels don't appear to be quite the Crown jewel they used to seem, however, the thought that some sort of national strategy to get the most out of our petroleum resources might be a good idea after all seems at last to have occurred to Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and his brain trust.
They have subtly rebranded the concept as the National Energy Corridor -- unavoidable, really, given the way Canadian Conservatives, particularly here in Alberta, have relentlessly excoriated the NEP and the Trudeaus for the past four decades. Almost no one will notice.
