Yesterday, we compared and contrasted what the United Conservative Party government used to say about the former NDP government's carbon tax with reality. Viz., it was destroying the economy (UCP), versus, it effectively had no negative impact on the Alberta economy (the government's own officials).

Today, let's take a peek at Bill C-69, the Impact Assessment Act, which Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and other members of his government have repeatedly called "the No-More Pipelines Bill."

As in the case of the ginned-up brouhaha over the Notley government's painless but poorly sold carbon levy, Kenney's overheated rhetoric about the federal Liberals' environmental assessment bill that was finally passed by the Senate last spring and thereafter was constantly assailed in the lead-up to the federal election in October turns out also to have been vastly exaggerated.
