Mr. Speaker, at the oil and gas symposium held in Calgary, the main topic was the Prime Minister's unilateral five-year ban on drilling in the Arctic. The Northwest Territory premier, Bob McLeod, said that this arbitrary decision was taking away hope from northerners, the hope of making a long-term healthy living in the north.
The Liberals keep saying that they care about northerners, but their actions say otherwise. This is classic Liberal doubletalk.
How can the Liberals claim to support the north by killing the potential for these middle-class jobs?
