Mr. Speaker, in reality, the Liberals killed the only new options for exports to the Asia-Pacific and to Europe. They drove away more than $100 billion in energy projects, the worst loss in more than seven decades. Over 100,000 Canadians lost their jobs.
The pipelines and discount prices harm other sectors in all provinces. ATB's chief economist says, “This is a national problem”, and, “We could well see layoffs in early 2019 and it could spawn yet another—if not a recession—at least another slowdown for the Canadian economy”.
Other than more empty words, what will the minister actually do to fix the crisis the Liberals caused?
