Mr. Speaker, the truth is that Liberals are lobbying Liberals and pushing petitions to shut down the oil sands and to kill Canadian jobs. Liberal MPs selectively quote the joint panel report. What they do not say is that Teck Frontier is “not expected to threaten the sustainability” of local ecosystems or wildlife populations and that rejecting Teck could result “in exporting emissions to other jurisdictions with higher emissions intensity.”
The reality is that Teck surpassed every measure. Last week, the finance minister even said that there was no barrier to a timely decision.
Will the Liberals stop using Teck Frontier as a cynical bargaining chip and approve it on its merit?
