Liberal Statement on the Conclusion of the Council of the Federation Meeting

Posted on July 27, 2012

OTTAWA – Liberal Energy and Natural Resources critic David McGuinty made the following statement today regarding the future of Canada’s energy strategy on the conclusion of the Council of the Federation meeting:

“The sustainable development of our natural resources is important to Canada, for the health of our environment and the health of our economy. Large-scale developments, like the Keystone XL pipeline, the oil sands and the Northern Gateway proposal, must adhere to the most stringent environmental assessment and review.

This Conservative government has eroded the federal role in monitoring these developments and has shown no interest in engaging with the provinces. Only the federal government can convene a First Ministers Meeting to coordinate a national, coherent energy strategy. The responsibility for the future of Canada’s resource development and energy sector rests solely on their shoulders.”
