United Conservative leader Jason Kenney is threatening to “turn off taps” to B.C. if elected as Alberta’s premier.
During a campaign stop in “gas city,” Medicine Hat, Kenney renewed a call for B.C. to end opposition to Alberta pipelines. British Columbians can expect to continue to pay soaring prices for gasoline if their Premier John Horgan’s NDP government continues to obstruct pipeline construction, said Kenney.
“In recent days, lower mainland BC has been paying through the nose for gasoline…. Unless John Horgan ends his unconstitutional fight against Alberta energy exports, the people of BC will need to get used to paying well over $1.70/L for gas as the result of NDP anti-pipeline obstructionism.”
Kenney announced that a United Conservative government would proclaim Bill 12, the ‘Turn off the Taps’ law, on its first day in office.
