Ottawa, ON – Yesterday, following relentless pressure from Conservative MP’s, the Liberals announced they had approved two pipelines, including Enbridge Line 3, which goes through Gretna.

"Pipelines are the safest way to transport our natural resources to market” said Candice Bergen. "While I’m pleased to see that Enbridge and Kinder Morgan will be building pipelines and creating jobs – including in southern Manitoba, I am shocked at the political decision to reject the Northern Gateway pipeline.”

The Northern Gateway pipeline would have moved 525,000 barrels of oil per day from Bruderheim, Alberta to Kitimat, British Columbia.  It was estimated to create 3,000 jobs.

"Canadians want a principled approach to approving pipelines.  They are tired of the Liberals playing politics” concluded Bergen.
