Two NDP MPs took a trip to Washington DC to tell American lawmakers that they’re personally opposed to expanded oilsands development, and the Keystone XL pipeline.
Nickel Belt MP Claude Gravelle says that they were welcomed by the politicians in DC, and he says they were surprised to hear opposition to the project.
He says that re-routing the pipeline away from a Nebraska aquifer doesn’t change his opinion of the project, because it doesn’t address concerns about climate change.
He adds that Premier Alison Redford shouldn’t be so quick to lobby for the project, because it would send away jobs.
Gravelle is the federal critic for natural resources.
