While Premier Rachel Notley was in Fort McMurray celebrating the ground breaking of the Willow Square Continuing Care Centre she reaffirmed her support for the Trans Mountain Pipeline.
“From fighting for pipelines to investing in continuing care centres like Willow Square, we are on the side of the working people of Fort McMurray. This community contributes greatly to the prosperity of Canadians from coast to coast to coast,” said Notley.
We’re going to be here to make sure this community has the schools, hospitals and care centres people need to live good lives, and we are going to keep fighting to get a new Canadian pipeline built.”
When asked about her thoughts about a pipeline summit in the region Notley was supportive and thought that Fort McMurray would be the perfect location.
“I would love to have John Horgan come up here and tour around Fort McMurray and learn what is actually real about this community as opposed to some of the narrative that has been inappropriately or mistakenly allowed to fester,” said Notley.
Notley went on to say that over the next three weeks, her governments focus is on getting the pipeline approved and that they would be working 24 hours a day to then meet at the table with the federal government and Kinder Morgan to see the project complete.
