The interim leader of the federal conservatives Rona Ambrose made a stop in Regina Tuesday.
She toured the Evraz North America Facility where workers are constructing pipeline’s for potential projects in the future.
After the tour, Ambrose called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to ensure the work being done is actually going to come to fruition.
“I came away thinking that when I talk about Mr. Trudeau and uncertainty around pipelines, this is really where it hits home. The people that work here make money off of building steel for pipelines. This is what they need to do to feed their families, these are really good, high paying jobs in this region and the uncertainty around pipeline approvals that Justin Trudeau has thrown into the mix is a real concern.”
Ambrose called on Trudeau to remove the moratorium on the West Coast for the Gateway Pipeline and use his influence with U.S. President Barack Obama to push through the Keystone Pipeline south of the border and to work to make Energy East a go.
