Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is accusing Conservatives of being intellectually dishonest in their claims his government’s policies led to the cancellation of the Energy East pipeline.
Trudeau posted on Facebook that the Tories’ “reflexive stoking of regional tensions is a political dead end.”
Calgary Conservative M-P Michelle Rempel says she’s watched the Trudeau government go the wall for Bombardier, but has seen very little focus on her province, which she says has been suffering for two years.

Party Leader Andrew Scheer posted on Facebook that Energy East was a “nation-building project” and disputed Trudeau’s claim the pipeline was cancelled for business reasons.
Premier Brad Wall, Regina Mayor Michael Fougere and Saskatchewan’s environment minister Dustin Duncan have all voiced their displeasure with the decision, saying it is now not possible for Canada to be energy independent.
