Senator Black recently spoke to 660 News about “a crucial moment” for Alberta as the province works to bring its energy products to new markets.
“We in Alberta must have market access, east, west, north, and south to get our product to tide water,” he told 660News. “This matters, we can’t have hospitals, schools, roads and bridges unless we have revenue, we need to get it out.”
In regard to TransCanada’s proposed pipeline to New Brunswick, he said, “Everybody along the route has to be on side here, including Québec, but you know it’s going to take leadership first and foremost and Premiers Redford and Alward are showing that.”
