Legault Congratulates Jason Kenney But Says Quebec Won't Accept A New Oil Pipeline

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 17 Apr, 2019

    QUEBEC — Premier Francois Legault is congratulating Jason Kenney on his electoral victory in Alberta while reminding the incoming premier that Quebec's position on oil pipelines hasn't changed.


    Legault says all parties in Quebec's legislature oppose any new oil pipelines.


    He says there is no social acceptability in the province for a new pipeline carrying oil from Western Canada through Quebec.


    The premier says the province already receives more than half its oil from Western Canada and is open to a proposed natural gas pipeline coming from Alberta.


    Kenney told supporters Tuesday night after his United Conservatives won a majority government that Alberta's economy is desperate for a pipeline that can carry oil to international markets.


    Speaking in French, Kenney said his province needs pipelines for the prosperity of all Canadians.


    Legault called Kenney's use of French an elegant gesture.


    In his victory speech, Kenney praised the Legault government's commitment to reducing Quebec’s dependence on equalization transfers.


    Legault blames the previous Liberal government for making the province more dependent than ever on equalization.
