Kenney discusses carbon tax with Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe

United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney held a working dinner with Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe in Regina last night to discuss Saskatchewan’s leadership in fighting the federal Liberals’ carbon tax, and the “No More Pipelines Law”, Bill C-69.

“I would like to thank Premier Moe and his government for their strong leadership in standing up for the Western Canadian economy, and for taxpayers. Saskatchewan was the only province fighting the Trudeau carbon tax, but helped to create what is now a growing coalition including the governments of Ontario, New Brunswick, Manitoba, and hopefully Alberta after next spring’s election,” said Kenney.

“I was pleased to see that the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal has accepted the United Conservative Party’s application for intervenor status to support the Government of Saskatchewan’s judicial reference to the Court of Appeal challenging the constitutionality of Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax. We hope to be able to join this legal challenge as a government following the next election,“ said Kenney.

“I also thanked Premier Moe for his strong efforts in opposing the federal government’s proposed ‘No More Pipelines Law”, Bill C-69. This Bill would make it virtually impossible to get a future major pipeline project approved, and would be a huge victory for the foreign-funded special interests seeking to landlock Canadian energy.”

Finally, Premier Moe and Mr. Kenney discussed the importance of eliminating barriers to interprovincial trade and labour mobility.

“Our platform in next spring’s election will include a strong commitment to breaking down the barriers to free trade within Canada, which are costing Canadians tens of billions of dollars each year,” said Kenney. “I appreciate Premier Moe’s leadership in supporting greater free trade between provinces.”
