OTTAWA - NDP leader Jagmeet Singh says that todayâ€™s announcement on the Kinder Morgan pipeline is a bad deal for Canada and demonstrates a failure of leadership.
"Giving $4.5 billion to a Texas oil company demonstrates that Prime Minister Trudeau has no vision for the future," said Singh.
Singh pointed out that the Prime Minister is spending $4.5 billion to create what Kinder Morgan said would mean fewer than 3000 jobs.
"That's almost $1.8 million per job â€“ jobs that are short term and wonâ€™t be there for the next generation," said Singh. "Climate change leaders donâ€™t spend $4.5 billion dollars on pipelines â€“ we need a government with a vision that takes our future seriously."
The NDP is calling on the Prime Minister to invest in jobs that will still be there for the next generation â€“ clean energy jobs in Alberta and in communities across the country.
