Poilievre promises to repeal bills C-69, C-48 in bid to encourage pipeline development
CTV News: 'Bill C-69 enacted the Impact Assessment Act which oversees the assessment of the “environmental, health, social and economic effects of designated projects with a view to preventing certain adverse effects and fostering sustainability.”
'Bill C-48 prohibits oil tankers carrying more than 12,500 metric tonnes of crude oil or persistent oil as cargo from “stopping, or unloading crude oil or persistent oil, at ports or marine installations located along British Columbia’s north coast from the northern tip of Vancouver Island to the Alaska border.”
'Poilievre also restated his promise to repeal the federal carbon tax, announced at a rally in Saskatoon Thursday.
'“Scrapping the carbon tax will reduce the cost of living and will mean small businesses will have more money to hire workers and provide affordable goods for their people,” Poilievre said Thursday.
'Poilievre’s leadership campaign is currently focusing on affordability for Canadians, with plans to attempt to lower the cost of living and curb inflation.'
