FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – STATEMENT ON THOMAS MULCAIR`S ATTACK ON CANADA`S NATIONAL INTERESTS & OPPOSITION TO KEYSTONE XL
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 14th, 2013
Today, Saskatchewan Conservative Caucus issued the following statement on the growing criticism from Canadian and Saskatchewan leaders on Thomas Mulcair’s attack on Canada’s national interests and opposition to Keystone XL:
“Our Conservative Government is focussed on creating jobs, growth and long-term prosperity for Canadians. The Keystone XL Pipeline will create thousands of well paying jobs in both countries and is in Canada’s national interest.
“While Saskatchewan’s Conservative Caucus has been strongly supportive of this job creating project, Mulcair’s NDP has yet again demonstrated that they will travel abroad to talk down Canada and put narrow political interests ahead of job creation and economic growth in Saskatchewan.
“Mulcair’s NDP has come out squarely against resource development, calling it a ‘disease’. As a result, Mulcair’s NDP is off-side with an important sector of Saskatchewan’s economy and future prosperity. Mulcair is becoming increasingly isolated by opposing the Keystone project, with even Saskatchewan NDP Leader Cam Broten, albeit reluctantly joining the chorus of Canadians who support job creation in Saskatchewan. Mulcair’s NDP is actively undermining Canada’s interests abroad through his vocal opposition to the creation of Canadian jobs, trade and responsible resource development.
“While our Conservative Caucus is making the case for this job creating project and standing-up for Saskatchewan’s economy and workers, the Mulcair NDP continues to undermine our economy and national interests here in Saskatchewan and abroad.”
