first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley wants everyone to mark her words: the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion will go ahead to deliver her province’s oil to the West Coast and jobs to British Columbia.Notley says she doesn’t believe it makes much difference who is running B.C., because the federal government has already approved the Kinder Morgan (TSX:KML) project.She says the pipeline is in the best interests of Albertans and all Canadians — but adds it’s especially important to B.C. because the province’s growth can’t just be fuelled by rising house prices in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.She says B.C. needs stronger economic growth and the jobs that the pipeline will bring to the province’s interior.The pipeline’s future has been questioned given an agreement between B.C.’s New Democrats and Greens, which could lead to an NDP minority government.Both parties have voiced opposition to the project.Notley says governments that care about working people put good jobs front and centre.last_img
