Not when he says the oil companies don't represent the oil companies, but in his generally negative attitude towards the whole thing? Well, let's play Devil's advocate for a minute. What does Alberta get from the rest of the planet for imposing on itself an economy-wide carbon tax? We know what it wants: pipelines West and South so it can sell its oil to Asia. Nobody really cares about Energy East.
But Keystone is dead. So we're down to Northern Gateway and Transmountain. Does the plan buy them either? Well, the Trudeau government is going to formally ban oil tankers along B.C.'s North coast, so Northern Gateway is still dead. What about Transmountain? Well, a lot of the opposition to this line has nothing to with climate change, and of course there is a faction in the enviro community who would like the oil-sands shut down regardless of any commitments to better behavior the province and the oil companies might make. They won't be swayed. So maybe Transmountain goes through, or maybe not, but even if so it will be years down the line and billions spent along the proposed route to grease the skids before its open. And who knows whether the market will need it by then.
And that's the only prize Alberta gets...potentially...from the whole endeavor. So: good for the planet, good for Canada, but arguably not so great for Alberta.
