I have come to the conclusion that this decision is too important to leave in the hands of short-sighted federal, provincial and municipal politicians. Nor do I want to leave it to the oil industry or other lobbyist or environmental groups to decide. I want the ultimate decision to be made by the people of Canada, all the people, every single one.

Why Canada Needs Both Windmills And Pipelines

Katrina Marsh | Posted 04.28.2016 | Canada Politics
Katrina Marsh

There are many uses for fossil fuels, including oil, where the alternatives are nowhere near as advanced as wind turbines, solar panels or electric cars. Stopping pipelines in Canada does not speed up the development of alternatives to oil. It doesn't slow growing oil demand in emerging economies, where most of the growth in energy demand will come from in the future.

The latest and most obvious example of this is the party's recent opposition day motion on the Energy East pipeline.
