Liberal Government Refuses to Stand Up for Jobs and Energy Security | May 5, 2022

Once again, a court challenge is threatening Enbridge Line 5 along with thousands of Canadian jobs and our energy security.

If Line 5 is shut down it will have devastating effects in Canada, putting more than 30,0000 jobs at risk across Ontario and Quebec, and will result in significant fuel shortages and even higher fuel prices.

The only thing that has changed since the last threat to Line 5 is the Prime Minister’s deal with the NDP. Allowing the shutdown of Line 5 and creating a serious energy crisis at home is too high a price to pay for the NDP’s continued support for the NDP-Liberal coalition deal.
Conservatives are calling on the Liberal government to act now to fight for Canada in the court challenge, invoke the Transit Pipelines Treaty, and ensure the economic and energy security of Canadians are protected.
