Lakeland M.P. Says More Needs To be Done To Build Pipelines

Lakeland M.P. and Conservative Shadow Minister of Natural Resources, Shannon Stubbs, says the federal government needs to do more to get pipelines built

Economists with Scotiabank say a lack of pipelines and massive discounts for Canadian heavy oil could cost the economy $15.6 billion this year, or three-fourths of a point from the country's G.D.P.

Conservative Shadow Minister of Natural Resources Shannon Stubbs says it's the latest in a number of reports over the past couple years that emphasizes the importance of increasing pipeline capacity and building new pipelines,

In the report, Scotiabank called the delay of new export pipelines and the large discounts that it has triggered "a self-inflicted wound."
