'Time adults took over'

As the trade war between B.C. and Alberta continues, the
BC Conservatives say it's time for politicians to stop wrecking the provinces' economy with high taxation, attacks on the resource sector, and a ridiculous trade war with another province.

"The BC NDP has barely been elected and yet they've already closed down mine projects, announced the destruction of the cannabis growing industry, and are planning on raising taxes even further on gas," said Scott Anderson, Interim Leader of the BC Conservatives. "Not content with that, they're now setting about destroying our wine industry as collateral damage in a completely avoidable trade war with another NDP government in another province by trying to attack our oil industry as well. If it wasn't so tragic for working families in BC, it would make a great comedy skit. It's as if they picked up a bat and started flailing blindly at our economy like a piñata."

Anderson points to research that shows pipelines are the safest way to transport bitumen and oil products to market and calls on the  Greens and the NDP to stop stalling the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

Anderson says the project has gone through the most rigorous environmental assessment in the world, taking more than 5 years to clear hurdles, including a formal National Energy Board review and politically inspired ad hoc "public participation" reviews.

Anderson says the projects has emerged as the most modern, most studied, most heavily regulated pipeline in the world.

"It's time for adults to take over," said Anderson. "The people of BC can make a start by electing a BC Conservative in the Kelowna West by-election currently underway. Give us a foothold in the Legislature and it'll be the first step toward building a government that treats our people and economy with the respect they deserve."
