Governor Cuomo should take a hard look at British Columbia’s all time high gas prices since blocking the Canadian pipeline might be a glimpse at New York’s future.
The Canadian pipeline civil war got even nastier this week. To those observant enough to notice, the warning sirens for the United States are blaring.
On Wednesday, the Alberta provincial government followed through on its threat to neighboring British Columbia by passing a law permitting Alberta to control who receives Albertan energy shipments. Premier Rachel Notley said that “if the path forward for the (Trans Mountain) pipeline through B.C. is not settled soon, I am ready and prepared to turn off the taps.”
Immediately, B.C. Premier John Horgan responded by threatening to seek an injunction preventing Alberta from ever using the law.
Thanks to his leftist environmental supporters, Horgan has backed himself into a corner. He now is fighting Alberta, the Canadian federal government in Ottawa and the B.C. Liberal Party opposition. “We’re seeing the biggest pump prices in B.C. history” noted B.C. Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson. “We can’t live with that forever.”
