Statement from Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan on the cancellation of the Energy East pipeline project:

"Like many Albertans, we are disappointed that TransCanada will not be pursuing the Energy East pipeline project.

However, we understand that this was ultimately a business decision by TransCanada based on current economic and political realities. No one benefits when politicians play the blame game. Throwing mud at our political rivals is not a constructive way to handle this situation. Albertans have had enough of the politics of division. We need to have a mature conversation about balancing our economic and environmental interests while respecting the views of others.

Liberals look forward to the future, and maximising opportunities to develop our energy industry while still balancing our obligations to the environment and Indigenous Peoples.”
