Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has urged an eastern Canadian audience to stand with Alberta and get a national pipeline built for the good of the entire country.
"Let's work together. Let's get to 'yes' on a pipeline," Notley said in an address to the United Steelworkers' national policy conference in Montreal last Friday.
"It's critical to the future of our country and to the well-being of every Albertan and every Canadian."
Notley has openly supported the proposed Energy East pipeline, which could take crude to refineries in Saint John, N.B., and the expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline to the west coast.
Revenue from oil and gas royalties will plummet by almost 90% this year, she said.
