Ottawa, ON — The Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, issued the following statement regarding the cancellation of Keystone XL:
 
“Today’s cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline extension is devastating.
 
“We need to get as many people back to work, in every part of Canada, in every sector, as quickly as possible. The loss of this important project only makes that harder.
 
“Justin Trudeau should have done more to stand up for our world-class energy sector and the men and women who depend on it to provide for their families.
 
“For years, Conservatives have been calling on the Trudeau Liberals to champion Canadian energy and workers. Yet, they have failed to do so time after time.
 
“Keystone XL is a project of national significance. Securing jobs in the resource sector is an essential part of getting Canadians back to work and Canada’s economic recovery.
 
“Canadians can count on Conservatives to do whatever it takes to get Canada working again.”
