In recent comments, Trudeau’s justice minister David Lametti said the federal government is “looking at” rescinding the legislation that gives Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba control over their natural resources:
Canada is more divided than we have been in a long time. And now, the Liberals are considering launching a direct assault on Western Canada’s natural resources.
In the 1930s, Canada entered into a series of agreements that transferred federal administration and control over land and natural resources to Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Trudeau has been relentless in seeking to crush the Western Canadian energy sector and has only been somewhat held back by the fact that we are a nation where the power of the federal government is limited. Now, his ministers are musing about overturning that.
