MP Viersen Celebrates SCC Ruling on No More Pipelines Act

October 13, 2023 – Barrhead, AB


Today the Supreme Court of Canada ruled Trudeau’s ‘No More Pipelines Act’ Bill C-69
is unconstitutional with the Chief Justice of Canada, Hon. Richard Wagner stating: “In
my view, Parliament has plainly overstepped its constitutional competence in enacting
this designated projects scheme.”

Arnold Viersen, MP for Peace River – Westlock, released the following statement in

“I am thrilled by this great news for Albertans and all of Canada. We have fought this bill
for years and it’s time to get these projects moving forward for our families and

“After eight years of Trudeau’s anti-pipeline and resource development policies,
hundreds of billions of dollars in project investments have fled Canada and taken away
countless paycheques for Canadian workers.

“We warned the Liberals that their plans to steamroll provinces and Indigenous peoples
by giving themselves unprecedented power was unconstitutional.

“Today’s ruling is a powerful indictment of Justin Trudeau’s plan to ‘phase out’ Canada’s
natural resource industry and the paycheques it generates for workers.

“A Conservative government continue repeal what’s left of this disastrous job killing law.
We will bring back investment, remove the gatekeepers so we can green light green projects, bring home powerful paycheques, and make traditional and alternative sources
of energy affordable and accessible for all Canadians.”
