Solution: Build refineries in Alberta

By Letter to the Editor on February 9, 2018.

To make up for the insult Albertans felt from his father, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should not approve the Trans Mountain bitumen pipeline to B.C. but help build refineries in Alberta to ship cleaner product.

Alberta would get jobs and revenue, Kinder Morgan still gets business and praise for a cleaner pipeline, and B.C. keeps its coast safe and welcome to Albertans. Win-win-win.

Oil multinationals might even like that, as they would save the cost of upgrades to their refineries outside Canada. The real national interest is not to send jobs overseas but create them here.
