Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe isn’t too impressed with the federal government’s actions in passing two controversial bills, Bill C-69, the Impact Assessment Act, and Bill C-48, the Oil Tanker Moratorium Act, in late June.

In response to their passage, he posted a Facebook message in June, as follows:

“The passage of Bills C-69 and C-48 marks a dark chapter for our energy and industrial sectors, and is deeply concerning for our government and all those that value the economic prosperity of our nation.

“Through this legislation, the federal government has sent a clear message to the Canadian and international investment community that they do not support the competitiveness of our wealth generating and job creating sectors.

"The approval of TMX [the Trans Mountain pipeline] was a positive step, but Bills C-69 and C-48 drastically restrict the possibility of further pipeline and industrial projects to be approved or built,” the premier warned.
