As the Trudeau government looks at putting together an “aid package” for Alberta rather than approve the Teck Frontier mine project in the oil sands, and as Liberal MPs openly call for the project to be rejected, it’s always interesting to look at the difference between Alberta and Quebec — at least at how the federal government treats them. We’ve heard plenty about the need to shut down Teck Frontier. The daily news of protestors trying to block any pipeline that carries Alberta oil out of the province is relentless. In Quebec though, big projects just go ahead with government approval. National unity is in the balance. There is no scenario where a federal government would shut down such a major investment in Quebec, one where thousands of jobs would be created.
