Premier Rachel Notley will deliver a speech to the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce on Thursday on the heels of a cross-country tour promoting pipelines.
Notley’s tour has included pitstops in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver, where she has advocated for Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain expansion project.
She criticized a decision by the National Energy Board to include downstream emissions in pipeline proposals, calling it historic overreach. She also hailed the approval of Keystone XL after the Nebraska Public Service Commission approved the passage of the TransCanada project through the state.
Notley will speak to the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce at the Shaw Conference Centre around 12:40 p.m.
