Panda motion that would put Alberta oil before dictator oil to be debated this afternoon

Wildrose Shadow Economic Development Minister Prasad Panda is calling for all party support for his Motion 505 that will be debated this afternoon in the Legislature.

The Motion, if passed, would pressure the federal government to end dependence on foreign dictator oil in favour of Alberta oil. The Motion reads:

Be it resolved that the Legislative Assembly urge the federal government to develop strategies to facilitate the building of pipelines within Canada to ensure security of supply to the Canadian market thereby shifting Canada away from buying oil from countries with oppressive dictatorships.

“I am hopeful that this common sense motion will be supported by all MLAs this afternoon,” Panda said. “A vote in favour of this motion is a vote in favour of Alberta oil.”
