Last November, the newly elected Prime Minister justified his choices with the answer «Because this is 2015!», meaning we have to adapt new methods to face the challenges of our times. This is the message that Mr Montpetit is sending to Premier Rachel Notley and the province of Alberta.
Mr Montpetit stresses the arrogant attitude of TransCanada and some supporters of the Energy East project. He believes that Canadians must establish a dialogue based on respect instead of playing fancy public relation games.
Mr Gérard Montpetit supports the decision of Mayor Denis Coderre, as a spokesman for Montreal’s Urban Community and its 82 municipalities, to oppose the construction of TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline.
