NDP Statement Following Call with Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh released the following statement:

“Yesterday, I was happy to speak with Alberta NDP Leader Rachel Notley.

Ms. Notley repeated her support for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and I told her that I continue to oppose the pipeline expansion.

While we disagree on TMX, we share concern for the workers. I know that the people of Alberta need their governments to have their backs and I want them to know that I will fight to make sure that no worker or community is left behind.

During her time as Premier, Ms. Notley showed Canadians how a government that cares about people can make their lives better every day. I appreciated her sharing her support for our pharmacare and dental care plans.

On Monday, Canadians elected a parliament that will need to work together to get things done for people. We won’t agree on everything, but I believe that there is more that unites us than divides us and I believe in working and building together."
