Former vice president Al Gore’s anti-pipeline tweet irritates Alberta premier

CALGARY — Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says an anti-oilsands tweet by former U.S. vice-president Al Gore shows a lack of understanding about the facts. Gore said on Twitter on Thursday that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion would be a step backward in solving the climate crisis. He said the Alberta-to-B.C. pipeline would carry what he called "dirty tar sands oil," a term favoured by industry opponents. Notley says views like Gore's are having an ever-shrinking impact and are falling on more deaf ears. She says progress is being made with Ottawa and pipeline builder Kinder Morgan on getting the project on track before a May 31 deadline. Notley made her remarks at the grand opening of a new maternity unit at the Peter Lougheed Centre in Calgary. (Companies in this story: TSX:KML) The Canadian Press
