US Senator supports Alberta PM in energy security partnership

A top US senator is backing Alberta Premier Jason Kenney in calling for more North American oil to replace Russian supplies during the invasion of Ukraine.

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, a key Democrat voice in the evenly divided Senate, says it’s critical for the US and Canada to be energy security partners to support global demand.

According to Kenney, Manchin’s visit to Alberta will help raise the profile of the province’s resources and foster greater cooperation between the two countries.

Manchin says he’s not sure there’s a way to revive the project, but adds it would be foolish not to.

Earlier, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the decision on the fate of the pipeline rested with the US.

He also said his Liberal government will remain committed to Canada as an energy partner for the South with traditional and renewable resources.
