Right now there’s no social acceptability (for it) in Quebec.”Kenney said inter-provincial pipelines is a federal regulatory responsibility and it doesn’t matter which party wins the federal election in October — action must be taken.“This is not a partisan question,” said Kenney. “Whether it’s Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau or Prime Minister (Andrew) Scheer or prime minister anyone else, I would expect them to convey it to provinces.”The conference is to wrap up Thursday. SASKATOON — Alberta’s premier says it doesn’t matter if Quebec opposes the idea of an oil pipeline as part of the Energy East project — the federal government should step in and make it happen.Jason Kenney said he and Quebec Premier Francois Legault have made some gains after a rocky start.But he said Legault is wrong about an oil pipeline because Quebec benefits from the oil industry.- Advertisement -“Quebec receives about $13 billion a year in equalization payments — almost all of that comes from Alberta,” Kenney said at The Council of the Federation meeting in Saskatoon on Wednesday.“If you’re going to benefit from the resources that pay the bills in the federation, then help us develop those resources and get a fair price for them.”Quebec is backing one major issue with some of the other provinces — opposition of the federal carbon tax.Advertisement The Quebec government recently joined as an intervener in Saskatchewan’s appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada of its constitutional challenge of Ottawa’s carbon levy.But Legault said Quebec is simply joining Saskatchewan’s fight to contest Ottawa’s jurisdiction. He said Quebec has no plan to change its cap-and-trade system, which charges a price on carbon.And while Quebec is open to moving more resources through its jurisdiction, that doesn’t include oil.“It’s clear right now that when we talk about this economic corridor we agree about hydro-electricity, about gas. We agree on many other subjects and I’m open and I support the project of a gas pipeline,” Legault said.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgLetterkenny Golf News: The “official” tee-off for the golfing season, the St.Patrick’s Day Open, drew an entry of up to one hundred and thirty players to Barnhill which was all the more satisfactory for the winner.Clifford Malone [7], to know that he beat not only the course with a one under par 71 gross, but such a large “field” with a high calibre of low handicappers. Clifford took the turn after nine holes with 23pts following birdies at 1st, 3rd and 9th and, despite dropping three shots during the round, another birdie at 12th and a straight par run over the final five holes gave him an unassailable total of 44pts to take the St. Patrick’s Day trophy.Cat 4 members Dermot Higgins [23] and Victor Byrne [23] battled it out for the runner-up spot and it was Dermot who claimed that placing on B.O.T.Playing steady handicap golf intermitten with a few double bogeys, each of these competitors did their best to claim the trophy but fell short on the back nine.Saturday 21st Open again brought the single figure handicappers to the fore with 2015 club Captain Gerard Duffy [6] showing no signs of “letting up” due to his arduous office position this year!Played in crisp, dry conditions but with a touch of spring chill in the air, Gerard recorded birdies at 7th, 10th, 11th and 13th, the only blemish on the card being a double bogey at 4th and finishing with a straight five pars in a row from 14th thru 18th and a 24pt back nine for a 43pt total and a one under par gross 71.Runner-up, just one point behind on 42pts, was fellow six handicapper Don Ponsonby, also recording birdies at 1st, 4th, 9th and 16th and returning equal nines of 21pts each to relegate third placed Tony Duffy [22] on B.O.T.Sunday 22nd confined competition winner was decided by another B.O.T and it was that man in form Don Ponsonby [5] who followed up his second placing on Saturday by taking top honour this time.One of the easiest read cards in a long time, Don had fifteen pars, two bogeys and one birdie at the 18th hole par five, 20pts on each nine holes culminating in a total of 40pts.Relegated to second place on that b.o.t. was Seamus Mc Hugh [16], whose double bogey at 9th no doubt had him lose out on top spot. In third place was another early season “form” player, Michael Collum [8] whose 39pts consisted of an uncharacteristic “blank” at 7th and a birdie at par five 18th.
