Federal NDP leader tweets against TMX pipeline

Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh must have done some math. His party won 14 seats in B.C. in 2015, and one in Alberta. Then he must have thought, “Sorry, Alberta colleague, gonna have to cut you loose.”

Then he issued the following tweet:

Alberta’s NDP Premier Rachel Notley, whom Singh apparently wants to see return to private life, didn’t send out a tweet in response.

Here is what she had to say, acccording to a CTVNews.ca article:
