Saskatchewan election candidate questions: Energy East Pipeline

In the days leading up to the provincial election on Monday, April 4th, we will be publishing the answers to questions posed by 106-1 The Goat to the candidates running in the Lloydminster riding. The responses are listed in alphabetical order and are unedited. They have not been fact-checked and The Goat is not responsible for any errors or inaccuracies.


Q: Where does your party stand on the Energy East Pipeline and how do you think it could be advantageous or disadvantageous for this constituency?


Lisa Grant, Saskatchewan Green Party

Candidate did not provide responses.


Michelle Oleksyn, New Democratic Party of Saskatchewan

A: The Saskatchewan New Democrats have long supported our provincial oil industry and the pipelines that sustain it. The previous NDP government helped build thousands of kilometers of pipeline across the province. We also built much of the regulatory framework for the modern Saskatchewan oil industry, the coattails of which Brad Wall has ridden for 8 years.

The NDP supports the concept of East-West pipelines in Canada, like Energy East. We are committed to getting our resources to market in a safe and secure manner, and with all possible opportunities for adding value before product leaves the province. Pipelines, like any other major project, must be subject to due process of the proper regulatory bodies.


Dolores Patayken, Saskatchewan Liberals

Candidate did not provide responses.


Colleen Young, Saskatchewan Party

A:  The Energy East Pipeline is imperative to supporting the oil industry as well as getting western oil to our eastern sea ports for export in a much safer way. It would create thousands of temporary jobs and hundreds of permanent jobs!
