Yves-François Blanchet answers a question about fossil fuels and the LNG pipeline


Blanchet, you’re against
pipelines, but you have not denounced Quebec’s LNG pipeline,
which will go all the way to Saguenay. Can you tell us whether you are
against fossil fuels only when Alberta makes money? To be consistent in my answers,
and I have answered this previously, there’s a
public hearing bureau in Quebec. I think I say clearly that oil
and fossil fuel are energies of the past.
It’s not our future. These are not the
projects we must invest in. But, as a former Minister of
Environment, I am waiting for the BAPE’s report. I don’t know whether it will
be favourable to LNG, but we’ll see. We will table a bill asking that
the hearing office in Quebec has precedence on the environmental
assessments in Ottawa. I think that the bureau will be
quite stern in its assessment.
