Joe Oliver on the Northern Gateway pipeline
We started this segment with a clip with how Prime Minister Stephen Harper framed the discussion around the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline during his interview with Peter Mansbridge on The National on Monday.
The National Energy Board hearings into the proposed pipeline continue this week in B.C., and the controversy -- about whether to approve the pipeline and who should get a say in the debate -- is echoing across the country.
Joe Oliver is the cabinet minister at the centre of the debate. He is Canada's Natural Resources Minister and he calls the proposed pipeline a nation builder. Joe Oliver was in our Toronto studio.
