BC Tanker Ban, Bill C-48

According to Albertans the sky is falling as Bill C-48, is unfair because it prevents Oilsands Bitumen from going to market, and it's hypocritical because Quebec doesn't ban tankers. It's a Supertanker ban for Hecate Strait and the Douglas Channel. It does not stop smaller oil tankers from carrying sweet crude. My tweet thread below explains why there is no double standard and why the ban is warranted, especially given it's been informal policy for over 20 yrs.

Equalization and Alberta

Alberta is the richest Province in Canada with the highest average income in the country and it boasts the lowest taxes. Conservative Albertans complain that they are being unfairly treated by Ottawa b/c many wrongly believe Albertans are "generous" by sending money to Quebec. Alberta doesn't send a single penny to Quebec and never has, nor can it withdraw from Equalization even if there was a referendum: it's constitutionally enshrined & its formula was approved by Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney himself!
