Pierre Poilievre

Federal Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre says he will end foreign imports of oil within five years if he is elected prime minister.

“Justin Trudeau supports oil — as long as it’s foreign oil. Every time he kills a Canadian energy project, foreign dictators like Putin do a victory dance because they get to dominate the world market,” said Poilievre in a press release.
