The West Block: Jan. 24 | Canada’s Governor General resigns; pipeline politics; vaccine delays

CA, 24 Jan 2021
Mercedes Stephenson is joined on ‘The West Block’ by Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs Dominic LeBlanc, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and U.S. Chargé d'Affaires in Ottawa Katherine Brucker.

LeBlanc says Julie Payette’s resignation as Canada’s Governor General “allows the employees of Rideau Hall to have an appropriate workplace and it allows a renewal of the leadership at this important institution.”

On U.S. President Joe Biden’s move to cancel Keystone XL, Premier Kenney says ‘it’s a very bad starting point’ for Canada-U.S. relations under a new administration.

When asked about Biden's decision, Brucker says “it’s important to know that this is a presidential decision based on a larger climate agenda.”
