Pipeline game draws Redford’s ire
TORONTO—Alberta Premier Alison Redford said she is disappointed to see a taxpayer-funded online game showing the bombing of a gas pipeline.
TV Ontario provided money to create the game, called “Pipe Trouble,” to accompany a documentary about the pipeline debate in British Columbia.
The provincially-funded broadcaster said the game is meant to engage people on both sides of the pipeline debate, and it’s not taking sides.
But Redford said a taxpayer-funded game depicting the blowing up of pipelines is contrary to Canada’s interests given the entire country benefits from a strong and diverse energy sector.
Redford added she’s encouraged Ontario’s governing Liberals are looking into the matter.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has said her government isn’t taking a side in the pipeline debate.
