NDP Comments Don't Draw Fire From Local Tory

Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford is brushing aside comments made this week by NDP member John Rafferty on the economic benefits of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.

The Thunder Bay MP said the project won't bring promised jobs to Canada or the States, but Rickford says it's not worth his time, noting the NDP have never been supportive of any pipeline project.

Rickford adds Rafferty is known to say one thing in northwestern Ontario and do the complete opposite in Ottawa. (File photo)
