Premier Brian Pallister is being called out by a conservation watch dog after what the Wilderness Committee is calling "pipeline cheerleading".
The Premier announced yesterday that despite the current feud between British Columbia and Alberta, the Trans Mountain Pipeline project needs to move forward.
Pallister said that while he applauds the Prime Ministers early signals, his leadership and ongoing stewardship over the situation must be maintained.
The Wilderness Committee says that the Premier is weighing in on an issue which has nothing to do with Manitoba, and that the current Provincial Government has not shown any interest in being a leader when it comes to the environment.
The release from the committee went on to call the government "childish" for feeling the need to weigh in on the situation.
