Rachel Notley calling Jagmeet Singh "Naive" and not "Mature", Notley says Singh's opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is premised on a lack of understanding of the economic stakes.
She says she's tried in the past to have that conversation but so far, the federal NDP leader has declined. She also questioned his maturity as a leader.
"We were disappointed we didn't have those conversations with him at that time and we still haven't," said Notley. "That's his choice, I hope at some point in the future he will take a more mature approach to his leadership."
Notley also reminded Singh it's a mistake to continually pit the environment against the economy.
"To do that and forget the needs of working people, or to throw working people under the bus, means that both economic growth and environmental protection are bound to fail," said Notley.
Notley says she remains open to having a conversation with Singh about the merits of the project.
