Echoing Jason Kenney, John Baird expresses concern with Christy Clark’s stance on Northern Gateway.

“We can’t have a Canada where we try to toll-gate different goods and services in different parts of the country,” Baird told CBC’s Power and Politics. “Alberta has a great resource, it’s a great resource for Canada, and they obviously have to get that resource to market.”

Central to the Harper government’s response would seem to be an effort to turn tollgate into a verb.
