So where was the plan to build a pipeline east and refine Canadian oil for Canadian consumption instead of taxing Alberta’s oil in order to buy foreign oil?
So where was the plan to get Canadian oil east instead of taxing Alberta’s resources to feed eastern Canada’s foreign oil addiction. Show me.

no - again, the NEP was only in place for a short period of (essentially) 3-4 years... and accomplished much in that short time frame. It's obviously quite difficult to presume to champion national infrastructure initiatives in a presumed federal-provincial partnership... when the official Conservative Opposition and principal province (Alberta) move to undercut anything/everything about the NEP. Notwithstanding, of course, the shifts to increased Canadian ownership (and resulting self-determination/self-sufficiency)... coupled with the NEP incentive programs, were targeted to bring Canadian investment forward to shape/drive that very national infrastructure you keep beaking off about!
