CALGARY — Alberta’s energy minister says she had a productive meeting with Canada’s newly appointed natural resources minister.

Savage says there are many issues that need to be addressed in the near future.

Her priority is dealing with the CN rail strike, which she says is preventing 170,000 barrels of oil from moving out of Alberta every day.

Savage says her other concerns include getting the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion built without delay, and changing two controversial federal bills that affect the energy industry.

“It was a great opportunity to explain the very real problems that Alberta is facing,” she said. “He listened, for sure, and I believe he understood.

“In the months ahead, we’ll see whether there is action.”
