MOOSOMIN, Sask. -- Conservative leaders from across Canada rallied Saturday against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Bill C-69.

The premiers of Saskatchewan and New Brunswick joined Conservative leader Andrew Scheer on a panel of speakers at the event held to draw attention to legislation that would overhaul how major energy projects are reviewed.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe called it "the no more pipelines bill."

"We have a very thorough process that does work. What we need is a federal government that supports our resource industries across this nation," Moe told the crowd of hundreds in southeastern Saskatchewan.

"Unfortunately what we have is a federal government that is pressing forward with Bill C-69."

Scheer vowed that if elected in October, he would repeal Bill C-69, if it passed, but his government s first job would be to scrap the carbon tax.

Before the event, rally organizer Sinclair Harrison said if the bill passes it would be detrimental to future pipeline development.

He also hoped the event would encourage TransCanada Corp. to reapply to build Energy East, a pipeline that would have transported oil from Alberta and Saskatchewan to New Brunswick and Quebec.
