Canada Rescues Embattled Kinder Morgan Pipeline Project

Trans Mountain seeks stricter injunction to limit protests at B.C. terminals

So, the prime minister seems to be keeping his pipeline promise by being kinder to Kinder.

"The failure to get... our product to Canadian tidewater has been estimated to cost the Canadian economy around $14 billion per year", she said. "However, despite overall support for the project, residents are opposed to the federal government's decision to acquire the pipeline and its assets-including federal Liberal voters-leaving support for Trudeau waning as an outcome".

Energy East would have delivered more than 1 million barrels of Western oil a day to the Irving Oil refinery in Saint John.

Mayor Don Scott said earlier this week that he hoped the plan would get the pipeline built, but regretted the federal and Alberta government felt this was the best way to move forward. It's not old news in parts of Atlantic Canada; it's a fresh wound.

Protect the Inlet says, "The Trudeau's government purchase of the pipeline and tanker project "changes nothing" for those who are committed to do "whatever it takes" to protect the inlet, land, water and climate". Instead, he said Trudeau did nothing to fast-track any constitutional references and never introduced legislation to "entrench and enshrine federal jurisdiction".

"This is the mischief we are here to address", Killoran said, adding protest organizers are committed to stopping Trans Mountain trucks from entering construction sites and aim to blockade other locations where the company might store equipment or have contractors working on the project.

And in a handsome piece of irony, pipeline protestors now own a piece of the project they loathe.

Morneau said this week the only way to provide 100 per cent certainty was for Ottawa to buy the pipeline, build the expansion itself and then sell the whole thing back to the private sector when it made financial sense later.

In other words, Horgan's regulation would be unconstitutional no matter who owns the pipeline, said Blue. She said the new protester tactics targeting sites outside Burnaby require an equivalent response.

He said the pipeline purchase provided the federal jurisdiction needed to overcome British Columbia's opposition, but gave no details of how this would work.

Maybe Ottawa can muster the military and provide pipeline peacekeepers in the national interest and keep people like MP Elizabeth May from another arrest.

Indigenous groups in the Fort McMurray region of Alberta have put governments on notice they want to buy an equity share in the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline. "People use protests as a way to express their frustration and I understand that".
