PM must push ahead with Trans Mountain pipeline (With poll)

PM must push ahead with Trans Mountain pipeline (With poll)

It is your dough that will keep the pipeline alive.

At a news conference, Grand Chief Stewart Phillip said, "We confirm that our opposition is resolute, and we fully intend to stop this massively destructive pipeline from being built".

Later today, the prime minister is flying to London to meet with British counterpart Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth. Maybe it's a world of dreams where a carbon tax does equal a pipeline.

Following Sunday's meeting, Premier Horgan said he will stay with the question he's posed to the court system over what jurisdiction B.C. has, if any, over the pipeline and its contents.

"What is incredible to me is that there's so much mythology that's part of the discourse - a lot of it coming from Rachel Notley, but some things are being parroted in the mainstream media analysis about what the various governments can or cannot do", said Lee, who is also co-director of the Climate Justice Project, a research partnership with the University of British Columbia's School of Community and Regional Planning.

Phillip countered that there are still communities along the pipeline route that don't support the project, including the Tseil-Waututh on Burrard Inlet, and the nearby Squamish Nation, which would see increased oil tanker traffic off the coast of its territory.

Trump tweets accuses China, Russia of currency devaluation
Higher interest rates will increase the value of the USA dollar, making American exports more expensive. President Donald Trump accused China in a Twitter post on Monday of devaluing its currency.


So the feds in some way, shape or form are going to put taxpayer dough into this pipeline project.

Premier Rachel Notley formally announced Bill 12, first hinted at last week, on Monday in Edmonton.

Kinder Morgan also set a deadline of May 31 to get "certainty" on the project so it could alleviate the concerns of its shareholders, which caused the feds to scramble. "That is why we are at this point right now".

Ball says the federal government stepping in to a provincial dispute to support a pipeline project is a good signal for Newfoundland and Labrador's offshore oil and gas industry, where a huge portion of provincial revenue is generated. "And the process the Trudeau government has used following on from the Harper government has not been in our interest".

"We are responding to this situation".

Officials say the government is also hoping the partnership will convince the French that Canada is serious about fighting climate change - and as a result help with ratification of the new Canada-EU free trade deal.

After the meeting with Trudeau and B.C. Premier Horgan, Notley tells the national press how the B.C. NDP government creates uncertainty in the pipeline "by coming up with creative ways in which to inject a certain amount of legal debate".

March 27, 2018: City of Burnaby, B.C., says it will file an appeal to the Supreme Court in connection with the Federal Court of Appeal ruling. The PM made it "abundantly clear" he doesn't wish to punish British Columbians.

Beatty said the Trudeau government should introduce a motion in the House of Commons that would seek "an affirmation by all members of Parliament that this project is in the national interest, and that the federal government is instructed to take any appropriate measures to ensure that the project moves ahead without further delay". "My obligation is to the people of BC, and I will defend that until I am no longer premier", he said.

Alberta and B.C. have been locked in a battle over the future of Kinder Morgan Canada's $7.4-billion plan to triple capacity of the Trans Mountain pipeline, which will carry 890,000 barrels of diluted bitumen per day from the Alberta oilsands to a shipping terminus in Burnaby upon completion.

The legal games have not stopped.

But Trudeau's message was the opposite of the sentiments shared Monday by B.C. Indigenous leaders, MPs and mayors. Approval came in consultation with the previous B.C. Liberal government, which gave its consent to the project after its own conditions were met.
