Feds to announce Tuesday morning that Trans Mountain moving forward

Vaughn Palmer

The B.C. government is challenging the constitutionality of an Alberta bill that, if passed, could allow that province to restrict the export of refined oil into this province.

"We feel that it is important to directly and in person express our serious disagreement to Premier Horgan over the actions of the B.C. government to obstruct the Trans Mountain pipeline", he said in a statement Tuesday.

With just over a week to go until Kinder Morgan's deadline for abandoning the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, no other companies have publicly come forward to say they'd be interested in taking over the project.

Kinder Morgan has ceased all non-essential spending on the project until it receives assurances it can proceed without delays, setting a May 31 deadline on getting those guarantees.

She says it's not business as usual because B.C. Premier John Horgan is trying to shut down the pipeline and take $15 billion out of the Canadian economy.

"While they are at the premiers meeting talking about how to spend that kind of money, I'll be here in Alberta talking about how we can earn that kind of money".

Premier Notley initially praised the Horgan move as a step in the right direction ("stepping back from the brink and abiding by the law") and suspended her wine boycott.

"We continue to engage in financial discussions on the way we are going to do that", Trudeau said.

Keys to the series: Can the Caps bring home the Stanley Cup?
The captain and star player for the Washington team has a responsibility to the team, to play harder than he's ever played before. Both teams have taken their knocks in the playoffs and should be able to get over the hump soon enough.

At the rally yesterday, one of the speakers was Cedar George-Parker from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, who have been leading the community opposition to the pipeline in British Columbia.

Trudeau said Canada loses $15 billion a year because oil can not be exported anywhere but the United States, adding that the pipeline expansion opens up the option of exporting to Asian markets.

The NDP government in B.C. came to power past year - supported by the Green Party - after an election campaign in which it committed to working against the pipeline expansion owing to environmental concerns.

"A significant disruption in the supply of gasoline, diesel, and crude oil from Alberta to British Columbia would cause British Columbia irreparable harm", the document asserts.

From the NDP election platform: "The Kinder Morgan pipeline is not in B.C.'s interest ..."

He also said Canada's environmental protections for oceans and its climate change policies hinge on Canada being able to sell its natural resources even as the country begins to transition to cleaner sources of energy.

"It is not to stop the pipeline or prevent it", Eby argued.
