Finance Minister Bill Morneau has hinted there'll be additional costs to the Trans Mountain project, but says they'll be defrayed by revenue generated by the pipeline itself.

"I knew the potential options they were facing, I just didn't know which one they would settle on", Crey said.

Kanahus Manuel, who's spearheading the Tiny House Warriors movement in an attempt to block the pipeline, was on site during the cleanup - and plans to keep monitoring the area.

The Trans Mountain expansion has faced fierce opposition from environmental groups and some British Columbia First Nations and municipalities.

"That is the first priority".

Opposition to the government's proposal comes also from fiscal conservatives, who question the logic behind what they describe as a government bailout.

"This decision represents both a colossal failure of the Trudeau government to enforce the law of the land, and a massive, unnecessary financial burden on Canadian taxpayers", Canadian Taxpayers Federation Federal Director Aaron Wudrick said in a statement. "When we have something to announce you can be sure we will announce it". Like their national counterparts, the province's Greens adamantly oppose the Trans Mountain pipeline.

"That's six and a half decades that we're talking about and of course it's quite exceptional that there are two provinces that see the issue quite differently. It kind of appeared that Kinder Morgan might not have thought this was such a good deal for a variety of reasons and those same concerns that Kinder Morgan and have not gone away", Stetski said. "What we see is this as an example of the need for us to step in when things are hard". While the government's takeover of the project has reassured its backers that it will be built, with construction starting in August, it also raises the stakes for Ottawa. While Ottawa has said it doesn't want to own the pipeline in the long term, the chance of Alberta keeping its stake in the project would depend on a few factors. Instead, it will sell the controversy-plagued project to Canada. "It takes hard work".

"It's essential we see a smooth transition to construction at this point", he said.

As the Liberals try to make a government guarantee on the project, "this is taking a bad idea and turning it into a worse idea", West says.

"It was an economic project that had investors and it had approval".

There is a critical difference between the Alaska Highway Gas line and Trans Mountain.

"The announcement yesterday was no victory for the energy sector".

'They criticized the Harper government's pipeline processes, they promised us science-based decision making, democratic processes-but then was happened? That money is going out of the country instead of being invested in here.

A finance ministry spokesperson later said in an email to Black Press Media that the purchase would be financed by a loan and that the $4.5 billion would be recorded as an asset, not a debt, and not add to Ottawa's current $18.1-billion deficit.
