Canada to buy Trans Mountain pipeline for $4.5 billion to ensure it gets built

In an extraordinary development early Tuesday, the federal government announced it would buy the Trans Mountain pipeline system and its planned expansion project for C$4.5 billion ($3.5 billion) to ensure it gets built.

"Will the Prime Minister promise to enter into negotiations to provide the same level of certainty for Energy East?" she asked.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said Horgan's administration has shown willingness only to stand in the way. Saint John, N.B., Mayor Don Darling also took to Twitter to wonder "where was this support for Energy East".

Ahead of his speech, a crowd of pro-pipeline protestors yelled "Build that Pipe!" while wearing "I Love Oil Sands" t-shirts, with Morneau and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley greeting them and signing a "Pipelines to Tidewater" banner. However the questions raise a possible vulnerability for the Liberals in Atlantic Canada, a region where the party won all 32 seats in the last election.

Duane Bratt said it's too soon to say whether Trans Mountain will give Notley a bump in the polls, but no deal by Thursday would clearly have been a killer.

Opponents to the Kinder Morgan project cite a 700 per cent increase in oil tanker traffic along the B.C. coast as one of the major red flags. "This decision changes nothing", he said.

Many demonstrators are outraged with people calling the decision to use tax payer money to save the project 'ridiculous, ' reported News 1130.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who spoke with Horgan Tuesday, reiterated his government's opinion that it has jurisdiction over interprovincial pipelines.

Hermond and others saying she was trying to find her cat behind the building, and when they went to help her look, people saw Mr. One sight during the flood: a handmade, white flag hung from an upper story of a Main Street building bearing the letters SOS.

In return for the purchase, Kinder Morgan will go ahead with its original plan to twin the pipeline this summer while the sale is finalized, which isn't expected to happen until August, Morneau told the news conference in Ottawa.

Federal cabinet ministers defended the purchase in a government press release. A lack of capacity in pipelines or in rail cars to ship oil produced in Alberta is also hurting Canada's energy sector.

Among the reasons the company cited when it threatened to walk away in April was inordinate permit delays by the city of Burnaby, where the pipeline ends.

Denouncing the project as a grave threat to Indigenous lands and Canada's water supply, green groups and climate activists vowed to do everything in their power to thwart the pipeline expansion.

"This is a bad day for British Columbia, because John Horgan has chose to kick the feds in the shins and now they're coming back with our tax dollars to fix the problem", he said. The fact the pipeline is about to be owned by a federal Crown corporation doesn't affect the reference case, he added.

She doesn't expect to see a change in the same environmental regulations that she says has failed to protect her property. She didn't say how long the province could hold on to that investment, while the federal government has stressed its financial commitment will be on a short-term basis.

In a statement, Greenpeace campaigner Mike Hudema asserted that "Trudeau is gambling billions of Canadian taxpayer dollars on an oil project that will never be built - a project that Kinder Morgan itself has indicated is "untenable" and that faces more than a dozen lawsuits, crumbling economics and a growing resistance movement that is spreading around the world". "I would be shocked if the Canadian government didn't make money", he said.
