Pipeline support on the rise in BC

Pipeline support on the rise in BC

The comments come as the British Columbia (B.C.) government pledged to file a legal challenge by month-end to determine whether it has the jurisdiction to stop the C$7.4 billion ($5.9 billion) project, which was approved by the federal government in 2016 and would almost triple capacity on the pipeline from Alberta to a Vancouver-area port.

Eby and the rest of the B.C. cabinet, appear to lack the self-awareness to acknowledge that their illegitimate tactics forced Alberta's hand and have brought both provinces to the brink of a trade war.

"The Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline will never be built". We are demonstrating not just that we are exerting and understanding the responsibilities that come with the federal government, but demonstrating as well what we have long held - and what Canadians understand: "that the environment and the economy must go together".

The province announced Wednesday it will be submitting a case they've been compiling to fight the $7.4-billion Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion to the highest court in B.C.

"I'm pretty confident that this is going to get done". London has been blocked by climate campaigners who've built a huge oil pipeline around the building. Almost the same amount of people say the economic benefits of the pipeline outweigh or far outweigh the environmental risks (35 per cent) as those who say the opposite (34 per cent).

Kinder Morgan, the company behind the pipeline, recently suspended non-essential spending on the project.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has gone as far as to consider buying it outright.




"It's easy to say shut it all down, but the fact of the matter is, we all rely on energy products every day and this is a tool to help us make that point".

David Eby said government legal experts looked at the legislation Alberta tabled Monday and concluded it's unconstitutional, against the law and created to not be enacted.

Opponents of the Kinder Morgan project are concerned over the environmental impact of extracting more fossil fuels from Alberta's oil sands and the possibility of an oil tanker spill in Canada's Pacific waters.

The BC government recently proposed a measure to make it more hard to transport oil through the province, and mayors, federal parliament members and other officials across BC have also voiced their unequivocal opposition to the pipeline.

The Alberta government said Monday it might restrict shipments on the existing 300,000-barrel-per-day Trans Mountain pipeline to diluted bitumen, thus displacing the refined products and light oil it carries.

The company set a deadline of May 31 to decide whether to go through with the pipeline expansion.

Kurl adds that political attempts to strong-arm BC - such as Alberta cutting back oil exports to the province or Ottawa withholding infrastructure dollars - appear to be less effective in getting those now opposed to the project to say "yes".
