Federal government expected to finance Trans Mountain pipeline

Kinder Morgan reported the spill at its Darfield station around 5 a.m

The move will see Ottawa purchase the pipeline and the core assets of Kinder Morgan Canada for $4.5 billion dollars.

Tuesday, Kinder Morgan Canada announced a deal in the works to sell its Trans Mountain pipeline and expansion project to the Government of Canada for $4.5 billion.

The decision of the Canadian federal government to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline and to invest in the controversial expansion work, today generates diverse reactions in political and public opinion sectors of this country.

"By repeatedly saying the pipeline will be built, prime minister Trudeau has painted himself into a corner where this was the last and only option", she said in an interview. Who would have thought that Justin Trudeau - champion of the environment, friend to Indigenous peoples - would roll the dice on his premiership in the cause of building, of all things, an oil pipeline?

Singh says there is a long tradition of non-violent civil disobedience in Canada and he will not condemn people who use protests to express their frustration and anger. Minister of Natural Resources Jim Carr said that the political polarization over the pipeline's construction was atypical for Canada, and he suggested that the federal government's intervention would restore stability and certainty.

The pipeline expansion is expected to triple the amount of Alberta oil transported to the west coast and to overseas markets.

"It does not seem fair that we couldn't get the level of support".

Reilly Smith gave the Golden Knights their second lead of Game 1 when he beat Holtby 3:21 into the second period. It was the best overnight rating for a Game 1 Final since 2015 when Chicago-Tampa Bay did a 4.23 rating.

Climate activists took to Seattle's Elliott Bay Tuesday to protest the Canadian government's decision to buy Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain Pipeline.

"They're going to go full force", she said.

He added the purchasing consortium should also include an established pipeline company such as TransCanada Corp. or Enbridge look after operations.

The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion has become a dinner table debate across the nation this week.

Ottawa has said it does not intend to own the project in the long-term.

"Our government believes that the commercial agreement we have reached with Kinder Morgan is the best way to protect thousands of good, well-paying jobs while delivering a solid return on investment for Canadians", Finance Minister Bill Morneau said in a statement. "This is an investment in Canada's future", he said.

"Pipelines always spill. We don't know what's going to happen when bitumen spills into tidewater, into salt water we just don't know the science isn't there", Bigland-Pritchard said. If B.C.'s minority government, dependent on a handful of Green Party legislators, can scuttle Trans Mountain, federal authority and credibility are out the window. "That allows us now to have more candid discussions with the owners of the pipeline than I would have been able to when they were shareholders in a Texas-based oil company". "What we've been getting in Canada is decision by delay". Completing the expansion of the line to triple its capacity will cost an terrible lot more - the estimate now is $7.4 billion and costs could well escalate with further delay.
