Trudeau Puts Money Where His Mouth Is On Pipeline Dispute

Trudeau Puts Money Where His Mouth Is On Pipeline Dispute Trudeau Puts Money Where His Mouth Is On Pipeline Dispute

Both Horgan and Notley confirmed Ottawa's solution to the impasse will be financial in nature, which suggests the Canadian government may provide some kind of financial assurance to Kinder Morgan Canada, which has given the government until May 31 to break an impasse or it may cancel the $7.4 billion project.

Notley spoke after an emergency meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the premier of British Columbia, who opposes plans to nearly triple the capacity of the Trans Mountain pipeline from oil-rich Alberta to the west coast.

While Trudeau apparently laid out "legislative and financial measures" to push the project forward, Horgan argued when speaking to reporters that the prime minister did not elaborate.

Kinder Morgan recently suspended its pipeline work amid the intense political uncertainty, saying it would drop the project if the parties fail to resolve their differences by May 31.

The move has been the subject of a heated trade battle between B.C. and Alberta since January and has seen almost 200 people arrested for demonstrating at Kinder Morgan work sites in Burnaby.

"Construction will go ahead", said Trudeau, who is under increasing pressure from the business community and opposition politicians to take action amid fears the dispute could hit already flagging foreign investment.

On Sunday, Horgan did meet in the nation's capital to discuss the pipeline with Notley and Trudeau.

Trudeau said the federal government supports the pipeline because it will produce high-paying jobs and would enable Canadian oil to be exported to markets outside of the domestic and USA markets. About 200 people have been arrested near Kinder Morgan's marine terminal in Burnaby during recent protests.

Although Trudeau's Liberal government could invoke emergency powers to ensure the project goes ahead, that would most likely anger voters in British Columbia and cost the Liberals support in a federal election in October 2019.

"We are going to get the pipeline built".

Trudeau has long insisted the project is within federal jurisdiction and that Horgan's government has no authority to block it - a claim Horgan wants the courts to evaluate, and one with which he says he plans to press ahead. Horgan said they continue to disagree on energy and will proceed with a court battle against the project.

He made his comments in a news conference following an urgent meeting with premier Rachel Notley of Alberta and her British Columbian counterpart, John Horgan. Federal officials complain this is a time-wasting tactic.
