Justin Trudeau To Sit Down With BC, Alberta Premiers Over Trans Mountain Dispute
Trudeau had an emergency cabinet meeting on Tuesday where ministers discussed - but did not settle on - options for action, including whether to help finance the project or pull funding from B.C.to help convince Horgan to stop blocking the project.
Over the weekend, as news broke that Kinder Morgan suspended their non essential spending on the embattled pipeline from Edmonton to the BC coast, Alberta premier Notley floated the idea of partnering with the company to get past BC's opposition to it.
Amid continued turmoil over the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion, a social media post by a Kamloops city councillor is turning heads on both sides of the dispute.
Trudeau, who is now on an global trip to Lima, Peru, will be making a previously unscheduled trip back to Ottawa for the meeting before continuing on to Paris, and then London.
One of those critics was NDP leader Jagmeet Singh.
The B.C. government, meanwhile, indicated it is prepared to proceed with a reference to the federal court to determine whether it can restrict the flow of oil-sands bitumen through the province in order to protect its environment from oil spills and the dramatic increase of crude-oil tankers in Vancouver Harbour and coastal waters.
However, Morneau said Wednesday the government is considering "legal, regulatory and financial" ways to ensure the $7.4-billion expansion isn't hampered any further.
He said the government has been talking to Kinder Morgan but declined to reveal more.
The report suggests the bill would allow Alberta to limit exports of natural gas, oil, gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel that are shipped through pipeline, rail and truck.
Asked earlier this week whether the prime minister could afford a prolonged absence outside the country at a time when two provinces were squabbling and the major energy project hung in the balance, a senior government official defended Trudeau's travel plans, saying it was important to promote Canada's interests on the world stage.
Aurore Fauret, with the group 350 Canada, says Trudeau has not provided any scientific evidence to back his claims that the pipeline will pose no risk to emissions levels, the oceans or coastlines.
