New poll shows rising support for Trans Mountain pipeline, even in BC

The $5bn Trans Mountain project would twin an existing 1,150km pipeline, allowing it to ship up to 890,000 barrels of oil a day from the Alberta tar sands to the coast of British Columbia (BC), in western Canada, for shipment to Asia and other markets.

Spokesperson Shachi Kurl says that support grows even more if the law doesn't side with B.C.

Trudeau has been struggling to resolve a veritable war between B.C. and Alberta over the Trans Mountain pipeline, which he supports in the hopes of increasing oil exports to Asia and decreasing Canada's reliance on the USA market.

A Muse, Stancil and Co. analysis calculates that oil company revenue in Canada would rise $73.5 billion over 20 years if the Trans Mountain pipeline is expanded. "It will be built".

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

The CAODC noted he Act gives Alberta's Minister of Energy the authority to, if necessary, require any company exporting energy products such as gasoline, jet fuel, crude oil and natural gas from Alberta to require a license.

"It's unfortunate that consumers are the ones that are going to have to pay for the irresponsible decisions and the foot dragging of the B.C. government".

It's not just two games, it's about the course of the season and the quality football that City have played game after game. Even the most hardcore of Man Utd supporters will begrudgingly admit that the Man City boss has worked wonders this season.

The chasm between them did not go unacknowledged by the prime minister.

"But, at a day-to-day level, it still seems like a 50-50 shot", that the Kinder Morgan expansion will go ahead, Moscrop said. "Now you see the kind of influence these multinational corporations have on candidates", he said.

"We do not intend to issue updates or further disclosures on the status of consultations until we've reached a sufficiently definitive agreement on or before May 31 that satisfies our objectives".

"After thoroughly assessing all of the risks, the federal government has deemed this project safe and approved it in the national interest of Canada", stated Scholz.

Ahearn is confident the Alberta government "understands the situation", however, and will "check with us on what the potential downsides could be" before taking action.

Horgan's election past year changed that. Mr. Horgan's minority regime depends on the votes of a Green Party that is adamantly opposed to the line.

While I would normally encourage something of a diplomatic response to our neighbours' intransigence on Trans Mountain, B.C. has clearly shown it has no interest in talking.

A former NDP cabinet minister in the 1990s NDP government told me on the weekend, after the pipeline summit in Ottawa had concluded, that he wondered whether Trudeau had the political resilience to weather the coming storm. But he also accused Horgan of ramping up his rhetoric about environmental uncertainty and gaps in the federal oceans protection plan, without providing details.

"My general point of view is that we're better off to have these discussions behind closed doors and to work out things in a collegial fashion", he said. "It's something we very much are open to doing". It's not going to be pretty and the resistance will be aggressive.

"This pipeline should be built, it is unfortunate that it should come to a conversation such as this". The protest comes as Canadian PM Justin Trudeau is set to meet Commonwealth Heads of Government.

The odds may be stacked against him, but B.C.'s premier continues to calmly play the cards he was dealt.

Kenney repeated his calls for the prime minister to penalize B.C.by withholding federal dollars for infrastructure and jobs training.

"That was rejected by the government", Horgan said.
