Total absence of toughness and leadership from Trudeau puts project at even more risk.
Though it scarcely seemed possible, the Trans Mountain expansion is now at even more risk.
Kinder Morgan Canada CEO Steve Kean says the ongoing political fight over the pipeline project is making it “untenable.”
“It’s become clear this particular investment may be untenable for a private party to undertake. The events of the last ten days have confirmed those views.”
Today, B.C. announced they would pursue court action against the project, a further indictment of Justin Trudeau’s failed pipeline summit.
The Trudeau Liberals have repeatedly said that the pipeline will be built, even floating the idea of potentially spending billions of taxpayers dollars to get it going.
Yet, they have failed to use the leverage they have over the B.C. NDP. As has been pointed out by many, they just gave $4.1 billion in infrastructure dollars to B.C., yet threatened to withhold millions of dollars from Saskatchewan for opposing the carbon tax.
It seems that the Trudeau Liberals are really hoping for the project to fail, but are trying to distance themselves from that possible failure through sneaky, empty rhetoric.
At each step of the way, the Trudeau Liberals have done as little as possible to support the project, offering nothing but empty words and vague ‘promises’ while it gets delayed to death.
Now, it appears Canada is even closer to losing the Trans Mountain expansion, in what would be a win for the radical left, and a loss for the vast majority of Canadians who value our energy industry and value the rule of law.
