Saskatchewan wants Ottawa to get tough with BC over Trans Mountain pipeline

Taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for Prime Minister Trudeau's failure, say Conservatives

The Trans Mountain line expansion would add to the existing 1953-originated pipeline, twinning the system to increase product transportation and reach increased global markets.

"I worked with dozens of MPs in Ottawa, including (opposition) critics who were thoughtful, intelligent, engaged people with whom I had a constructive relationship. He wasn't one of them".

"Now the Trans Mountain Expansion is at risk because the Prime Minister has put Canada at a serious competitive disadvantage".

Kenney dismissed suggestions it's a personal issue with Trudeau, whose Liberals defeated Kenney's Conservatives in the 2015 federal election.

He said investors need certainty in order to back a project the government has repeatedly insisted is in the national interest, but steadfastly refused to say what sort of dollar figures are now on the table.

The pipeline will carry enhanced quantities of oil west from the Alberta oil sands through the province of British Columbia (B.C.) to the Pacific Ocean, where the oil would be shipped to Asian markets. I don't know what the future holds. "This guy is an empty trust-fund millionaire who has the political depth of a finger bowl".

"He can't read a briefing note longer than a cocktail napkin, OK". Kinder Morgan still needs clarity on proceeding, he said. "From day one, Horgan has known that he can not block this project and chose to play politics instead of working for the best interests of British Columbians".

The Liberal government position is that it approved the project in 2016 after a rejigged environmental assessment and Indigenous consultation process, and in concert with the its climate change and oceans protection plans.

Kenney has pledged to return civil discourse to politics. "It's really a message to Alberta that it should be referred to the courts as we referred our bill to the courts".

When asked how calling out the prime minister's IQ squares with a return to civility, Kenney said United Conservative members have gone 10 weeks without heckling in the legislature.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says while she welcomes Ottawa's renewed commitment to backstopping the Trans Mountain pipeline, her government will still pass a bill that could punish B.C. with oil-related price spikes.

"If Kinder Morgan is not interested in building the project - we think plenty of investors would be interested in taking on this project, especially knowing that the federal government believes it is in the best interest of Canadians and is willing to indemnity to make sure it gets built".
