PRIME MINISTER SAYS NEW LEGISLATION WILL ENSURE $7.4 BILLION TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE WILL BE BUILT

THE STORY

A meeting in Ottawa between Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, B.C. Premier John Horgan and the Prime Minister failed to resolve the stalemate over the stalled Trans Mountain pipeline project.

THE SETTING

So the prime minister made two statements indicating how the project will go ahead.

WHAT IT MEANS

In anticipation of Trudeau’s decision the B.C. government issued a report indicating how difficult it will be for the project to go ahead.
And Horgan also has a serious political problem in that the Green Party, which is keeping his minority government in power, is totally opposed to the pipeline.
But the key point that a lot of people missing are Canada’s First Nations and the crucial impact, if not the most important, they will have on the final outcome.
