BC judge expands pipeline injunction as protesters use 'calculated' defiance

"It's fully subscribed by shippers, it goes to tidewater.it would be a good asset and you could sell that at a good price once you've got it done", he said. "Your job is to continue on, to embrace those changes, to communicate well, to keep everyone involved".
"The Trudeau government is spending $4.5 billion of taxpayers' money to let the Texas company Kinder Morgan wipe its hands clean of a pipeline project that can't find private sector investors", she said. Construction is set to resume immediately, with Ottawa footing the bill for summer construction, backed by loan guarantees.
Anti-pipeline protesters marched on Kinder Morgan's Burnaby Mountain terminal this morning. "Not in anyone's universe", May said on CTV's Question Period. He expects the project to add 4,000 CLAC jobs.
Unfortunately for the federal Liberals, those in BC who voted for them in the 2015 federal election are largely opposed to their decision to buy the pipeline, 49 per cent opposed vs. 40 per cent support.
The federal government may also put more focus on transparency and the environment, said Speers, who was formerly a consultant for firms such as KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers. A government commitment, she said, could "ensure women, Indigenous people, and apprentices get work", in the trades. It didn't specify how it would spend the proceeds of the sale but did say it plans to continue to invest in Canada.
Around 100 people protested at a Trans Mountain work site against the pipeline's expansion on Saturday in Burnaby, B.C., and while there were no arrests, there was a new name.
Kinder Morgan has estimated the expansion would cost $7.4 billion, of which $1.1 billion has already been spent, but it admits that estimate is out of date and doesn't take into account delays caused by ongoing court challenges and permitting in B.C.

Lava sends up clouds of steam and toxic gases when it hits the Pacific Ocean as Kilauea Volcano continues its eruption cycle. Talmadge Magno, Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator, said at least 159 homes have now been claimed by lava.
Given Canadas shaky history of owning Petro-Canada and taking an equity stake in the oil sands, Arctic exploration and development of Newfoundlands offshore oil deposits, including an interest in the Hibernia venture, Morneau was quick to emphasize that his government does not intend to be the long-term owner of (Trans Mountain)..
It's expected the transaction will be finalized by the fall, at which time Ottawa will transfer ownership to a federal Crown corporation.
Blaney also said that the buyout doesn't align with promises made by the Liberal government.
The idea is to eventually find another buyer, but industry analysts have said that will be hard until all of the regulatory and legal hurdles are cleared.
Opposition leader Jason Kenney issued his own statement that took aim at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Warren Forsythe and Terry Shendruk joined protesters at the Westridge Marine Terminal and later at the Burnaby Mountain tank farm, according to investigation notes included in their May 30 affidavits.
"It needs to be a world-class project ... it needs the best Canadian workers", Cochrane said.
