Nelson protestors denounce federal purchase of Trans Mountain Pipeline

Trans Mountain private investigator Canada to Buy Kinder Morgan Oil Pipeline in Bid to Save Project - Details
Frank Williams | 05 June, 2018, 19:22

Rachel Blaney, Member of Parliament for North Island and Powell River, said Kinder Morgan's plan was still lacking when they announced the deadline.

Steve Kean, Kinder Morgans chairman and chief executive officer, told a conference call his company welcomed a “transaction that benefits the people of Canada, ” as well as shippers on the Trans Mountain expansion and Kinder Morgan shareholders.

The new pipeline will twin with an already existing 65-year-old pipeline and carry 890,000 barrels of Albertan crude oil 1,150 kilometres daily to a new port in Burnaby.

During the call, Trudeau reiterated the federal government's jurisdiction over interprovincial pipelines, and noted that the Government of Canada is confident that, with this agreement, it is upholding the trust Canadians have placed in the government to both grow the economy and protect the environment.

On Friday, a B.C. Supreme Court judge made protesting more hard when he scrapped a 10-minute pre-arrest warning and expanded an injunction to include other facilities used by the company.

He added the purchasing consortium should also include an established pipeline company such as TransCanada Corp. or Enbridge Inc.to look after operations.

British Columbia Premier John Horgan said his government, which has moved to thwart the project, would continue to defend provincial interests.

"For too long we have relied on one trading partner for our oil and gas exports", Natural Resource Minister Jim Carr said.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau says the federal government's nationalization of the Trans Mountain pipeline project sends the message that Canada is a safe place to invest. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau first proposed to indemnify the project from risk, but ultimately chose to purchase it outright as the May 31 deadline neared.

The Government of British Columbia remains opposed to the pipeline expansion because of its risk to the environment. "We will not stand down no matter who buys this ill-fated and exorbitantly priced pipeline".

Without government assurances that the pipeline project could proceed in full accordance with the law and duly secured permits and approvals, the company was going to shut construction down.

National Bank Financial reiterated their sector perform rating on shares of Kinder Morgan Canada (TSE:KML) in a research report report published on Wednesday.

Now, Justin Trudeau has chose to use taxpayer money to buy the entire pipeline.

There may also be positives from Ottawa taking over the project, including that the government may be more focused and sensitive than a private company to take into consideration the views of stakeholders, including of First Nations, said Speers, who teaches courses on public-sector management.

"Even if the federal government restarts work on the expansion, there's no guarantee that the political and legal conflict will end".
