Canada talking to pipeline company about aid to solve crisis

Canada talking to pipeline company about aid to solve crisis

He's offering few details, however, saying the negotiations will not take place in public.

Kinder Morgan Canada, part of Kinder Morgan Inc, is threatening to abandon the project unless it receives sufficient clarity about the path ahead by May 31.

"If the federal government tries to ram through this pipeline, it could mean going back to one of the darkest times in modern Canadian history", he wrote in the piece, co-authored with Serge Simon, grand chief of the Mohawk Council of Kanesatake. Horgan defeated Clark in an election a year ago.

Although Trudeau's Liberal government could invoke emergency powers to ensure the project goes ahead, that would most likely anger voters in British Columbia and cost the Liberals support in a federal election in October 2019. "That is why we are at this point right now". "It was a collegial meeting among peers".

Horgan and Notley joined Trudeau, Morneau and Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr to discuss the next steps for the floundering project, which would expand an existing pipeline to the B.C. coast.

Trudeau has called on Horgan to "stop obstructing" the Trans Mountain project, which the feds approved in a tradeoff with British Columbia to reject another pipeline that would have crossed a temperate rain forest. Analysts suggest that could hike gas prices in the Lower Mainland over $2 per litre and would have an immediate, economy-wide impact on the province.

Alberta, meanwhile, is considering buying a stake in the project to allay investor fears, and is urging Ottawa to match its investment.

The legislation is expected to reassert, in addition to the Constitution, Ottawa's authority over pipelines. He said whatever financial arrangement is reached will include protections for taxpayers. Feeling squeezed, Kinder Morgan, the U.S. firm behind the Can$7.4 billion (US$5.9 billion) project, suspended most work on the pipeline this week, saying the row is creating undue risk for investors. "This is a series of discussions that are happening in Calgary, Toronto, Houston and NY".

Horgan gave no sign of relenting.

Without that access to other markets, Trudeau said that that the billions being lost to fund things like health care "is not something we can accept as a permanent anchor on our national prospects". Another 600 permits have yet to be requested by Trans Mountain. "We don't believe that's the Canada that most Canadians want to live in".

The leader of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs has also vowed that the project will not proceed.

But the hit to the economy if the pipeline isn't built could have equally devastating effects at the ballot box, and Trudeau needs Alberta aboard to meet his worldwide climate commitments.

At a press conference following the meeting, Notley said that the "constitutional crisis" she says B.C.is creating costs almost $40 million a day.

"We are feeling a lot better about it", said Notley.

"The approval process for this pipeline. featured the most extensive consultation with Indigenous communities across this country that we've ever seen", he said.

The prime minister didn't shy away from criticizing Horgan. "We will continue to do things that are responsible to get this pipeline built".

Trudeau emphasized that the project represented a "vital strategic interest" for Canada and insisted, "It will be built".
