Canada PM to act on pipeline crisis in days to come -province

Trudeau said that during the meeting today with the two premiers, he said that the federal government will use its authority to resolve the impasse.

Following a meeting between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, B.C. Premier John Horgan and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, Trudeau is insisting that the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline is within federal jurisdiction and that Horgan's government has no jurisdiction to block it.

"They have to see that there are consequences", Kenney said, after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced new federal legislation is coming to reassert federal jurisdiction over the pipeline.

Even as his government struggles to deal with a pipeline crisis at home, one that has forced him to return to Canada on Sunday before resuming his travels to Europe, Trudeau pitched his country as a great place to invest, telling hundreds of business leaders "that big things can get done in Canada". The cabinet decided the project, which will build a new pipeline that runs parallel to an existing one but can carry twice as much, was in the national interest. Finance Minister Bill Morneau will begin private talks with Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd., the project proponent, to determine what financial supports could be provided, Trudeau said.

We will not be in his way. "But we can not force it; so, pass, shoot, pass, shoot, that's the normal thing to do". Mohamed Salah scored the second goal of the match in the 62nd minute to make the match 2-0.

"It is also why we are sending a clear signal to the worldwide investment community that big things can get done in Canada".

"Kinder Morgan's announcement on Sunday was unexpected", said a senior government official who declined to be identified given the sensitivity of the situation. But he said, "Canadians and people around the world know that we can not choose between what is good for the environment and good for the economy".

Mr Trudeau's Liberal government in 2016 approved the expansion project, aimed at helping landlocked Alberta ship its oil sands to the Pacific coast and then to overseas markets.

Hence why May 31 is also the deadline the company gave the government to restore investor confidence in the project.

Horgan emerged from the meeting Sunday showing no intention of letting off on his opposition to the pipeline.

The opposition has claimed that new policies introduced by the Trudeau Liberals, including a carbon tax and hefty new legislation aimed at altering environmental assessments for major projects, has already caused foreign capital to flee Canada.

"I believe at this point in the proceeding we had a fair and frank discussion, my obligation is to the people of BC and I'm going to defend that until I'm no longer the Premier".

"It has gone through the hoops and, quite frankly, if co-operative federalism means we never, ever, ever make a decision, well I don't think that's a co-operative federalism that Canadians think is in their best interests", she said. It's also sparked a dispute between the provinces of Alberta, which has the world's third-largest oil reserves, and British Columbia. But the hit to the economy if the pipeline isn't built could also have devastating effects at the ballot box.

The Liberals seem convinced only a small number of their 18 B.C. seats are at risk over approving a pipeline, but on Saturday, Quebec's minister for Canadian relations warned Trudeau it would be a mistake for Ottawa to ram through the project with no regard for provincial rules. Canadian oil producers have long suffered from a lack of available pipeline capacity to get their product to market, causing the value of Canadian oil to fall compared to producers in the US and elsewhere.
