Canada's Trudeau set for emergency summit on pipeline crisis

Canada's Trudeau set for emergency summit on pipeline crisis

Horgan said he reminded Trudeau that his pledge of reconciliation with Indigenous communities is not aided when there are Indigenous communities that don't support the Kinder Morgan project. "We only find ourselves here [on Sunday] because of his demonstrable hostility to Canada's energy industry his cancellation of the Northern Gateway pipeline, his killing of the Energy East pipeline by changing the regulatory rules mid-stream, his surrender to Barack Obama's Veto of Keystone XL and his two years of inaction on the Trans Mountain Pipeline".

Kinder Morgan is threatening to pull out of the project by May 31 if the provinces and federal government do not reach an agreement, but Trudeau is hoping Finance Minister Bill Morneau will be able to "remove the uncertainty overhanging the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project".

A number of First Nations chiefs have said Indigenous rights have been forgotten in the inter-government quarrelling over the pipeline.

Trudeau emerged from a meeting with the Alberta and B.C. premiers Sunday to tell reporters that the federal government is set to provide substantial financial backing to Texas-based Kinder Morgan in order that the pipeline, planned to stretch from Edmonton, Alberta to Vancouver, B.C., will be constructed.

"The federal government, along with the government of Alberta, has commenced discussions with Kinder Morgan to establish a financial relationship that will eliminate investor risk", Notley said. Approval came in consultation with the previous B.C. Liberal government, which gave its consent to the project after its own conditions were met.

Political scientists were happy to see there was no federal bullying, no threats to withhold transfer payments aimed at infrastructure projects in B.C. for instance.

"I don't think we would be in this current situation if the British Columbia government hadn't continued to emphasize its opposition to the project", Trudeau said.

The federal government can and will do more on the pipeline's potential environmental impact, he added.

"Unfortunately, over the course of nearly a year, they have not specifically put forward proposals on how they would like to see us improve the oceans protection plan", said Trudeau.

Horgan blamed the lack of specifics on the dispute itself.

"[Trudeau] said the federal government will moving with legislative and financial measures in the days ahead", Horgan said.

Except Indigenous communities, he added, who as usual were not at the table. Dilbit spilled into Michigan's Kalamazoo River from an Enbridge pipeline in 2010 cost billions to clean up, with parts of the river closed for years afterwards.

"Alberta has promised to release legislation this week but it's not clear what that's about", she said.

The prime minister didn't shy away from criticizing Horgan.

"His damaging policies. have only led to more uncertainty and instability in Canada's resource sector", Scheer said, describing an energy sector that is now convinced that "Justin Trudeau does not want their business in Canada". He said government investment in the project would do nothing to solve B.C.'s continuing opposition.

"B.C.ers and Albertans are not opponents; they are neighbours", the prime minister said.

Many in the energy industry are concerned about whether quarrels over jurisdiction and increasingly vehement protests mean any new pipelines can be built in Canada, which sits on the world's third-largest proven reserves of crude and is the single largest exporter of energy to the United States.
