Re: “Nothing has changed; Trans Mountain project will continue to drag on,” May 26
The headline to Gillian Slade’s editorial says it all and proves she is wrong. The key word is “continue.” The Trans Mountain project was about to end and now the federal government has ensured that it will continue. Gillian wrote: “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has the power to solve the crisis. He could take a stand and enforce the building of the pipeline.” How? By waiving his magic wand?
The B.C. court challenges are wrong in law but they will have to play out. They are nothing but a nuisance and delaying tactic but a tactic that free enterprise investors have no stomach to persevere with. With ownership by the people of Canada, construction can continue while court challenges and protests rage on. The prime minister has always said that this pipeline will be built and the federal government has used the power available to it to ensure that will happen. Yes, everything has changed, even the prospect of building an eastern pipeline. Success begets success.
