CALGARY — The future of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion was cast in doubt on Sunday as Kinder Morgan Canada suspended all non-essential activities and related spending on the project in the face of mounting opposition from British Columbia.
With the company citing its decision largely on the B.C. government's legal challenges to the pipeline and the need to protect its shareholders, the federal and Alberta governments pushed Premier John Horgan to abandon his promise to do whatever his government can to stop the project.
"The government of Canada calls on Premier Horgan and the B.C. government to end all threats of delay to the Trans Mountain expansion," federal Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr said in a news release. "His government's actions stand to harm the entire Canadian economy."
In Edmonton, Premier Rachel Notley said Alberta would consider taking on an equity stake in the pipeline if Kinder Morgan investors are considering backing away.

  1. What a bunch of phony posers they all are. Rachel and Justin pretend to be kind of upset to make it look like they kind of support the pipeline that their dumb voters do not want. Hogan is pretending he does not want it but he would be happy if Justin forced it through because then he could say I fought against it. And if Hogan would suddenly say OK Rachel and Justin would wet their panties.
