If the B.C. pipeline dies, Kinder Morgan will have wasted millions of dollars and the more than four years it has spent obtaining approvals for the expansion, including agreements with the 41 Indigenous communities closest to the pipeline route.

The demise of the project would likely also prompt a foreign-investment chill in Canada. If the project dies, Kinder Morgan stands to lose the approximately $1 billion it has already spent on it. The company will also have wasted the more than four years it has spent obtaining approvals for the expansion, including agreements with the 41 Indigenous communities closest to the pipeline route.-The Star

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hauled out not one, but three of his 2015 election slogans last weekend when he held his pipeline-crisis meeting with the premiers of Alberta and British Columbia.

He talked of “hope and hard work” and declared that “better is always possible.” Trudeau even urged the warring provinces to see their rivals as neighbours, not enemies — just as he advised Liberals in 2014 when he was presiding over his first party convention as leader.-The Star
