Recently Diane Francis scolded BC folks for not blindly agreeing with the Government approved , ill-conceived ,Trans Mountain Expansion Pipeline (TMEP).
Recall that PM promised to ‘listen’ and ‘use science’ when deciding…! He’s done neither . .
Yes, PM Trudeau is on the horns of a dilemma…Canada requires those export revenues desperately…but the PM can risk losing a few seats in BC…. and HOPEFULLY gain seats in Alberta….because of TMEP.
The law says that the Federal government is supreme when APPROVING interprovincial and international pipelines……unless the reaction in BC becomes too raucous…and it might ??
There’s still time for our leader to LEAD us out of this TMEP mess …and have everyone win…?
