Feds to announce Tuesday morning that Trans Mountain moving forward

Pipeline company Kinder Morgan has ceased all non-essential spending on the project until it receives assurances it can proceed without delays, setting a May 31 deadline for those guarantees.

The NDP government in B.C. came to power a year ago - supported by the Green Party - after an election campaign in which it committed to working against the pipeline expansion owing to environmental concerns. "Nonetheless, what I would suggest is it's probably premature, although we appreciate them sharing their arguments with us in advance".

She and other Alberta ministers made similar statements when Bill 12 was introduced, debated and passed, leaving no doubt that "its goal was to authorize the government of Alberta to reduce supplies of crude oil, natural gas and refined fuels to cause economic harm to British Columbians in order to punish and put pressure on B.C".

The federal government will announce its decision Tuesday morning that the Trans Mountain pipeline will move forward - with public money on the table.

As the clock ticks down until the May 31 deadline over the controversial Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline project, which will triple the amount of tar sands being transported from Alberta to the British Columbian coast, the campaign against its expansion is spreading overseas.

"It's not just about the spills, it's not just about the orcas", said Graham Clumpner one of the paddlers with the Mosquito Fleet: "The bigger issue that we are all facing is climate change", he said.

"I understand Premier Notley's frustration, I share her frustrations", Moe said. Courts won't rule until they see regulations, Notley said. "They are still reserving the right to play legal rope-a-dope until the cows come home".

The power-sharing agreement between the New Democrats and the B.C. Greens included a vow to: "Immediately employ every tool available to the new government to stop the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline".

"We only have a number of days until the deadline Kinder Morgan has set and so Premier Notley's only priority is ensuring the pipeline gets built", Ms. Oates said.

At the rally yesterday, one of the speakers was Cedar George-Parker from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, who have been leading the community opposition to the pipeline in British Columbia.

Morneau has already openly discussed the third option: Kinder Morgan going ahead with the project, with Ottawa covering any losses incurred.
