B.C. can't impose environmental laws that could kill the Trans Mountain pipeline, court rules

It is good for Canada, and BC. Both economies will prosper, as will Alberta's.
Just our two clowns running the province don't see it that way, and so they tried to run interference.

The Federal government has a good number of their own apposed as well.
But Pierre's Idiot Child has said he will see this through.
He should. After spending billions of taxpayer's money to purchase the damn thing!

Speaking of spending our sheckles, apparently the fed's are thinking of ponying up once again.
In the name of "reconciliation" we may well be on the hook for paying for 51 % of it again, to give away... :shock:

“Invitations have gone out to all Indigenous communities — over 300 in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan,” said Harrie Vredenburg,a board member with Project Reconciliation, a company that has set up shop in downtown Calgary in order to help negotiate and facilitate a 51 per cent equity stake purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

Delbert Wapass, the former chief of the Saskatchewan, Thunderchild First Nation, serves as Project Reconciliation’s executive Chairman. Any Indigenous group that wishes to participate in the purchase bid is welcome, he said, and would not be required to invest any money of their own.

“What we’re proposing is zero risk for First Nations,” Wapass said. “We’re not asking them to invest anything other than their time to look at what’s being proposed.”

That part of the equation ain't great IMHO.

Thanks for the explanation Nog, I'm still trying to wrap my head around all of the issues y'all are dealing with without knowing the regs or quite honestly the lifestyle. But one things for sure is that you should be proud of the spokesman you are. :clap: :thumbup:

One never knows whether to post about this stuff or not.
Back of my mind often whispers No-one wants to know...
But then the other part of me says They SHOULD know.

Apologies to the board if anyone thinks this is getting out of hand from my end...

Cheers,

I love this quote! You can’t say “payoff” any clearer than that!!!
