The federal government has vowed to build the project despite its legal challenges!!!!!
The sticker price Kinder Morgan put on the Trans Mountain pipeline when it entered negotiations with the federal government last year was $6.5 billion. Hence, finance minister Bill Morneau and his team thought they’d scored a bargain when they sealed the deal at $4.4 billion. But it looks increasingly like he may bought a cat in a sack.
We have built a large base, but we need to reach more people to share accurate information and provide a forum for discussion about the meaning of that information for climate change and the immediate issue of Kinder Morgan. That can't be done without your help. We need you donation to boost our readership base through social media. We need to work together to change policy and affect the coming elections. We can't do it without you. Our main information and discussion platform is https://www.facebook.com/BurnabyPipelineWatch/
Behind the spin, the reality is clear — taxpayers and the environment lose in the pipeline debacle.
Money from controversial sale to government will be returned to shareholders
We haven't won yet! We need to unite to win.

The Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) represents all of BC’s local governments. Next week, on September 10-14, this body will have its annual conference – and this year there is something special on the table.
Local governments will vote on whether to demand that 20 of the world’s biggest fossil fuel companies pay a fair share of climate-related costs in BC communities.

Far from issuing a death warrant for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, the Federal Court of appeal wrapped up a lengthy judgment this week with suggestions on how Ottawa could save the controversial project.
The only people who should be shocked are First Nations. How many times must they fight the same battles for well-established rights?
