Conservative MPs demand answers on future of Trans Mountain

first_imgOTTAWA (NEWS 1130) — The federal Natural Resources Committee held an emergency meeting on Parliament Hill as the opposition demanded action from the Trudeau government on the stalled Trans Mountain pipeline.Last week, the Federal Court of Appeal tossed out the approval of the controversial project, which the government is purchasing for 4.5-billion dollars.Opposition MP’s like Conservative shadow minister on natural resources, Shannon Stubbs, forced this emergency meeting in order to demand answers and action from the Trudeau government.Stubbs is angry the Liberals used their majority on the committee to defeat her motion to launch a study on the state of the Trans Mountain pipeline. She says the government needs to explain what went wrong and what it will do to get the pipeline built.“They have no plan and they have no answers for Canadians,” Stubbs says. “[The Liberal party have to] outline immediately a concrete plan to ensure that the Trans Mountain expansion can go ahead.”Liberal MP Marc Serre indicates the opposition will not get any answers today.Liberals defeat the Conservative motion at the Natural Resources committee to study the court ruling on Trans Mountain pipeline and have Ministers appear to explain the next steps #cdnpoli— Cormac Mac Sweeney (@cmaconthehill) September 4, 2018“We’re taking the appropriate time to review the decision and access the next steps,” says Serre, adding the feds are still committed to the project that is supposed to ship diluted bitumen from Edmonton to Burnaby Mountain for overseas exports.Liberals on the committee say the government needs time to study the decision before announcing next steps. It’s not clear if the government is considering an appeal.NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, on the other hand, says the whole project should be turfed.“The review process is flawed on a number of grounds,” Singh says, singling out the federal court’s findings that there were inadequate consultations with Indigenous communities and not enough examinations of the risks to the B.C. coast.Speaking to NEWS 1130 after a transit announcement in Surrey, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doubled down on his previous statements on the Trans Mountain expansion.He adds consultations with First Nations and addressing environmental issues are not about appeasing the courts, but about demonstrating that Canada can get its resources onto global markets “in the right way.”“This is all about whether or not we can continue to be a resource exporting nation,” Trudeau says.“As we said from the very beginning, you can’t make a choice between the economy and the environment. You have to do them together, and that’s exactly what we have been focused on and we will continue to do even more of.”— with files from Sonia Aslamlast_img read more
