Trudeau must champion Kinder Morgan and uphold rule of law in face of violent protests

Rebel Staff

Justin Trudeau defied the odds, and probably even his chief adviser Gerald Butts, and approved the TransMountain pipeline expansion by Kinder Morgan.

The proposed project will expand capacity three fold and get around 900,000/bpd of our Alberta gold to tidewater here in Vancouver so we can finally begin receiving full value for our product as we open up export markets in Asia.

Despite all the reasons to approve this project, I acknowledge the tough decision it must have been for Trudeau and give him credit for taking such a large political risk on this polarizing issue.

With the significant increase in seats Trudeau and the Liberals saw in the last election, it would have been all too easy for him to reject this pipeline in an attempt to keep those gains, but yesterday during his announcement he spoke well, outlining clearly why this project is being approved and why it’s necessary for our nation.

While I disagree that our nation needs a carbon tax or that we should phase out coal to justify these pipelines, for now this decision should only be celebrated.

Prime Minister Trudeau and the Liberals have a chance to achieve something Stephen Harper and the Conservatives could not; to get construction of an export oil pipeline underway.

The key has always been getting our oil to new markets, and that is what this pipeline
will achieve.

Now we all have to hope that he and his cabinet will step up to this challenge and not let this pipeline die in a court of law or in the court of public opinion.

The Liberals need to champion this project and uphold the rule of law in the case of protesters turning violent or disruptive once construction begins.

We’re in this together now and we won't let a noisy minority get in the way of moving our nation forward and bringing Ethical Canadian oil to Asian markets.

if trudy legalizes pot, like he said er, promised, and gives it to ‘protesters’ free, maybe the shit-disturbers can be preoccupied, but actions will speak louder than um, ah, um derp, words.

Billy Howard—-WE need all 3 pipelines to our coasts. Maxine Bernier says that he can beat Trudeau next election. If he beats him, the pipelines will happen.

IF the pipeline is expanded (big IF), as JT has declared, it will be contrary to the opinion of his friend and mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson.
So how about “energy east” to compensate for nixing the Northern Gateway project? Sure, the mayor of Montreal is against it, but so what? I mean if he can defy the desires of Vancouver’s mayor, why not defy the Montreal mayor for a pipeline that is without doubt much more logical and beneficial to the Canadian economy than the KM expansion.

these pipelines will be held up for YEARS !!! protests and legal challenges we are seeing it now in Standing Rock !!! they have an evacuation ORDER but what are the authorities doing….NOTHING !!! IF THE LAW DOESN’T WANT TO DO THEIR JOB,GET SOMEONE THERE WHO WILL !!!! WE WILL SEE THIS UP HERE….JUST WAIT !!!

I think that’s exactly what will happen. What piss me off. are these oil companies that continue to supply fuel to useless eco terrorist outfits helping to cut their own throats.

Shell game by the Government, this will be played out constantly by the CBC and Tokyo Rose Media propaganda machine, while laws and bills are written and passed in secret, all the while promoting an Agenda that is not Canadian and against our freedoms.

Keep your eye on the ball.

The battle to get the TM pipeline built is just beginning. The revenues to the governments will be in the billions, not to mention the thousands of good paying jobs. It’s too bad that the protesters & some native chiefs are either too stubborn or too stupid to realize that this is a great opportunity for their people. No, instead all they have to offer is bias & more whining. I hope that Trudeau will have the backbone to speak up against the protesters if they become violent or continue to interfere with the pipeline & lay down the law, with consequences to be dealt with.
BTW, KM is the largest energy infrastructure in America & operate 85,000 miles of pipeline & 80 terminals.

I give Justin no credit whatsoever for this approval. Harper did all the ground work. Justin is no further ahead with ANY kind of ‘social’ licence. There is still no way ‘first’ nations will ever get out of the way. He is probably afraid that when Kinder Morgan get fed up waiting for the natives to get out of the way they will try to sue the feds. Now that he has approved it they would have a harder time doing that. . It’s the natives and environazis backed by foreign money who will kill this pipeline, and how is Kinder Morgan going to sue them? Justin is just covering his Butt and his behind. He knows that pipeline will be held up until Kinder Morgan declares ‘enough’ and attempts to sue to recoup some losses; which are extensive if this is all for nothing. Enbridge should sue as well. Justin is just doing damage control because he can’t put it off anymore.
Clark can blow it out her ear with her 5 extortion points.

The thing I’m wondering is as Conservative Interim Leader Rona Ambrose stated yesterday that, PM Trudeau’s federal Liberal Government is short of funds to be able to bring these pipelines through to fruition, is he going to run out of funds?
While – at the same time he has shut down a Pipeline that was in progress and Canadians have already spent money on it! there were 3000 to 4000 Jobs lost by shutting down Northern Gateway! That is such a waste but that is what Trudeau and The Liberals’ are famous for I guess!

Are these projects ever going to see the Light of day? Apparently there is strong opposition in the area the Pipeline is slated to go through in British Columbia?

Is the Asian market going to be interested in purchasing our Canadian Oil if it has a high price on it because of Justin Trudeau and the Liberals’ High Carbon Tax are we able to be competitive with other countries’ like Russia and Middle East?
Is Canada going to be in competition with Vladmir Putin’s Russian Gas Pipelines – don’t know if he has Oil Pipelines into China and Asia or not?

Now to see which puppet string is pulled next seeing as how Soros backs Trudeau and Notley and also backs paid protestors like at the DAPL project in the States and some of those paid protestors said they will be in BC to protest Kinder Morgan. This is quite the orchestrated chaos that stinks of the type of chaos that Globalists love and desire for advancing their positions.

When China purchased Nexen Energy the fate of a pipeline to B.C. was sealed. There is no way that China would tolerate not being able to ship its oil from Alberta to China. Being the overwhelmingly major shipper n the Vancouver port little Potato and Premier Clark had no choice. The retaliation if the line did not go through would seriously hurt the B.C. economy.

Now we can look forward to bussed in protestors funded by U.S. based enviro groups doing what they like to do.

Great another protest by a bunch of mellenial activist ingrates having melt downs over cow farts, and actual revenue generating jobs. Its high time to start kicking some asses back to their mommys basements and let the rest of us get back to work.

Trudeau has done all he’s going to do.

Kinder Morgan offered Jaytee a better deal.?

Trudeau wants to go down in history as doing something the PCs failed to do?

Jaytee was drinking some of his wife’s Bloody Mary’s?

Whatever it dose not make him any the less stupid, than what he already is.
