Liberals/NDP win next elections confirmed.


Trudeau cabinet approves Trans Mountain, Line 3 pipelines, rejects Northern Gateway

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet colleagues signed off on two major pipelines today, projects that will pump nearly a million more barrels of oil a day from Alberta's oilsands to global markets, if they are constructed.

Ottawa gave the green light to Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline and Enbridge's Line 3, while it rejected Northern Gateway.

Trudeau is speaking with reporters and taking questions in Ottawa. CBCNews.ca is carrying the press conference live.

Later, Trudeau will meet privately with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.

Notley is expected to speak with reporters on Parliament Hill at 6:30 p.m. ET.

That was petros who can't handle the fact that Trudeau did what Harper couldn't.

He got social license.

Harper didn't lie like Trudeau. If you call lying to the electorate a victory, you have more issues than People magazine.

Sludge that is worth $6 less than it costs to make it. Shipping plastic pellets would make more since and a spill is an easy cleanup.

This is exactly what Trudeau promised.

It perfectly highlights the balance on the economy and the environment and how he needed to fulfill one to get the other. And it contrasts very well with Harper's failure for ignoring one and failing the other.


This is as slam dunk as you can get brother.


Now we can comfortably laugh at the Americans.

No one wants to further pollute our land, but we need jobs man and we truly need to depend much less on the USA. This will do it, if it's not a ruse by JT to kill Northern Gateway in favour of a scam. If the Liberals think they can put a veil over Canadians eyes with a delayed ruse, they are dumber than they look. They need to start this project ASAP and not wait until the next election, or they will be out on their asX.

Saying no to NG was an absolute no-brainer for the government, rem and gave them some moral authority to say yes to Line 3 and Kinder Morgan.

Neither of these projects will be quick off the drawing board. There are 157 different environmental restrictions that will be put in place before work either continues or begins. The easiest project, IMO will be Line 3 as it will replace older existing pipe.

Can't they make it up by harvesting lots and lots and lots. of carbon tax from us? Doesn't taxing the crap out of us make our CO2 production all better?

He needs pots of money, more. There is a "carbon tax" that would do a dandy job of filling up the general revenue well. Besides, there is nothing that Liberals like more than punitive things used for social engineering. Ontario is chock-ablock with things like HOV lanes that are meant to change our behaviour.

The only reason oil is low is to pummel Putin. If you think we have it bad, Russia is 100X worse off.

He should have never f-cked with the Ukrs.

No one takes targets seriously.

They're just put in there to get governments to do something rather than nothing.


We have the pipelines and carbon pricing.


We're set.
