Canada talking to pipeline company about aid to solve crisis

Canada talking to pipeline company about aid to solve crisis

Kenney said in recent days the federal government has said everything's on the table to ensure construction, yet we aren't getting closer to getting this critical project built.

The Liberals seem convinced only a small number of their 18 B.C. seats are at risk over approving a pipeline, but on Saturday, Quebec's minister for Canadian relations warned Trudeau it would be a mistake for Ottawa to ram through the project with no regard for provincial rules.

But the hit to the economy if the pipeline isn't built could also have devastating effects at the ballot box.

At a news conference held shortly after Sunday's meeting, Horgan insisted the discussions did nothing to end his ongoing efforts to block plans to expand an existing diluted bitumen line between the two provinces.

Horgan, Notley and Trudeau met on Parliament Hill in hopes of finding a solution to the impasse between the two provinces, which is threatening to kill the expansion project.

OTTAWA-A high-profile meeting between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the premiers of Alberta and B.C. over the future of the contested Trans Mountain pipeline is underway on Parliament Hill. Horgan said they continue to disagree on energy and will proceed with a court battle against the project. "My responsibility is to defend our coasts and to defend the interests of British Columbians, and I'll do that until I'm no longer the premier", he said.

Horgan says Trudeau laid out "legislative and financial measures" to push the project forward, but he did not elaborate.

Holdovers complete the top five, with Warner Bros.' " Ready Player One " in fourth with $ 11 million in its third weekend. That's despite new horror competition from Blumhouse's Truth Or Dare , which looked to target more of a teen audience.

"It was a useful meeting for all three of us, candid discussions but also a genuine sense of optimism and confidence in Canada", Horgan says, maintaining his objections to the major pipeline project.

"Canada supports the decision by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to take action to degrade the Assad regime's ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against its own people", Trudeau said in a statement Friday night.

Trudeau's cabinet approved the pipeline in 2016, following an interim environmental review process that included assessing things such as the emissions that will be created from producing additional fossil fuels that will flow through it.

Trudeau has argued repeatedly his government has put in place the environmental protections and policies needed to reduce the risks of an oil spill, and that building the pipeline to get Canadian resources to market is necessary for the Canadian economy.

Notley has said Alberta could buy an equity stake in the pipeline, or even buy the whole thing if necessary.

Kinder Morgan Canada said it would not comment on Trudeau's remarks "until we've reached a sufficiently definitive agreement on or before May 31 that satisfies our objectives".

The sit-down, the first face-to-face between the two leaders since November, comes at a critical time, with Canada, Mexico and the USA all looking for a breakthrough in the ongoing effort to update the North American Free Trade Agreement - and Trump's wild-card trade strategies doing little to clear the air.
