Trudeau to talk Trans Mountain with BC, Alberta premiers — Suddenly Sunday

The federal government needs more face time with the main players in the Trans Mountain pipeline impasse to push the controversial expansion project forward, says Finance Minister Bill Morneau - a sentiment his boss obliged in dramatic fashion Thursday, moments before jetting off to Peru.

Pallister said the National Energy Board and federal cabinet reviewed the project and determined it was in the national interest.

"We will be considering all options". "The Prime Minister will be returning to Ottawa following his visit to Peru to convene a meeting on Sunday, April 15 with the Premiers of Alberta and British Columbia to discuss next steps for moving the Trans Mountain Expansion project forward", said spokesperson Eleanore Catenaro.

Horgan said his government is strictly "following the rule of law" in its opposition to Kinder Morgan's pipeline, and has been issuing permits to the company as requested.

Later, the arrested leaders were taken to the Cantonment police station and were released. "It is a sad state of affairs". Congress President Rahul Gandhi said that the Government should intervene in such cases of rape happening in the country.


Horgan has pledged to do whatever it takes to kill the pipeline; earlier this year, he floated the idea of a regulation that would limit how much oil could flow through it. Ottawa has jurisdiction over pipeline projects, but a legal challenge on that score would mean more delays.

On the other hand, maybe Horgan stands defiant in steadfast defence of B.C.'s coastal environment and its people.

Kinder Morgan stopped non-essential spending on the $7.4 billion dollar project Sunday because of opposition delays.

Trudeau summoned Horgan and Notley for the meeting over the escalating dispute.

The impasse has become one of the most hard political predicaments to date for the Trudeau government, which is being squeezed between those who accuse it of not doing enough to get the expansion built, and critics who don't want to see it built at all.

The Alberta government will introduce legislation on Monday created to put pressure on B.C., including the right to cut shipments of oil and gasoline, driving up pump prices.

"We're doing it in a lawful manner and there's nothing to stand down from". At least, until he's removed from the path of the pipeline by a court ruling and left to say, "We did what we could". "We're putting forward a reference; I welcome Alberta and Canada to join us".

"John Horgan came to office nine months ago on an explicit promise to use every tool available to stop the pipeline", Kenney said.

Horgan implied on Monday that the Notley government and B.C. opposition Liberals are overstating the effect of his government's stance when he said, "One investment project does not an economy make".
