The Council of Canadians is planning a large rally against the Trudeau government's promise to indemnify Texas-based Kinder Morgan's controversial pipeline.
Earlier this week, CBC reported, "Canada is willing to write Kinder Morgan — or anyone else who steps up to the plate — a cheque to ensure the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion gets built despite British Columbia's opposition, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Wednesday. Morneau said the federal government is willing to compensate the pipeline's backers for any financial loss due to British Columbia's attempts to obstruct the company's Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. ...Kinder Morgan has threatened to abandon the project if a clear path forward isn't reached by May 31."
That article adds, "Morneau wouldn't say if there's a limit to how much the government is willing to spend to compensate the pipeline's backer."
