In a new hard-hitting Council of Canadians report, economics and pipeline expert Gordon Laxer reveals special provisions in the new trade deal that will allow the federal government to continue to subsidize the Trans Mountain (TMX) pipeline.

This pipeline, which will ensure expansion of the climate-polluting tar sands in Alberta, will not only send crude to export on fragile coastal B.C. shores, it will put thousands of waterways, communities and drinking water sources at risk along its route. Forests and lands will be bulldozed and razed to build some of it – even through First Nations where Indigenous peoples have said “no.”

As Laxer reveals in the Billion Dollar Buyout report, you and I will be on the hook for paying for all of it. Costs for the pipeline are expected to soar as high as $10 billion. Read his recent Toronto Star op-ed on this and hear from him directly in an upcoming webinar on June 26 at 5:30 p.m. EST (Online registration now open.)
