Pipeline No Fate Accompli

The look was unnerving, like watching a baseball team celebrate a no-hitter in the 5th inning.

For the second time in the on-going pipeline process, the Notley government was celebrating last week when the feds revealed they will buy the Trans Mountain pipeline. It all seemed very premature, especially in light of opposition mounting daily to the twinning of the original pipeline built in 1953.

Protest groups are not folding their tents, they’re digging in for even greater disruptions thanks to generous donations from foreign groups intent on curtailing Canada’s oil production. Acting like putting the taxpayer on the hook for the project has solved everything is naive and the furthest thing from the truth.

As baseball great Yogi Berra once said, “It ain’t over ’till it’s over. And the Trans Mountain saga is nowhere near over.
