The Thompson Local News


Our Member of Parliament is not happy with the Federal Government’s decision to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline.

 

Niki Ashton spoke in the House of Commons earlier this week, and asked the Prime Minister why it took so long for ‘government’ to help the people of Little Grand Rapids escape a forest fire earlier this month. She also asked why the Liberals are investing in the pipeline rather than spending that money on all-weather roads and “improving the lives of First Nations people in this country”.

 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded to the remarks, saying that the two issues (the government’s investment in First Nations and the pipeline) have nothing to do with each other. He added that it would be easier for the government to invest in First Nations if the country wasn’t “losing $15B every year because we can’t get our resources in any other market than the United States for our oil”.

 

The Federal Liberals announced Tuesday that they had reached a deal with Kinder Morgan for the proposed Edmonton to Vancouver pipeline at a price tag of $4.5B.

 

The purchase of the pipeline came under fire from both the Conservative Party and the NDP after the deal was announced.
