Statement from Andrew Wilkinson on today’s decision by Kinder Morgan

 

VICTORIA (April 8, 2018) – Leader of the Official Opposition Andrew Wilkinson released the following statement in response to Kinder Morgan’s decision to suspend non-essential spending on the Trans Mountain Pipeline:

“The premier has let his activist environment minister ignore the rule of law as this government picks winners and losers by willfully ignoring the constitution.

“Investors – large and small – interested in our province need to know the provincial government will treat everyone fairly and equally. 

“This is a project that has received federal approval and falls under federal jurisdiction, yet the NDP used it to pick a trade war with Alberta and start a confrontation with the federal government.”
