BC judge expands pipeline injunction as protesters use 'calculated' defiance

Canada to Buy Kinder Morgan Oil Pipeline in Bid to Save Project - Details Trudeau costs us for his energy-sector failings

However, Killoran said there is nothing hypothetical about Trans Mountain's intention to protect its work sites while continuing a project that the federal government has approved.

"It needs to be a world-class project ... it needs the best Canadian workers", Cochrane said. It's also contingent on assurances the twinning of the pipeline will be completed.

"So now when we're moving to this new phase where we're actually buying pipelines, that certainly isn't moving forward with any of the commitments that many Canadians want to see".

Kinder Morgan CEO Steve Kean said the company had already spent more than $1 billion on the pipeline expansion.

Meanwhile, an analyst warns the continued delays in pipeline construction are hurting the Canadian economy. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau first proposed to indemnify the project from risk, but ultimately chose to purchase it outright as the May 31 deadline neared.

The judge went on to say that although the people have a right to make their views known, they do not have the right to protest in a way that is blocking the lawful work of the pipeline workers.

But the note adds that it's unlikely that an acquisition would allow it to offset the benefit from the $7.4-billion expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline.

"If Kinder Morgan didn't think they could build or operate a pipeline in Canada, what other company will be prepared to step up?" he said.

"It does not matter who owns the pipeline", said Horgan.

By way of asserting its resolve to keep the project moving ahead, the government said it would provide funding for the 2018 construction season through loan guarantees. "Our government is determined to defend British Columbia's interests within the rule of law and in the courts".

Still, there wasn't much of an increase of protesters in Burnaby on Saturday.

There may also be positives from Ottawa taking over the project, including that the government may be more focused and sensitive than a private company to take into consideration the views of stakeholders, including of First Nations, said Speers, who teaches courses on public-sector management. Kinder Morgan had threatened to pull out of the project, which will triple capacity on the pipeline between Edmonton in Alberta and Burnaby in British Columbia, because of environmental and political opposition.

The Provinces of British Columbia in April asked the B.C. Court of Appeal to decide the province has the power to restrict increased heavy crude shipments to its coast due to oil spill fears.

Now, Justin Trudeau has made a decision to use taxpayer money to buy the entire pipeline. "And the way things are going, Ottawa might even have trouble finding a buyer for the pipeline down the road", said Moreau. "We are absolutely shocked and appalled that Canada is willingly investing taxpayers' money in such a highly controversial fossil fuel expansion project", Grand Chief Stewart Philip, president of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, told the Toronto Star.
