Ever since Trudeau bought the Trans Mountain pipeline from Kinder Morgan, taxpayers have been on the hook for its multi-billion dollar construction price.
For almost two years now, the government has failed to provide any updates on the true cost of building the pipeline – a figure we know has been going up and up over the past five years, but can’t confirm by how much.
We knew more about Trans Mountain when it was owned by a Texas oil company than we do now that it’s in public hands. Private investors wouldn’t put up with this and neither should we.
At a time when we need to be investing in a rapid transition to a cleaner economy, this pipeline has become Canada’s largest fossil fuel subsidy. Canadians deserve transparency when it comes to the financial reality around this dirty project.
Sign the petition addressed to Prime Minister Trudeau and Finance Minister Morneau and demand they release the pipeline’s true cost to taxpayers.
