Fact checking Trudeau’s pipe dream

Letters

Editor:

Folks on the Sunshine Coast enjoy living along our beautiful waterways. The trans mountain expansion is riddled with unanswered questions regarding both its safety and its estimated cost.

We deserve transparency! After all, as ‘shareholders’ we now own it. I don’t believe for a second that it will be safe. No one can guarantee that, and the risk is too great. Still the government hasn’t answered other pressing questions. I want to know how much has already been spent, what the expansion is estimated to cost, how it will be funded, and how much money it will bring in to Canada.

Kinder Morgan couldn’t raise the money to fund the expansion and walked away from the investment. How will our government do better? We should be investing in clean energy and not stepping backwards into dirty old energy. Canadians have called for climate action and our vision of action doesn’t include dirty oil.

And before you ask; I cycle (years up and down the Coast), walk, bus, drive a Yamaha XT 250 and just retired so you can’t make assumptions.
