Now It's Time for Trudeau to Come Clean - At Last.
Since the Trudeau government decided to throw $4.5-billion to take Kinder Morgan off the hook on the Trans Mountain pipeline, it's time we got to see the books.
Let's start with the order books. Kinder Morgan said two-thirds of the expanded pipeline capacity was already sold. Show us the books. Let's see who has actually signed up for that capacity. This is a 30-year investment so there better be a lot of really long term contracts, 15 to 20 year deals.
C'mon Junior, show us the money. Then, when you're done that, show us this supposed "world class" clean up programme you've got in place. Every detail. Let's see what you're doing to us.
Then you can show us what you're going to do with all that revenue this pipeline will be generating, the profit. You've already linked this pipeline to Canada's path to a green future. The only way that can happen is if these legendary profits are earmarked for advancing that green future, i.e. not just tossed in the federal treasury that's already neck deep in deficit.
It's time to come clean, Justin. And that's long overdue.
