Trudeau Puts Money Where His Mouth Is On Pipeline Dispute

"The Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion is a vital strategic interest to Canada".

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, who also attended the talks in Ottawa, said she was convinced the expansion would be built if the financial assistance deal could be worked out.

Sunday's meeting proved incapable of finding a solid solution, though Trudeau stated in a press conference following the meeting that the federal government is now engaged in conversation with Kinder Morgan about the financial security of the project.

Shortly after the strikes, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement condemning the use of chemical weapons in eastern Ghouta, where more than 40 people were killed and 500 injured - many of them children - on April 7.

"We've been fighting as hard as we possibly can to defend the jobs that Albertans and Canadians rely on, to advance our climate goals, and to support working families now and into the future", Notley said following the meeting with Horgan and Trudeau.

A fact-finding mission from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is expected to head to Douma. He called on Moscow to change course and join the West in seeking a more responsible regime in Damascus.

Horgan's getting some advice on that list from the Quebec government, which has a long track record of opposing any encroachment by Ottawa in areas of provincial jurisdiction.

"In the federal court that were involved in right now, that's a decision that were expecting within a number of weeks", Horgan said.

"It is also why we are sending a clear signal to the worldwide investment community that big things can get done in Canada". "This is a series of discussions that are happening in Calgary, Toronto, Houston and NY".

Horgan says Trudeau laid out "legislative and financial measures" to push the project forward, but he did not elaborate. "As soon as we have something to announce I promise you we will let you know". When Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sits down in Ottawa this morning with the premiers of British Columbia and Alberta it will be the first time the three biggest political players in the Trans Mountain pipeline predicament are in the same room at the same time.

But he said, "Canadians and people around the world know that we can not choose between what is good for the environment and good for the economy".

The couple and their daughter who lived there managed to escape with their cat before firefighters arrived, authorities said. The woman was taken to an area hospital, where she died early Sunday, a separate release from the fire department states.

Both TransCanada's Keystone XL - which will run from Hardisty, Alta., to Steele City, Neb., - and Enbridge's Line 3 - which links Hardisty to Superior, WI - should avoid the political pitfalls that have sunk Energy East and Northern Gateway and have put Trans Mountain in doubt, said Zachary Rogers, a research analyst at Wood Mackenzie. Construction on the pipeline expansion itself has yet to begin and needs to start by the end of May if the company's plan to get the oil flowing through it by the end of 2020 is to work.

Pence is in Peru instead of U.S. President Donald Trump, who was supposed to attend but chose to stay home and said earlier this week that he was prepared to "renegotiate forever" to get a good NAFTA deal.

"I'm quite confident that should these discussions end successfully, that the pipeline will be built - and that is good, because the pipeline is in the national interest".

"His damaging policies ... have only led to more uncertainty and instability in Canada's resource sector", Scheer said.

Trudeau then delivered a 10-minute address to business leaders from across the Americas encouraging them to invest in Canada, noting that the country has free trade agreements with dozens of countries around the world.

It was not immediately clear on Friday what specific issues the court hearing would address. On Monday, Cohen's attorney called the searches "completely inappropriate and unnecessary".

Trudeau's cabinet approved the pipeline in 2016, following an interim environmental review process that included assessing things such as the emissions that will be created from producing additional fossil fuels that will flow through it.
