Until these appeals have been exhausted, Kinder Morgan will be faced with uncertainty. Still the numbers such as they now stand suggest B.C. premier John Horgan would very much be tossing the dice if he tried to use his opposition to the project to translate his minority government into a majority in a snap election. "We spent a lot of money on them in lawyers and consultants".
The release was added confirmation that B.C. First Nations are as divided as the rest of the country, and indeed the province as a whole, over the Trans Mountain project. "Building this pipeline would make Trudeau's claimed climate leadership a laughing stock".
"The dead goat lies at the doorstep of the prime minister", said Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, president of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs.

Wednesday, Kean is obviously unimpressed the B.C. government is pushing ahead with its latest court case, trying to throw another wrench in the works.
Pressure is mounting on the federal and provincial government after Kean's comments surfaced.
What is Kinder Morgan's problem? But no matter the impact, Mr. Horgan is not breaking any rules. And to the extent new pipeline capacity and higher netback prices lead to more Alberta oil production, the resulting increase in emissions will be largely offset by reduced emissions elsewhere.
Kenney asks if the premier actually thinks the situation looks better now, after Kinder Morgan announced they've stopped spending more on their pipeline and might walk away in just over a month.More news: 2 deputies killed in Gilchrist County
Canada's largest integrated energy producer Suncor Energy Inc., which has committed to shipping its oilsands barrels on the expanded Trans Mountain pipeline, is also concerned that Alberta's law to throttle back oil shipments to B.C. could affect its customers. Schneider is skeptical if there might be room for a compromise to be worked out between the provinces and Ottawa.
"We are considering a number of financial options to ensure that the Trans Mountain expansion is built, up to and including purchasing the pipeline outright if it was to come to that", she said in a statement on Tuesday. "The Alberta premier has yet to deny this", said Schneider.
The signatories write that they stand in solidarity with the Coast Salish First Nations and other Indigenous communities that are opposed to the pipeline and envision a future for Canada that moves away from a dependence on fossil fuels. "And yesterday we see our premier telling Horgan that she didn't intend to "act on" the legislation introduced today (Monday)".
In response, B.C. Attorney General David Eby is saying they'll take Alberta to court - that these actions are unconstitutional. I think we have so much to be gained through interprovincial trade, and what we've got - as any global trade person will tell us - we have more barriers inside this country than we do with other countries. "We're making sure that we're engaging in a way that is as fulsome and comprehensive as possible. Let it totally explode, and then 'this doesn't work, we need something different'".More news: Allardyce tears into Everton fan survey
Both the province of Alberta and the federal government have made the right pronouncements.
