Trans Mountain costs are too high for taxpayers

The Parliamentary Budget Officer estimates expanding the Trans Mountain pipeline’s capacity will cost $9.3 billion if the project is completed by Dec. 31, 2021.Canadian Press/Jonathan Hayward

Ever since Trudeau bought the Trans Mountain pipeline from Kinder Morgan, taxpayers have been on the hook for its multi-billion dollar construction price.

This price has continued to rise, now reaching a whopping $16 billion.

With new polling showing public support for the pipeline plummeting, and global investors walking away from fossil fuel projects faster than you can say the words ‘climate change’ – politicians are particularly vulnerable to further pressure.

The numbers are clear: Canadians don’t want any more public money spent on this pipeline.

Sign the petition calling on the government to drop Trans Mountain once and for all, and invest our $16B in renewables instead.
