Money for renewables, not pipelines
Justin Trudeau’s $4.5 billion purchase of Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion project is a shameful use of our tax dollars. Not only is this pipeline in direct violation of the constitutional rights of Indigenous peoples in Canada, the bottom line is that there is no viable market for bitumen transported by tankers. It’s not a product the world wants to buy.
HSBC and other big players know this and are divesting from Alberta’s tar sands. It’s shocking to see Paris Agreement “rock star” Trudeau as someone all too willing to protect the interests of a Texas corporation. Imagine what $4.5 billion could do to help transition Alberta toward being a leader in renewable energy?
Trudeau needs to do the math and help Alberta with a plan for a green energy future.
