Let's hope so. Then this pipeline can get built and all of the enviro-lunatics that want to destroy the economy can move to Venezuela.

I agree with you mj; if the Feds truly supported this project they could (and should) simply override all the local and provincial objections.

By trying to "play both sides of the fence" they risk losing the support of everyone on all sides of this argument. It's time Trudeau comes clean and stands up for what he believes in, instead of lying to everybody about what his true intentions are.

Looks to me like the feds are too gutless to force the issue so they appoint a 'panel' to do the dressing down for them, thus not offending anyone because in this kinder, gentler and all inclusive Canada we now have that just won't do. Pipeline will be built, no question. Tree huggers, stomp your feet all you like but it won't help.

I have always said JT picked this pipeline to go ahead because he thought BC would stop it. I do think if it is stopped it will fuel the Western Separatist, Many here will say who cares, go pound sand, empty threats etc. But I belive that this pipeline has more riding on it then people think.

Actually, this makes some sense. The NEB as the approval body is too close to the issue. The federal Cabinet made the ultimate approval decision.

Having an "arm's length" dispute resolution and compliance panel seems quite reasonable.

Jim Carr is doing the BC NDP and Derek Corrigan a big favor by heading in this direction. It provides them a way out of their stupidity. Will they be bright enough to accept that way out? We'll see. In demovictions Derek's case - I doubt it.

I disagree HG; at the end of the day "the buck stops" with the Federal Government. The final decision is theirs, as it should be.

This is no longer a decision based on facts, but one based on politics and emotion. Which means it has to be elected officials who decide, not government appointed panels.

Whichever way Trudeau jumps, as PM he needs to be accountable for the decision made. Not simply try passing the buck to someone else.
