Trudeau’s six unanswered questions on Kinder Morgan expansion

The Tyee quoted Kathryn Harrison, a UBC political science professor, in an article about the federal government’s ministerial panel report on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project proposed by Kinder Morgan.

“The economic analysis underlying the Trans Mountain proposal does not take into account the potential for policy changes to impact global demand for oil, particularly Canada’s relatively expensive and carbon-intensive oil,” she wrote in her submission to the panel. “It is not credible that policies affecting demand for oil will remain stagnant for the 20-to 30-year life of the proposed project.”
