A Statement from Julia Levin, Environmental Defence’s National Climate Program Manager, on a new Parliamentary Budget Office update on the Trans Mountain Pipeline
Posted June 22nd, 2022 on Niagara At Large
Ottawa | Traditional, unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabeg People – Today’s update from the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) is the latest official report to determine that the Trans Mountain Pipeline has become a financially dangerous boondoggle.
The government has often justified the pipeline by promising that its eventual profits will fund clean energy projects; this is flimsy logic given the disastrous climate and environmental impacts of the project.
The PBO update shows this argument doesn’t hold water: there will be no profits, only financial losses for Canadians and more carbon emissions for the planet.
