Trudeau dodges answering if Canada is on its last pipeline in debate 

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau was asked by CBC’s Rosemary Barton, in a longwinded question, if his government’s $4.5 billion purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline would be the last pipeline he would approve.

“Last fall the United Nations international panel on climate change stressed the need to act quickly to limit further global warming,” started Barton. “A report from Environment Canada says this country is warming twice as fast as the global average. You say you are committed to combatting climate change but your government proceeded with the purchase and approval of a new pipeline to the west coast. Given the timeline, and given what is at stake, should Canada not be moving more quickly away from further development of the oil and gas sector, and to that end, should the expansion be the last pipeline.”
