The Conservative party did not miss a beat after the recent announcement from Justin Trudeau that the Canadian government will be buying the Trans Mountain pipeline for $4.5 billion.

The finance critic points out in the following video that the Canadian government has gone from a position in which a private company was willing to invest and build this pipeline, to spending billions to buy it, then spending billions more to expand it, all the while facing more competition from that same previous investor.

Why This Matters

With oil being such an important resource, Canadians everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief to know that the project will continue. This success though does not remove the massive and glaring failure the entire fiasco has become.

If the Trudeau government are able to adequately change the tone on this subject they could become saviours, even after having caused the problem in the first place.

Or, it might just mean that if the project is cancelled, all the consequential losses will be billed to taxpayers in place of investors.

This is why attacks like this from the Conservative party are so important moving forward.
