PM Announces Montreal Transit Funding, Comments on Trans Mountain Pipeline

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard announce the long-awaited extension of Montreal Metro’s Blue Line. The two leaders speak with reporters following the announcement. Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante and Quebec Transport Minister André Fortin also speak with media about the metro project.

The prime minister is asked about Kinder Morgan’s decision to suspend all non-essential activities and related spending for its Trans Mountain expansion project, citing continued opposition from the B.C. government. The federal government approved the project in 2016. (April 9, 2018)
