Opposition MPs on Trans Mountain Cost, Teck Frontier Mine

Speaking with reporters on Parliament Hill, Conservative natural resources critic Shannon Stubbs and NDP House leader Peter Julian comment on the revised projected cost of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Trans Mountain CEO Ian Anderson announced earlier that the construction cost will increase from an initial estimate of $7.4 billion to $12.6 billion, with a completion date of 2022. The MPs also face questions about the future of Alberta’s proposed Teck Frontier oilsands mine, which is awaiting federal cabinet approval. (February 7, 2020) (no interpretation)
