I don't really expect much of a response but I'd still like to know where each candidate stands on the trans mountain pipeline and why
The John Horgan NDP government supported a number of court challenges of the Kinder Morgan (later Trans Mountain) pipeline because the project was seen as too environmentally risky for British Columbians. One of the primary concerns was the immense increase in tanker traffic through the Salish Sea and into Burrard Inlet. Also, there have been a sad record of pipeline spills both in Canada and the U.S.
The courts have ruled against these challenges and the TMX project is underway.
