Trudeau-Nanaimo

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is bringing his cross country town hall tour to Nanaimo on Friday, where he may face questions over his support for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. The Prime Minister told an Edmonton, Alberta radio station yesterday that the project is in the national interest and will go ahead despite B-C’s efforts to block it. B-C announced earlier this week that it plans to ban increased shipments of diluted bitumen off its coast until it can determine that shippers are prepared and able to properly clean up a spill — a move Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has called that an unconstitutional attempt block the Alberta-to-B-C pipeline.
