The sticker price Kinder Morgan put on the Trans Mountain pipeline when it entered negotiations with the federal government last year was $6.5 billion. Hence, finance minister Bill Morneau and his team thought they’d scored a bargain when they sealed the deal at $4.4 billion.

With Sheila Malcolmson’s big win in Nanaimo’s by-election yesterday, the BC NDP are no doubt walking a little taller today. After all, the governing party rarely wins by-elections. The BC Liberals poured significant resources into the riding. Malcolmson was behind in the polls. The Greens ran a strong candidate. For a safe NDP riding, many in the party weren’t really sure if they could pull it off this time.

Mid-mandate, this victory extends the tenure of the NDP minority government. Some in the party are probably feeling pretty confident.

Members of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN) in northern Alberta voiced its opposition to the Syncrude Mildred Lake extension project on Monday at a hearing in Fort McMurray, Alta.

“This project here is just going to continue to add to more problems we are having today,” said Chief Allan Adam of the ACFN.

“It isn’t going to get any better.”
