Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is confident that his approval of Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain expansion will withstand legal challenges from First Nations who say they were not adequately consulted on it.

The federal government "went through all the right steps" before giving the green light to the hotly-contested pipeline project, he told National Observer in an exclusive interview on Tuesday afternoon.

Lost in the heated arguments over Kinder Morgan's proposed Trans Mountain pipeline is this simple fact: more than a quarter of the bitumen flowing through it will end up as pollution spilling into our oceans — one way or the other.

All the bitumen that doesn't spill from pipelines or tankers gets burned, ending up as carbon pollution dumped into our environment. Over one quarter ends up in the oceans, acidifying them for millennia to come.

A former senior minister in the Stephen Harper government has come up with a novel argument for forcing British Columbia to accept Kinder Morgan's $7.4-billion Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project.

Jason Kenney, now the leader of Alberta's United Conservative Party, has launched a petition urging Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to "invoke the 'declaratory power' of the Constitution to declare BC's actions as being against the national interest".
