BC won't be driving much if the Feds decide to stop allowing USA coal
from being shipped out of BC ports.

Alberta is only an NDP government until the next election.
Ditto with BC.

Did the Alberta writer of the above piece happen to mention that every other Canadian taxpayer will be contributing $810. to the Kinder Morgan pipeline?

"Investment is recovering" because Trudeau is bailing out foreign oil companies with our money. Alberta needs to be put to pasture for some time. They've alway had the highest wages, the lowest taxes and the loudest demands when they screw up.

Did they mention that if it wasn't for the Watermelon BC government - green
on the outside, red on the inside - private industry would be building the
pipeline, and it wouldn't be costing taxpayers anything?

There are many idiots in BC who drive gas guzzlers. Where are they going to get their fuel?
Maybe they could drive to AB for their fuel. Ahaaahhhaaahahhhaahaha

Maybe British Columbians will just convert to natural gas in their vehicles. We've got a whole lot of it - so much, in fact that Alberta buys from us - $3.3 Billion worth, last stats:
__________________________

Alberta buys a substantial amount of B.C.’s burgeoning natural gas production, along with other liquid hydrocarbons that come with drilling in the energy-rich Montney shale formation that straddles the provincial border and surrounds Dawson Creek, Fort St. John and Hudson’s Hope.

B.C. sold Alberta some $3.3 billion worth of natural gas in 2014, the latest trade figures available. B.C. Stats data for the same year report shipments of natural gas to Alberta at 23.6 billion cubic metres, a little more than half of the province’s production.
________________________

Seems BC is already doing a whole lot of that converting:

Arvind Ramakrishnan, a senior manager with Fortis BC, says hundreds of mainly-commercial vehicles are currently fueling up at natural gas stations across the province.

“Given that more than 50 to 70 per cent of these costs are fueling costs, we believe there is significant advantages for considering gas.”

He adds some commercial fleets have switched because natural gas is typically half the price of diesel.

“About 800 vehicles are committed on compressed and liquefied natural gas in the last, probably, seven to eight years thanks to provincial government and specifically, the gas reduction regulations.”

While it’s mainly used to heat homes or businesses, Ramakrishnan says there are currently 19 fueling stations across the province and more are being added as needed.

“These stations are by and large in most of the strategic corridors where most of these trucks currently travel.”

Heading into the summer, he says natural gas is also better for overall air quality because, at 37 per cent, the transportation industry is responsible for the largest share of BC’s greenhouse gas emissions.

TransLink recently added new natural gas buses to it’s fleet in Surrey.
