Broken – the only word to describe what happens to everything this government touches

Today, we are learning of yet e are learning of yet another $3 Billion loan guarantee to complete the Trans Mountain expansion, so that the Liberal government can sell it. That brings the tab to a whopping $31 billion for a project the private sector was perfectly willing to build before the government got in the way.

I say to this Prime Minister – You broke it, you bought it, you broke it again, so get out of the way so Conservatives can fix it.

They didn’t have to buy it, if they had not broken the regulatory approval process in the first place!

This list just gets bigger.

  • Northern Gateway
  • Energy East
  • Teck Frontier
  • 17 LNG terminals

And just in today, Bay du Nord. After the proponents miraculously jumped through all of the regulatory hoops, the Liberals dragged out final approval to a point that the private sector – again – put a project on hold.

The cost to complete the TMX expansion in the past decade has quadrupled to $31 B. Why these cost increases? It’s not all because of inflation and supply chain challenges.  It’s incompetence.

I say to this Prime Minister – You broke it, you bought it, you broke it again, so get out of the way so Conservatives can fix it.
