Incompetence and secrecy.
In a recent interview, Bill ‘Moneybags’ Morneau continued the pattern of the Trudeau government refusing to give details to Canadians on any plan to get the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion built.
At every step of the way, the Trudeau government has done nothing but mouth empty slogans, while the pipeline expansion gets farther and farther from happening.
While talking to CTV, “Morneau refused to offer any specifics on a budget or timeline, saying that “today is not a time for me to get into details.”
“We don’t have exact timelines. We do need to appropriately come to the best solution. I’m working through that. And when we have a more definitive timeline, of course you’ll be among the first to know. There will be that transparency, we’re just not able to describe something that has not yet been concluded.”
That’s a lot of words to say nothing at all.
So, after all this time – with months leading up to this crisis – Morneau can’t give details, is still “working through” the issue, and can’t offer any timeline.
What has the government been doing for all this time?
This incompetence – and refusal to take decisive action to get the pipeline built – adds more credence to the idea that the government doesn’t actually want the project to happen.
With the Kinder Morgan CEO casting more doubt on whether the expansion is feasible given the current political climate, every day the government fails to take real action is another day Canada is further at risk of becoming a less prosperous and more divided nation.
