Kinder Morgan wants to anchor us to their poor business decisions and leave Canadian taxpayers and businesses to pick up the tab. That’s a bad deal.
We can’t put all our eggs in one basket. Kinder Morgan already benefits from billions of dollars in subsidies for their industry. We’re also already on the hook for externalized liabilities such as pollution and oil well clean up.
If the government puts their thumb on the scale with a taxpayer bail out they will undermine investor confidence and stifle other sectors of our economy that we need to fuel economic development now and into the future.
Let’s move forward with a common sense plan for economic development in the 21st century.
