After a series of speeches in front of the Visitor's Information Centre, hundreds of marchers made their way along Wharf Street to Centennial Square, where they met many more participants. Canada has the world's third largest oil reserves but 99% of its exports now go to refiners in the U.S., where limits on pipeline and refinery capacity mean Canadian oil sells at a discount.
Dozens of protesters have been arrested since protests escalated last November. The expansion would be a twinning of the existing 1,150-kilometre pipeline between Strathcona County near Edmonton in Alberta and Burnaby on the Pacific Coast in British Colombia. He said he could not state exactly what additional costs will be incurred by the Canadian public to build the expansion, but suggested a toll paid by oil companies could offset some costs and that there would be a financial return on the investment.
The British Columbia Supreme Court dismissed their petitions aimed at quashing an environmental assessment certificate issued by the province for the project under the previous Liberal government. It's also contingent on assurances the twinning of the pipeline will be completed.
By buying the pipeline, the government of Canada has essentially agreed with Kinder Morgan - a private company could not build a fully authorized project in a timely and commercially effective manner.

Houston-based Kinder Morgan earlier halted essential spending on the project and said it would cancel it altogether if the national and provincial governments could not guarantee it.

Critics on both the right and the left have criticized the move, the right saying the government should not be using taxpayer money, with the left saying the project is futile and flies in the face of clean energy goals.
Unfortunately for the federal Liberals, those in BC who voted for them in the 2015 federal election are largely opposed to their decision to buy the pipeline, 49 per cent opposed vs. 40 per cent support.
Though the expansion has received federal approval, it has seen numerous delays because of local opposition and legal challenges. "This kind of project belongs in the private sector, and it should never have left it".
