Federal decision to buy Trans Mountain pipeline

Various UBC experts weighed in after the federal government decided to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline.

The Canadian Press interviewed Kathryn Harrison, a UBC political scientist, and David Tindall, a sociology professor and an expert on climate change politics.

Harrison said this could backfire politically in B.C. and globally on the environmental stage. Tindall discussed how Premier John Horgan has gained support in B.C. for his approach to the pipeline debate.

The CP story appeared in the Financial Post, The Province, and Calgary Sun. Harrison also spoke to the Globe and Mail on the same topic.

Margot Young, a UBC law professor, spoke to the Vancouver Sun about legal uncertainties associated with the purchase.

Business in Vancouver spoke with Richard Johnston, a UBC political scientist, who said Alberta’s premier Rachel Notley had the most to lose of all political leaders involved.

The Georgia Straight cited an article by Simon Donner, a UBC geography professor and climate-change researcher, about the impact of the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion.
