Expert reactions to Trans Mountain purchase filter in

With a day under their belts to let the Federal Government’s decision to purchase the Trans Mountain pipeline sit, political experts reactions are beginning to filter in.

Pundits from all over the country are concerned over the strain this now places on the relationship between BC, Alberta, and the Federal government.

According to UBC professor Kathryn Harrison, the purchase could backfire both politically in BC, where the Liberals hold 14 seats, and environmentally worldwide.

While her colleague, professor Margot Young, an Indigenous legal rights expert, took a harsher stance, saying the moce has angered Indigenous opposition and could lead to more legal action.

Proponents and opponents alike are also expecting empowered protests, especially with the purchase coming in the wake of a spill from the existing pipeline earlier in the week.
