This is so misleading. A private company saw this a viable until the Liberals shut it down and were forced to buy it, or be sued.

These wishy-washy answers gives me the creeps the final costs will be much higher and with lots delay.

Politicians should never run a business. Smooth talkers never get anything done.

Who is the pipeline contractor that almost doubled the cost?...Is it SNC?..That would make sense.

It is all due to Trudeau and Liberal incompetence.
So are most things now. EDIT ie much higher cost, much less effective, much more taxes.

I would be surprised if Mr. Dress Up does not give away $12.6B of Taxpayer money before it returns from Africa. Buying a seat on the UN will cost the taxpayers of Cuckistan large.

The cost has inflated because the government (all governments) are inept at running a business efficiently.

Impossible. If you look at real costs of government projects, they cost usually at least 3 times more than the estimate. Some are 20 to 40 times, (e.g. Francophone games). 12.6 billion is a gross underestimate.

Phucking Liberals scare off all private investors and now taxpayers pay. How many of these billions are going to the Indigenous bands?

This project was set to be free when our government bought it they sold the tax payers out .
