Madam Speaker, we learned this week that the government plans to hide the massive total cost of the construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline. The private sector walked away from this pipeline, and the company already admits to growing construction costs of $13 billion.
The Liberals paid $1 billion more than market value for TMX. Total costs are now nearly $20 billion, making this the biggest fossil fuel subsidy in Canadian history. The government cannot be a climate leader while splurging money on pipelines.
Why is the government trying to hide the massive cost to Canadians?
