This was a perfect opportunity for the federal government to echo the NEB's announcement and confidently state that there is more than just light at the end of the tunnel for TMX.. It would have been reassuring to Albertans if it came from Justin Trudeau's mouth. Of course, he cannot do that because it would appear that he is too much in favour of pipelines and this is an election year and all. Something tells me that all of the will be in a row sometime this year but it will be too late to re-start construction. So another year will be squandered.
