The federal government’s decision to purchase the Trans Mountain pipeline has drawn fire from the left and the right.

While some call the nationalization of the pipeline an indication of failed leadership and a failed process, other say the purchase does nothing to protect B.C.’s coast, or address broader issues like climate change.

Still others say the Liberal government had few options if it wanted to assure completion of a project that could generate billions of dollars in tax revenue, boost employment and actually fund carbon reduction efforts.

What do you think?

Was the federal government right to purchase the Trans Mountain pipeline?
