"That multiplied over 365 days a year, you get a pretty good idea of the $18 to $20 billion dollar hit the Canadian economy is taking because of protests and people blocking pipelines in this country", he said.

Horgan's court reference - to see if B.C. has the constitutional authority to pass a regulation to limit flows of diluted bitumen in the new pipeline pending additional scientific research on how to clean it up a potential spill - spooked Kinder Morgan investors.

For Kinder Morgan, Moody's said the federal decision was credit positive because it removes "significant risk" for the company and eliminates the need for another $4.9 billion in costs "and the uncertainty of construction scheduling and completion given the opposition to the project from the province of British Columbia, environmentalists and some First Nations".

"This change in protester tactics results in no repercussions for those persons breaching the injunction order (including those blocking access), but has a significant impact on RCMP resources", LaFreniere said.

Indigenous groups in the Fort McMurray region of Alberta have put governments on notice they want to buy an equity share in the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline.

The existing pipeline has, for decades, carried an increasing volume of Alberta oil to tankers on B.C.'s coast, and to refineries in Northern Washington.

"Even if the federal government restarts work on the expansion, there's no guarantee that the political and legal conflict will end".

The federal government is said to be already shopping around the pipeline it bought this past Tuesday.

"This is the mischief we are here to address", Killoran said, adding protest organizers are committed to stopping Trans Mountain trucks from entering construction sites and aim to blockade other locations where the company might store equipment or have contractors working on the project.

Federal government investments in major energy projects include the Syncrude oilsands mine in Alberta and the Hibernia oilfield offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, said David Finch, a Calgary-based oil and gas industry historian and author.

"The upside is that things get done sooner", he said.

But what makes all this insider speculation most ridiculous is the Liberals' assertion that not only can they find a buyer, but they can find one who will give taxpayers a nice little return on investment. "That would be my criticism".
