Will TransMountain pipeline landowners wind up with "tiny houses" on their property?

Will TransMountain pipeline landowners and other energy corridor Canadians along the possible TMX project wind up with "tiny houses" on their property

This is the latest stripe of anti pipeline activism being encouraged by the current political climate.

Vandalism is already a well-established tactic among Canadian pipeline protesters.  Such acts can put landowners -- who live and work, with their families, along the line 24/7/365 -- at risk.

There is more uncertainty around TMX than ever before.

Will Ottawa keep or sell the project?

Will Ottawa mothball the expansion portion?

Will Ottawa shut the line down entirely?

Nobody knows.

What we do know is that until a decision is made and property rights are protected, pipeline landowners along TransMountain should be sleeping with one eye open.
