My bet is Justin will resort to tears… Carrots won’t do with John Horgan — it’s time for the Prime Minister to use the stick

As Prime Minister Justin Trudeau heads into a long-overdue meeting Sunday with the premiers of British Columbia and Alberta to resolve the Trans Mountain pipeline crisis, it’s important to remember one thing: British Columbia Premier John Horgan has no leverage and is all bluster.

Offering more carrots won’t do because Horgan will simply stomp all over them. Unfortunately, the Prime Minister’s only alternative is the stick — and he must tell Horgan he’s prepared to use it.

I stand by that.
