The Liberals bought the project for $4.5 billion maintaining that getting resources from the tar sands to market is crucial to the Canadian economy.

But a coalition in B.C. that includes the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs and West Coast Environmental Law, wants to know exactly how must the construction of the Trans Mountain expansion is going to cost Canadian taxpayers.
