Prime Minister Justin Trudeau linked Indigenous reconciliation and the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline Tuesday as he met with a group in British Columbia that monitors construction of the project, including a chief who told Vice News that he denied the extent to which humans were causing climate change.
A day of action saw protests at the offices of some Liberal MPs, including Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould's constituency office in Vancouver, against the federal government's offer to spend $4.5 billion to buy pipeline assets from Texas-based energy giant Kinder Morgan.
"No deal ... no buyout." A speech that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau could have given if he'd said 'no' to Kinder Morgan is imagined by 'Mitchell Beer, publisher of The Energy Mix, an e-digest on climate change, energy, and post-carbon solutions.
Pipeline opponents in B.C. rallied in Whistler and Burnaby Mountain on Saturday the wake of the federal government's announcement that it would purchase the Trans Mountain pipeline for $4.5 billion in taxpayer funds.
Two executives at the Canadian unit of Texas-based Kinder Morgan are poised to cash in with $1.5 million bonuses after Ottawa offered to bailout their west coast oil pipeline system and expansion project, according to a new filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
Texas-based Kinder Morgan has scored another legal victory after the Federal Court of Appeal rejected a request to consider new evidence that allegedly showed the Trudeau government rigged its review of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.
