Extreme weather fuelled by climate breakdown is exposing the vulnerability of key infrastructure in British Columbia and is reviving questions among environmentalists and residents about building the Trans Mountain expansion pipeline.
The International Energy Agency’s latest projection is casting new doubt on Canadian megaprojects like the Trans Mountain expansion that experts say should force a reckoning in the country’s oil industry.
As the federal election campaign nears its end, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is fighting off criticism from progressive environmentalists by trying to shift the focus back to Justin Trudeau’s climate record.
The costs of the Trans Mountain expansion project continue to soar, but with the company behind it increasingly opaque since Ottawa bought the pipeline, it’s difficult to say by how much, according to a new report from West Coast Environmental Law.
Nearly two dozen environmental and Indigenous organizations have signed an open letter calling on Trans Mountain insurers to drop the pipeline, warning the CEOs of major insurance companies that pressure will continue to mount until they do.
