Pipelines: Honour Indigenous rights and climate commitments

The National Energy Board has been holding hearings into two pipelines—TransMountain and Energy East—that will carry oil from the oil sands. Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr and Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna have announced interim measures to supplement these hearings.

Moderator Jordan Cantwell wrote to Minister Carr recently “to express concerns about the Energy East and Trans Mountain pipelines with specific reference to Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples and our commitment to address global climate change.”
