Join MPs Nathan Cullen (Skeena—Bulkley Valley) and Randall Garrison (Esquimalt—Saanich—Sooke) to discuss how we can stop Trudeau's disastrous Trans Mountain pipeline.
The Trudeau government has made it clear that it intends to try to force through expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, but still can’t say how it will fulfill its obligation to respect the inherent, treaty and constitutional rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The failure to understand the constitutional duty to consult and accommodate, or to understand the internationally recognized right of free, prior and informed consent was a major factor in the Federal Court of Appeal’s ruling that quashed the proposed expansion.
The Trudeau government has also failed to produce any credible plan for addressing the Court’s other key criticism: the failure to fully consider the impact on BC’s coastline and marine life, especially Southern Resident Orcas.
Instead, the Trudeau government has announced that it is doubling down on using the same deeply flawed Stephen Harper National Energy Board process that failed the first time, and somehow expects a different result. Additionally, Liberals still have no plan to deal with an inevitable and devastating diluted bitumen oil spill.
