[The Trudeau government stole this money from us. They stole it from our public services and our hospitals and our schools. They stole it for Kinder Morgan shareholders. All this money to build a pipeline on stolen land in a time of climate crisis. https://twitter.com/kateljacobson 8:01 AM - 31 Jan 2019]

Sale would be TransCanada’s biggest divestment yet

TransCanada Corp. hired RBC Capital Markets LLC to manage the sale of its majority stake in the $6.2 billion Coastal GasLink pipeline in what would be the company’s biggest divestment yet.

If TransCanada moves forward with a sale, joint venture partners could end up owning as much as 75 per cent of the conduit, the company said in a filing to the National Energy Board dated Jan. 25.

Some Wet'suwet'en members said the RCMP illegally prevented them from entering their own territories, violating the nation's rights.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is relying on an aggressive and outdated Western Canadian crude oil supply outlook to re-approve Trans Mountain’s expansion. Trudeau’s outlook seriously contradicts the supply forecast oilsands producers support as commercially viable.
