As the federal and Alberta governments continue to pull their hair out over the B.C. government’s stand against Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and tanker project, it’s important to point out, as we’ve been doing for years, that the pipeline company doesn’t have the consent of all First Nations along the route. In fact, many of them are strongly opposed to the project.

Despite what you hear from pundits and politicians, the constitutional rights of Indigenous people are not some secondary part of the Kinder Morgan saga.

Imagine if decades from now a student of Canadian political history is digging into the Kinder Morgan pipeline saga. What kind of picture would she get from scanning the news databases from April 2018?

A judge is asking B.C.’s Attorney-General Ministry to take over the case of Kinder Morgan protesters who have been arrested for allegedly violating a court injunction.

Last month, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Affleck issued the injunction restricting protests at Kinder Morgan’s controversial Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project in Burnaby. Since then nearly 150 people have been arrested.

Vancouver—Experts aren’t surprised by Kinder Morgan’s decision to pull back spending on the Trans Mountain expansion, saying it’s “highly unlikely” the pipeline will be built in the face of enduring resistance and limited demand.

After a years-long battle with B.C. municipalities, First Nations and environmentalists, and now the premier — shaking investors’ faith —the company announced it would stall all non-essential spending Sunday.

“There’s a lot of strategic stupidity here,” said regulatory lawyer Bill Gallagher.

Energy giant Kinder Morgan has blinked in the face of relentless opposition from British Columbia to its plans to build a major oil pipeline.

The Texas multinational energy company announced on Sunday that it was suspending all non-essential spending on its Trans Mountain expansion project, threatening to cancel it if it fails to reach an agreement with B.C. and other stakeholders over how to proceed.

Kinder Morgan has suspended all “non-essential” spending on its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion due to opposition from the British Columbia government, issuing an ultimatum that it won’t commit any more dollars to the $7.4-billion project unless it can get agreement from the province to stand aside by the end of May.
