This month, as the world’s diplomats gather in New York to review progress in implementing the United Nation’s vision of fair and sustainable economic development, Canada wants its own record front and centre. Last year, Prime Minister Trudeau told the UN that the sustainable development goals are “as meaningful in Canada as they are everywhere else in the world.” This year, Canada has put itself forward to be one of only a handful of nations that will be subject to a voluntary review during the UN’s High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.

VANCOUVER—Over 100 First Nations and environmental supporters on canoes, kayaks, boats and rhibs formed a flotilla in front of the Trans Mountain Terminal in Burnaby on Saturday.

More than 70 watercrafts paddled from Cates Park beach in North Vancouver to the Trans Mountain Westridge Marine Terminal across the water, stopping at the terminal fence for Indigenous elders to hold a water ceremony with drumming, singing and prayer.

That seemed to be the message last December when NDP premier John Horgan announced "with a heavy heart" that the project would be completed.

But the legal skirmishes haven't ended.
