TransCanada says it has signed project agreements with all 20 indigenous communities along its Coastal GasLink pipeline route from Northeast B.C. to Kitimat.

Support for the agreements comes from both traditional and hereditary leaders in the communities, the company said in a news release Thursday.

“This is an important milestone for the Coastal GasLink team,” Rick Gateman, president of the Coastal GasLink Pipeline Project, said in a statement.

Between 2011 and 2016, fracked oil and gas wells in the U.S. pumped out record-breaking amounts of wastewater, which is laced with toxic and radioactive materials, a new Duke University study concludes. The amount of wastewater from fracking rose 1,440 percent during that period.

Environmentalists are using the wildfires raging across northern California to push the governor and state lawmakers to ban oil and natural gas drilling, fight Trump administration regulatory rollbacks and mandate the use of more green energy.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), one of the most prominent activist groups, tweeted Thursday the record-breaking Carr Fire should convince California “to double down on our convictions on climate” and “fight” the Trump administration rolling back greenhouse gas rules for cars.

Government’s subsidies, lax rules provide the resource that keeps the bitumen flowing.

In the past year, an energy dispute for the ages has played out in Canada, culminating in the federal government announcing that it will buy an aging oil pipeline for $4.5 billion and then twin it with a new high-capacity pipeline that would move massive amounts of diluted bitumen from Alberta to the British Columbia coast.

BERLIN – Since the Paris climate agreement was signed in 2015, too many policymakers have fallen for the oil and gas industry’s rhetoric about how it can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Tall tales about “clean coal,” “oil pipelines to fund clean energy” and “gas as a bridge fuel” have coaxed governments into rubber-stamping new fossil fuel projects, even though current fossil fuel production already threatens to push temperatures well beyond the Paris agreement’s limit of well below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
