Pricing carbon and phasing out fossil fuels will drive up costs for households and businesses, but the transition is necessary and will become more expensive if it is delayed, the Conference Board of Canada concluded in a report issued earlier this week.

While some Indigenous activists gear up to fight expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline on the streets and in court, federal Liberal cabinet ministers say there's no going back on their decision to approve the $7.4-billion project.

Inspired by some of the tactics used by protesters at Standing Rock in North Dakota, the Secwepemc Nation, situated along the Trans Mountain route, said Wednesday it was preparing to build "10 tiny houses" in the path of the project's construction as a protest and with the hope of forcing a delay.

Stop KM rally AMANDA SIEBERT

The self-styled West Coast Protectors plan to meet there at 1 p.m.

The 2.5 million miles of oil and natural gas pipelines frequently leak and rupture, a 2012 ProPublica investigation found.

Subject: Kinder Morgan needs one permit - and we can stop it.
 

Friends, 

This morning we learned that the National Energy Board will allow Kinder Morgan to start construction at their Westridge Marine Terminal. But, Kinder Morgan still needs one crucial permit – a construction permit from the Port of Vancouver.
