Unions break with AFL-CIO, protest Dakota Access Pipeline

OAKLAND, Calif. (KTVU) - Hundreds of union members and supporters gathered outside of a Wells Fargo branch in downtown Oakland this afternoon to call on the bank to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline, an oil pipeline project in North
Dakota that has become a flash point for environmental and Native American advocates.

"No Dakota Access Pipeline, water is life," the protesters chanted as they arrived, referring to concerns that the project could pollute drinking water in the area, including on land occupied by the Standing Rock
Sioux tribe.

Trudeau’s announcement of “world-leading” marine safety measures will satisfy B.C. Premier Christy Clark’s insistence on “world-leading” oil spill response.

Approval for the Kinder Morgan pipeline will bring Alberta Premier Rachel Notley onside with a national climate plan and inoculate Trudeau against his father’s fate in “the West.”
