TC Energy Corp. is expecting what it calls a "material increase" in the cost of its Coastal GasLink pipeline project.

The Calgary-based pipeline company said in an investor presentation Tuesday that it is facing significant cost pressures in Western Canada related to labour costs and shortages of skilled labour, along with contractor underperformance and disputes.

Denial, lies, and now gimmicks--the body count doesn't phase them, as long as the profits keep rolling in. Future intergalactic travelers may highlight humanity as the only species to knowingly make itself extinct.

In BC, 2021’s heat, fire and floods cost the economy $10.6 billion to $17.1 billion, a report calculates.

When Don and Mary Nowoselski moved from Dawson Creek in northeast British Columbia to the Creston Valley 30 years ago, they were looking for a little less winter.

A bit of land tucked near the U.S. border in a fertile valley in the province’s East Kootenay region seemed to fit the bill, and the couple settled into a new life that included an expanding cherry orchard operation.

Canada wants to be the last country producing fossil fuels, even if it kills us

COP27 is over. The UN summit took one big step forward on climate justice with the creation of a loss and damage fund for the most impacted nations, while taking two enormous steps backwards by failing to call for a phaseout of all fossil fuels.
