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.

COP27 is over, and I am devastated by the magnitude of its failure.

Yet COP27 produced no commitment to phase out oil and gas production. No commitment to lower greenhouse gas emissions.

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