Protesters descended on northern Minnesota over the weekend in an attempt to stop construction of Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline, which critics say would deal a devastating blow to the water table and lock in unneeded fossil fuel infrastructure.

OTTAWA — Federal officials were asking themselves how many pipelines does Canada really need in the days after U.S. President Joe Biden cancelled Keystone XL.

The query was posed in a briefing note from Natural Resources Canada and released to The Canadian Press under federal access-to-information legislation.

TMX pipeline work

June. 3, 2021

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — An order stopping tree cutting and grass mowing across the entire Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project was issued Thursday by the Canada Energy Regulator, the agency that enforces safety and environmental guidelines for pipeline projects across Canada.

A statement released by the CER said it issued the order to immediately stop all clearing activity "to prevent harm to nesting birds in the pipeline project’s right of way and to ensure Trans Mountain is correcting any issues it has in relation to contractor oversight and management."

Today, the Prayer Circle and allies held off TMX work for an entire day at Brunette Interchange!
Thanks to everyone who came out to support. We arrived at 6:15am to find no workers or security around, and were able to easily access the site. Some security and/or workers were spotted throughout the day, but it was fairly uneventful until 4pm when 7 RCMP cruisers pulled up. We were read the injunction, and chose to leave and not be arrested.
