Authors Say The Study Could Be Pivotal In Stopping DAPL.

The federal government and the Dakota Access Pipeline’s parent company, Energy Transfer, misled the public, used substandard science, utilized poor technology, and broke the law by not cooperating with impacted Indigenous Nations. That’s according to a new report that also criticizes the Army Corp of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency for not completing a realistic analysis of the environmental damage the pipeline could cause.

A transit user advocate says raising fares discourages passengers from returning to the transit system, which is down 50 per cent of pre-pandemic ridership numbers

Beginning July 1, it is going to cost more to ride transit in Metro Vancouver.


With little discussion at a TransLink board meeting on Thursday, the transit authority approved an average 2.3-per-cent fare hike, bucking a nationwide trend to combat low ridership by freezing fees after two years of the pandemic.

Two groups of First Nations have signed option agreements to acquire a 10-per-cent equity stake in the Coastal GasLink pipeline, a natural-gas project under construction in northern British Columbia.

The agreements, announced Wednesday, are exercisable when the pipeline comes into service and are subject to customary regulatory approvals.

For the First Nations involved, the potential equity stakes are one of the first opportunities they have had to own part of a project that crosses their traditional territory.

Jail time for Trans Mountain pipeline protesters violating a court injunction will start to increase if disobedience continues, a B.C. Supreme Court judge said Feb. 15

Two men involved in anti-Trans Mountain pipeline protests in Burnaby were jailed Feb. 15 after pleading guilty, while a third goes to trial in June after a not-guilty plea.

All were charged with criminal contempt of court for allegedly breaching a court injunction aimed at preventing disruption of work at the federally owned Burnaby Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion project (TMX).
