Tell the federal government to fix the broken pipeline review process
The federal system for reviewing major energy projects is broken. Last year, Prime Minister Trudeau and his cabinet approved the massive Kinder Morgan and Line 3 pipeline projects based on flawed reviews by the National Energy Board (NEB).
Canadians deserve an impartial national pipeline regulator, not a rubber stamp with little regard for environmental risks. Arbitrary review timelines undermine Indigenous rights while crucial evidence and the voices of Canadians are routinely shut out. Pipeline reviews are tainted by industry ties and conflict of interest allegations. Tar sands-expanding pipeline projects are approved without a climate test that aligns energy policy with Canada’s climate targets and the Alberta’s emissions cap.
Prime Minister Trudeau must fulfill his promise to reform the NEB and fix Canada’s gutted environmental laws before his government makes any more pipeline decisions.
Tell the government that all pipelines, including TransCanada’s Energy East, must go through a new, rigorous review that protects the environment, respects Indigenous rights, and allows all Canadians to have a voice.
