“Desperate, dangerous, delusional” – Responds to Morneau Kinder Morgan Announcement

Following today’s press conference announcing Justin Trudeau and his government’s plan to use public money to indemnify the Kinder Morgan pipeline, Aurore Fauret, Canadian Tar Sands Campaign Coordinator with, issued this statement:


“Let’s be clear – today’s announcement was a pledge to write a blank cheque, backed by public money, to a Texas oil company in a desperate play to bailout a pipeline that violates Justin Trudeau’s own promises on climate change and Indigenous rights. It’s desperate, dangerous and delusional, and it ignores the fact that opposition to this pipeline, in the courts, in the streets and all across Canada, is only going to grow. There’s no indemnity against that.”
