Montreal – Upon learning about the changes to TransCanada’s Energy East proposal, Aurore Fauret, Energy East organizer with 350.org issued this response.
“Whether it’s TransCanada’s Energy East filing, or Kinder Morgan’s pushing for the Trans-Mountain pipeline at the National Energy Board in Calgary today, we know that neither project can be built if this government is going to have a shot at keeping temperature rise below 1.5ºC. That’s why today we’re launching the ‘People’s Injunction’ to stop Prime Minister Trudeau and his government from breaking their first big climate promise and allowing these two pipelines to proceed at the National Energy Board without considering their climate impacts and without listening to community voices – especially First Nations. If Canada wants to be taken seriously on the world’s stage, then the first step is keeping their climate promises here at home.”
