Fort McMurray Metis wants in on the Trans Mountain expansion and here’s why


The Fort McMurray Metis Nation in Alberta wants in on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

The 1,100 km long twinning of the existing pipeline is on hold – but that’s not stopping the community located northeast of Edmonton to be ready.

Leaders in the community see the pipeline as a way to pay for infrastructure traditional methods of financing can’t handle.

Chris went up to Fort McMurray to talk about the pipeline project and what it can do for the community.
