Head of B.C. Indian Chiefs calls Trans Mountain project a ‘stinker’ that will worsen climate change

 

The Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs joined together with the Mayor Elect of Vancouver to say that the National Energy Board needs more time to conduct a review of the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

Grand Chief Stewart Phillips called the project a ‘stinker’ that will make climate change worse.

Indigenous leaders in B.C. are threatening future court challenges of the National Energy Board’s review of the marine shipping effects of an expanded Trans Mountain pipeline.
