There are many questions yet to be answered regarding the construction of the Kinder Morgan Pipeline.
On Sunday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with BC Premier John Horgan and Alberta Premier, Rachel Notley.
The two provinces have butted heads for what seems like an eternity and the federal government finally decided to step in.
A representative of the Wet’suwet’en office, Chief John Ridsdale says it’s a scary thought when the Prime Minister essentially approves the continuation of the pipeline with such heavy opposition to the cause.
“It can’t be elected officials or businesses that make these decisions. We as first nations people, British Columbians, and Canadians cannot have our voices muffled due to money.”
A press conference for the opposition of the Kinder Morgan Project was held in the lower mainland today, something Ridsdale says he was keeping a watchful eye on.
“I’m curious to see what area chiefs and mayors will say. To me, nothing has changed. The risks are still there. We as a democratic society have the right to oppose and stand up for our environment and what we believe in.”
Ridsdale’s biggest concern following the meeting between Trudeau, Horgan, and Notley is that nothing concrete was done about the issue.
Moose News is awaiting a response from Northern BC Kinder Morgan supporters and will update this story as it happens.
