VIDEO: Kenney Says Canada is a Pushover at the UCP Peace River Pipeline Town Hall
Singh, who doesn’t currently hold a seat in the House of Commons, is now running in the federal byelection in Burnaby South, a community where many have deep concerns about the pipeline and its expansion. Voters go to the polls Feb. 25.
Singh said Ottawa should be “open to no” after its second round of consultations with First Nations.
Last August, the Federal Court of Appeal quashed licensing for the $7.4 billion expansion project, telling the Trudeau government it would have to do further “meaningful” consultation with First Nations and that concerns about increased tanker traffic had not been adequately addressed.
