Even a transatlantic flight to the United Kingdom wasn’t enough on Wednesday for Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau to dodge the mounting opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline in his home country.

‘Underestimating the Opposition,’ Trudeau Doubles Down on Kinder Morgan Pipeline Push..

April 16, 2018

Just a week after environmentalists in Canada celebrated the decision by Kinder Morgan to halt most work on an expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline, citing mounting opposition from activists and regional leaders, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged to provide financial and legislative assistance to enable the project to proceed.

“If Trudeau believes he can ram this pipeline through, he is misreading both the constitution and the electorate, while underestimating the opposition on the ground.”
—Mike Hudema, Greenpeace

“The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is of vital strategic interest to Canada,” Trudeau said after an emergency summit with the premiers of Alberta and British Columbia on Sunday. “It will be built.”

Canadians should oppose Trudeau government’s support for air strikes in Syria..

April 16, 2018

The U.S. has once again flagrantly violated international law. Without UN approval, they launched dozens of airstrikes on Syria.

Ottawa immediately supported the U.S. bombing. In a statement, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, “Canada supports the decision by the United States, the United Kingdom, and France to take action to degrade the Assad regime’s ability to launch chemical weapons attacks against its own people.”

Kinder Morgan ultimatum reveals fraudulence of Trudeau’s climate deal

April 12, 2018

Last time I checked, Alberta’s oilfields had not been seized by marauding bands of eco-warriors. But you might be confused into thinking so by the inflamed rhetoric coming out of Ottawa and Alberta.

We’re told that the country faces a national crisis over the resistance to the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline, following an ultimatum by Houston-based Kinder Morgan that it’s suspending long-stalled building plans unless it’s assured a green light by May 31.

Canada rallies behind US in its incendiary anti-Russia offensive

April 11, 2018

Just hours after unverified reports of a poison gas attack in Syria emerged Sunday, Canada’s Liberal government issued a statement provocatively blaming the Assad regime and its ally Russia for “war crimes.” Following hot on the heels of Ottawa’s expulsion of four Russian diplomats over the alleged poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal, and Ottawa’s claim that Russia has “interfered” in Canada’s “democracy,” the Trudeau government’s response makes clear that it is in the frontline of the US-led charge to war.

‘This Is Huge’: Opposition Forces Kinder Morgan to Halt Trans Mountain Pipeline

April 10, 2018

“This is a sign that organizing works, and it could well be the beginning of the end for this dangerous pipeline,” says 350.org’s Clayton Thomas-Muller.

When it comes to Palestine, many Canadian politicians are silent..

April 6, 2018

Even our Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland — whose spokesperson explained her silence on the U.S. moving its embassy to Jerusalem with the reason, “The minister does not make statements about world events before they happen” — didn’t say a word about the killing of 17 Palestinians by the Israeli army.

However, Minister Freeland was eloquent in speaking out about the expulsion of four Russian diplomats from Canada, because of the alleged Russian poisoning of an ex-Russian agent and his daughter in Britain. There is not an investigation into the poisonings yet, no report yet and still she was quick to take strong actions and words. But on the killing of Palestinians, despite the flagrant casualties, the pictures on social media, the dead bodies shot by the bullets, the denouncing of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, she kept silent.
