Canada’s Trudeau zit klem in pijplijncrisis

April 16, 2018 - De Canadese premier Justin Trudeau zit in een politieke crisis rond uitbreiding van de Trans Mountain-pijplijn om 890.000 vaten olie per dag van de ingesloten teerlanden van Alberta naar de kust van de Stille Oceaan te vervoeren.

The C$7.4bn (US$6bn) expansion, which Trudeau says it is part of his plan to transition to cleaner energy, will create the equivalent of 37,000 direct and indirect jobs and $46.7bn in government revenues, according to operator Kinder Morgan.

But the project is fiercely opposed by British Columbia, many municipalities, some Aboriginal groups, and environmental activists concerned about possible oil spills.
