Treaty Rights and Pipeline Wrongs (531)

The Trudeau government announced approval for the TransMountain (Kinder Morgan) pipeline this week so we thought we'd give an overview of the issue. We begin the show with a timeline history of the TransMountain pipeline and of the resistance to it.

After the break we are joined by the official spokesperson and councillor for the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation Charlene Aleck, who have been one of the major opponents to the pipeline and whose land lays directly in it's proposed path.

In the final section of the main show, Stefan leads a discussion on what youth could be doing to help build solutions to these issues if they weren't forced to spend all their time fighting pipelines.

Bonus Show:

Daryn did his best to keep his sarcasm to a minimum during the show, but can only hold it for so long. The bonus show discusses four big reasons why you should call BS on Trudeau's excuses for passing the pipeline and how this doesn't conflict with climate commitments.
