Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will approve two massive oil pipelines

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has given the green light to two controversial oil pipelines as being in « the best interest of Canada. » Native Indians as well as environmental groups were critical of the proposed expansion and said they would do all they could to stop it. One of the pipelines would replace an existing system known as Line 3. This runs from Alberta delivering crude to the United States. The other would expand the Trans Mountain Pipeline running from Alberta to British Columbia. The 994 km of new pipe transporting nearly 900,000 bpd has been valued at $6.8 billion.
