Are Canada’s pipeline approvals at odds with our climate commitments?

For years the possibility of new and expanded pipelines running across BC have raised questions related to First Nations land rights, coastal tanker traffic, and the nature of inter-provincial relationships.

Hear from a panel of experts as they examine the economic, environmental, and public policy ramifications of the recent approvals.
