Statement by Environmental Defence’s Patrick DeRochie on the federal government’s reckless purchase of the Kinder Morgan pipeline

It leaves Canadians on the hook for a risky pipeline that lacks a viable business case, flouts Canada’s commitment to Indigenous rights and reconciliation, and faces intractable legal, political and regulatory obstacles.
