Dear Premier Ford,

Environmental Defence Statement on the federal government purchases of Kinder Morgan

"For Immediate Release: May 29, 2018

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

Toronto, Ont. – The federal government’s decision to purchase Trans Mountain is a totally reckless use of public money. 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.

Climate Action Network Canada reacts to Kinder Morgan Announcement

"Unceded Algonquin Anishinaabe Territories [OTTAWA] (May 29, 2018) – It is deeply dismaying that the Government of Canada is willing to dump $4.5 billion of Canadians’ money into purchasing the floundering Trans Mountain Expansion pipeline from Kinder Morgan. This move is a devastating blow to the government’s stated commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous people and it painfully undermines ongoing efforts to implement the Pan-Canadian Framework on Climate Change and Clean Growth.

The Junction Cares for its Street Trees

The pervasive drought of summer 2016 underscored the need to have a better organized, failproof way to care for our street trees. The loss of so many street trees (27%) from 2015 to 2017 became the driver for Junction Adopt-a-Street-Tree Project. Here is the report written in thanks for Special Project funding. We look forward to continuing the project through the 2018 growing season. To adopt a Junction street tree or volunteer to water orphan trees, contact: junctiontrees@gmail.com
