Vcat allows pi바카라사이트peline opponents case against TransCanada, who are seeking permission to build the pipeline through Canada’s traditional territory.
Pipeline opponents have vowed to sue, saying the project will be detrimental to indigenous culture, food supplies, water quality, water security, and 우리카지노biodiversity.
“This fight is very important because it’s about our environment, our food security, our water security, our culture,” said Kevin Condon, an organizer of the Idle No More protest.
“If we want to fight this pipeline, we’re going to have to fight it i우리카지노n every capacity.”
Condon spoke outside the Canadian Parliament building in Ottawa and was joined by other environmental activists.
“This is going to be a very serious challenge,” Condon said.
“There will be a lot of pressure because there is no national consensus in favor of this pipeline. This is an area that’s critical to Canadian sovereignty. This is where Canadian interests have to stand.”
Condon said he was proud to participate with the Idle No More protest, which was organized following the release of an internal government document from the former prime minister, Stephen Harper.
At issue was a report by the former government on the environmental impacts of oil sands development.
“It’s not right to put us at the risk of becoming part of the [oil sands] project if this project is going to harm the environment and water and land that we stand on,” Condon said. “We’re not going to be able to protect our environment, we’re going to have to protect ourselves.”
