Métis Nation Leaders Voice Support for Trans Mountain Pipeline

Leaders of Métis Nation governments from the three Prairie Provinces joined the Hon. Perrin Beatty, President and CEO, Canadian Chamber of Commerce, and business and labor leaders in offering full support for the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project at an event in Ottawa hosted by the Chamber. MNC Vice-President and MMF President David Chartrand, MNA President Audrey Poitras and MNS President Glen McCallum participated in a press conference at the Chateau Laurier followed by a series of meetings with Parliamentarians who were encouraged to work with the provinces to reach a consensus and use the appropriate legislative, legal and financial steps to ensure that the Trans Mountain Expansion project proceeds.

The Métis Nation leadership believes the project to be undertaken by Kinder Morgan will create tens of thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity, taxes and other revenues that will help to fund government investments in healthcare, education, roads and bridges. The mutual benefits agreements Kinder Morgan has signed with First Nations and Métis Nation communities in Alberta and British Columbia will provide those communities with revenues and other opportunities, including training, procurement and servicing contracts, community services and infrastructure. All of these benefits will disappear if the project dies. The Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion was approved following a multi-year, rigorous and scientifically sound review process that included consultations with thousands of individuals and meaningful engagement with First Nations and Métis Nation communities.
