Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and Canadian oil transport company Enbridge Inc. announced an agreement Monday intended to boost the safety of twin oil pipelines beneath the waterway where Lakes Michigan and Huron converge.
Company spokesman Terry Cunha says TransCanada is not, however, asking for the approved route to be reconsidered and that the motion is a request to address some questions raised in the decision.
Speaking in front of the Calgary Chamber, Notley assured the audience that she has been delivering that message in person all week to audiences in Ontario in an effort to see progress on pipelines, especially with Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain project that faces resistance in British Columbia.
Premier Rachel Notley says the Trudeau government must “step up” to promote pipeline projects across Canada. In a speech to the Economic Club of Canada in Ottawa on Tuesday, Notley delivered messages for the federal Liberals, Conservatives and NDP.
The bump in drilling numbers aside, CAODC called out the challenges facing Canadian oil and gas — including the pressure that service and supply companies are under to keep rates low.
The acquisition by the Mikisew Cree and Fort McKay First Nations was first announced a year ago but was conditional on the First Nations securing funding.
