The National for Thursday August 30, 2018 — Pipeline Rejection, NAFTA, EpiPen Shortage
On. This Thursday night a court ruling puts a stop to the trans mountain, pipeline, project, Ottawa's approval, is overturned, and tonight its future, is in doubt many. Indigenous, groups and environmentalists. Are calling it a win the, government, is adamant. It's still committed to the project but tonight, Rachel, Notley got tough announcing. Alberta is pulling, out of the federal climate strategy and, calling Ottawa, to appeal the ruling we'll break down what comes next in the pipeline battle, also tonight inching, closer to a deal Canada. And the u.s. go down to the wire on NAFTA, and Health. Canada's, plan to deal with a nationwide, epipen. Shortage, could, it open up the epinephrine market, long term and end this country dependence, on a single, supplier, this, is the National. In. A stunning development today the Federal Court of Appeal quashed, the government's, approval of the trans mountain, pipeline, putting its future in doubt and, making, it look more like a pipe dream the. Court ruled that the government did, not engage, in meaningful. Two-way. Dialogue, with First Nations communities, during the last phase of the consultation, process saying, it listened, to groups but, didn't actually respond, enough or, consider possible, ways to deal with their concerns and that, the National Energy Board did not consider the impact, increased, tanker, traffic it's now. Snaking. Its way over, 1,100. Kilometers, from Edmonton, to Burnaby, the expansion, would increase, trans mountains overall, capacity, by hundreds, of thousands, of barrels a day but. There was pushback, from, the very start, after, years of environmental protests. And ballooning, costs, Kinder, Morgan decided to bail in May, Ottawa, stepped in to buy the pipeline, for billions, of dollars, now. Clearly today's decision, is a setback, for the federal government there is a lot, of taxpayer, money on the line but as briar Stewart explains it is being seen as a win at least for the time being for those who oppose, the pipeline project. On. The, shores of Vancouver, harbour today it was all smiles as members from several First Nations, gathered, to celebrate a big victory, and. A, major roadblock for trans Maui it's, a great day today. We. Won. The. First Nations were part of a larger group that argued Canada's approval, of the contentious, project, should be quashed and in the end the Federal Court of Appeal agreed because, it found there was inadequate, consultation. Saying, Canada, failed to dialogue, meaningfully, and grapple, with the real concerns, of the indigenous applicants. For. Years. Trudeau, has been standing, by their, consultation. Plan and it. Failed it failed, completely and. The courts agreed with us and that's, not the only thing the court took issue with it found that the review of the pipeline, project was, flawed the. Court found that the National Energy Board made a critical mistake winkin, detecting the review because it didn't take into account what, impact the increase, of marine tanker traffic would have on the environment and in particular, the endangered, southern resident killer whales. Because. The population, is already severely. Threatened, the. Strength, of the evidence mr., McDuffie, is with the Raincoast Conservation. Foundation one. Of two environmental, groups that pushed for the approval to be overturned. If killer, whales are going to recover the conditions, within the Salish Sea could not get any worse and this project. Would have made. Those conditions, decline, the. Cities of Vancouver, and Burnaby, were also, part of this case and while the federal court didn't side with their arguments, it's seen as a win nonetheless, well, the question was did the team win was in question of who scored the goals and so, I think people in Burnaby.
Are Going to be looking at this and saying we fought against this pipeline that I think they can sit back and realize that this has been at least fault well, this doesn't automatically, kill the project it will at least add significant. Delays all of the construction, that was set to begin now, has to be put on hold well, the federal government, figures out just how to proceed, when, it comes to building a multi-billion. Dollar pipeline, it, also now, owns Breyer Stewart CBC, News Vancouver. Now. We should of course point out that not all First Nations communities, oppose this pipeline there are those that support it Chief, Michael Laborde, sees it as a good opportunity for his community. The. First starting Park for. Many. First Nations along. The pipeline many of whom supported, is that this would have meant a lot of jobs and a bit, of jurisdiction, and environmental, oversight so, what we do have to do is build, on this, court. Decision, to, get even, more oversight. And either tax, jurisdiction. Or by, the pipeline outright from Canada, so. How is all this going down next door in Alberta well not, well at all judging, by Rachel notley's reaction, tonight as Carolyn, Dunn reports it's driving a huge policy wedge, between the province and Ottawa. Minutes. After the federal appeals court dealt that blow to the trans mountain pipeline, Kinder. Morgan shareholders, voted more, than 99%. In favor of approving the sale of the project, to the federal government, this shareholder, still believes Ottawa, has the best chance of getting the deal done it's, a battle it's. A stupid one but it's a battle. Right. And they're gonna have to fight it in. Order, to get to go through but, Alberta, premier Rachel Notley will, likely where the political scars, after, all she's been pitching, the idea of, what she calls social, license, pay, a carbon, tax get pipelines, built trans. Mountain was the big one and it is being denied and this was outside, of the control of the, Alberta government this, was nothing that they did, or did not do, but Rachel Notley will get the blame for this as if on cue opposition. Leader Jason Kenney called for Ottawa to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court and for. The Alberta government to, repeal, its carbon tax we'd call on Alberta's, NDP, to. Withdraw. The carbon, tax which supposedly, was going to get pipelines, built a, furious. Rachel, Notley addressed, the province, and Canada. With this stunning, announcement with, the trans mountain halted. And the work on it halted. Until. The federal government gets its act together Alberta, is pulling out of the federal climate plan notley's government, was so convinced, trans mountain was a go it factored, revenues, from the pipeline into, its budget forecast they, will get built because they're important, for Canada, they're important for Alberta but, no, bitumen flowing, through the stalled pipeline, project, means less revenues, flowing, through to the provincial and federal coffers. Scotiabank. Pegs, are inadequate. Pipeline, capacity to about a fifteen billion dollar cost to Canada so, that certainly, affects our industry, in a very meaningful way we. Are losing investment, which we otherwise would get here in Canada so, there will be immense, pressure from Alberta to Ottawa to get the process, going again, quickly. Okay. Carolyn Dunn joins me now from Calgary, Carolyn I'm Alberta's, far along already when it comes to climate change what should we make of the fact that now Alberta, wants to pull, out of the federal plan well, it's like some, kind of acrimonious. Divorce, all, of a sudden you know Alberta, is going to keep its.
Controversial. Carbon, tax but they're just not going to play ball with the federal government, until, this is fixed in addition Rachel. Notley says, that she wants the federal government to make an, immediate appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada and call, an emergency session, of Parliament. To get this review, process fixed, it may be a bit of wishful thinking, of course but she thinks if all of those things happen. That there is a chance, that, construction. Could restart, in the new year okay how could all of this affect her hurt her help her politically, well. Hurt. Her for sure you, know even if the federal government fast. Tracks the consultation. And the, application. Process. There. Are some real doubts about whether that's going to happen, in, time to, help Rachel Notley politically. She was already, facing, an uphill battle in, the, upcoming spring election. But, she was planning, on campaigning, as the, premier who finally, got the trans mountain pipeline, built now. That seems unlikely Rosie, okay, Carolyn thanks for this Carolyn Dunn is in Calgary tonight and this. Isn't just a potential problem for Rachel, Notley the Trudeau government, has an awful lot riding, on this too. Federal. Government has. Reached an agreement with, Kinder Morgan it was politically. Risky from, the start let a pipeline, project, die on its watch or buy it and hopefully offload. It later to another company but, even with today's uncertainty. The Finance Minister still says the investment, is good for Canadians, we, chose to purchase the project, because, it's a sound investment and, because as a government, we, can manage risks, that in these particular, circumstances. Would. Have been difficult for any, private sector company, to bear okay. Sounds logical but now Canadian, taxpayers, are baring a project, the government insists, is in, the national, interest even though they can't know for sure what, happens next a political, delight for the leader of the official opposition conservatives. Are outraged that after. Months of ignoring, our requests, in Parliament here we find out today that they had absolutely no plan and they they just don't know what they're doing in fact the government is reviewing the decision which could offer some practical, solutions like going back and doing further consultations. More review, on the environmental, impact on marine life and even appointing. A dedicated, envoy, to speak for the government with all stakeholders, all of which would almost certainly be faster, than appealing, to the Supreme Court and it would leave the NDP with no room to do anything but, denounce the project altogether. Climate. Leaders, don't buy or expand, pipelines. The. Government, should, never have bought this, pipeline well, it did and the purchase will likely go through tomorrow political. Risk and all. And. You know rosy where, I am out west I see with my own eyes how entrenched, all parties have become in their positions, but I wonder, would. It have been an option at all for the federal government to back out to cancel the purchase and say you know what fine we'll cut our losses the. Pipeline is done before. Today sure there would have been some financial, penalties, by the company, to do that politically. Could they have done that probably, not you can't forge ahead with an ambitious, climate. Change plan if you're, not giving something in return and that's where, the politics, get complicated. Complicated. Indeed, still, ahead on the national a stopgap for, the Canada wide shortage, of EpiPens as parents scramble to get their kids medication, before school, starts plus, a daylight, shooting inside, one of Canada's biggest malls, we'll, hear what it was like when the shots went, off but. First it promises, to be another awfully. Long night, for NAFTA negotiators, reaching. Trying to reach an agreement for. Tomorrow's deadline Canada's, team is, chewing, through Mexico's deal with the US on the lookout for both, red flags and yes possible, compromises. And as, Katie Simpson, tells us they're running on optimism. And now caffeine. Good. Morning everyone. The, Canadian, NAFTA, team was clearly, feeling, pretty, good we. Have brought you some props. Joking. Around with journalists, isn't, something politicians. Do if things are going badly the.
Foreign Affairs Minister spent much of her day at the negotiating, table returning. For three separate, meetings with her American counterparts. That, was. A long. Intensive. Conversation. With ambassador late hyzer and his team we, covered a lot of ground the. Atmosphere, remains, constructive. There's a lot of goodwill, optimism. Was echoed by the prime minister who, suggested, to Canadian, premiers, on a telephone briefing, NAFTA. Talks are going pretty well but there are still some, concerns. The. Only thing I will say that again indicated. Very very clearly and very forcefully, cab exposition, on our three major areas of concerns. Supply. Management cultural, exception, and dispute. Resolution mechanism. A source, tells CBS e News those, three issues dairy, protections. For Canadian cultural, industries, and dispute. Resolution remain. Unresolved, the Canadian public should expect you. Know the American dairy. Industry will probably have more access to Canada, by the time this agreement, is concluded, and we should not lose sleep, over it Canadian, dairy concessions, are being considered in exchange, for American compromises. On the dispute resolution system, negotiators. Have to work fast if they're going to meet Donald, Trump's self-imposed, deadline of tomorrow, it's, never over till it's over and then Washington is never over so we're, dealing with Washington. Dereck, Bernie helped negotiate Canada's. Original, free trade agreement, with the u.s. in the eighties what, we're really looking at as a solution, in this negotiation is something, that Donald Trump can celebrate, in America. As a win for him with, his base we, should never lose sight of that. You're. Looking live there, at this hour at a shot of the United, States Trade Representative's, office where. Talks. Are about to resume Chrystia, Freeland is, expected, to arrive any moment now and she, and her, counterpart, Robert light Heiser are going to sit down even. At this late hour and try, and hash out a little bit further the details of a NAFTA deal before that imposed deadline by. President, Trump of tomorrow, now, many Canadians, of course know Chrystia, Freeland and, know that she has been the face of these talks but she is just one of several negotiators. At the table here's, a look at some of the other key players. Stever, who Liz Canada's, chief NAFTA. Negotiator, he also knows, how to make a deal he, led the team that secured, Sita a massive, trade deal with the European Union and, was, praised in the House of Commons for, it he's one of those soft-spoken. Quiet, gentlemen that always has his finger on the pulse of what's going on but even for who'll admits, NAFTA, is different, earlier, this year he called these negotiations, the most unusual he's. Seen they, did not come. To the table our, counterparts. With. A lot of flexibility, also. On Team Canada, Gerald Butz the Prime Minister's close personal, friend and principal secretary Brian, Clos Justin, Trudeau's point man on canada-us. Relations and, David, McNaughton Canada's, ambassador. To the United States, jiminee, early thoughts on the Canadian compromises, on the US side there's top trade official, Robert light Heiser a self-described. Curmudgeon. And deal maker who like his boss is skeptical. Of free trade he, works closely with Jared, Kushner the president's, son-in-law an advisor light, hyzer called him a dream to work with and Kushner, has emerged as a key conduit, between the White House and PMO. And finally. There's Kelly craft US ambassador, to Canada she says she backs her President's agenda but she also has, a personal, stake in NAFTA, being from Kentucky. Canada. Is our number one trade partner so I have a real interest. In making certain that this border that we see in Kentucky is very. Thin and becomes thinner. Yeah. Papillae, of it grew up myself. For. You. And, that's Chrystia Freeland heading, back into, negotiations.
Now At this late hour in, Washington, DC sitting, across from her. Robert light Heiser and some of other Kenna's Canada's, officials to see if they make this deadline that the president declared, for. Tomorrow. Okay. Lots more we're tracking live tonight including, the latest on an RCMP investigation in. Manitoba, after one of its officers was, shot a, tense. Scene, in western, Manitoba today, as a fourth and final, suspect wanted, for the shooting of the RCMP, officer was arrested, the, situation, began late last night with a call to police about a breakin an ER about 100 kilometers, north of Brandon, near, the town of Anand or when. The officers, arrived on scene and exited. The police vehicle shots. Were fired, at them. One. Officer a 42, year old corporal, was hit he, was airlifted to hospital and. He's still there tonight in stable, condition but, with, serious injuries as, for the four suspects, now in custody no, word just yet on possible, charges I. Can't. Describe it I never thought I'd have to be in the middle of a shooting I heard the shots, but. I didn't realize it actually it's a gun when I thought that the guys in the book I mean to shoot in this court. Tonight. Hubbard. Stories. Of panic, and chaos, after, gunfire, broke, out today inside. Toronto's. Yorkdale shopping mall. Police say an altercation, broke out between two groups of men one of them pulled out a gun and fired at least two shots that, sparked panic inside, as shoppers, ran for safety some, were let out through the underground parking lot, meanwhile, the suspects, at least six of them all ran away police. Are looking for them it, doesn't look like anyone was hurt in the shooting but boy what a traumatic, thing to go through for anyone in the mall at that time but including, a CBC. Videographer. She's, our witness. And. We. Heard a loud bang. Sort, of like something you would hear in a movie and we. All looked at each other and everyone just sort of stopped and then we heard another loud bang and that's when everyone realized that it, was probably gunshot, I heard people screaming and, we ran a lot of people like they were in shock. And. A lot of, people. I. Will say that everybody. There. Was no screaming, and pushing like there was initial screaming with the gunshot but then it's like everyone, realized that we needed to be quiet and we needed to just keep moving. After. What happened, Toronto Mayor John Tory wrote, this on Twitter whether it is York Dale mall or anywhere, else in Toronto people should not have to worry about gun, violence breaking, out at any time there. Are too many guns available, to criminals in the city and I'm determined, to end that with, the help of our police, and our government, partners. Still. Ahead on the National the FBI has arrested a man for making violent threats against, an American newspaper as, Donald, Trump unleashes. Yet another Twitter, tirade against. The media plus. A third day of angry, anti-immigration, demonstrations. In Germany, Margaret Evans looks at the reaction, and the rise of the far-right but. The federal government brings in an alternative, to the EpiPen amid. A nationwide, shortage. It's. Not a running, shoe it's not like this is life-saving medication. This. Is something that we carry. The, we depend, on the. Problem with one drug cornering. The market on, life-saving. Medicine, next. You. For. So many Canadians, there is no real, alternative to, the EpiPen. That's why shortages, like the one we're going through now are so serious, but tonight. Signs of a big change one that should allow people with life-threatening, allergies, to breathe a little bit easier Salima, shiv ji explains why. This. Restaurant calls, itself an allergen, free zone, owner, Polina, Sonia San Lucien has severe food allergies, and even, though he feels safe here. His. EpiPen is still always at the ready in case he goes into anaphylactic shock he, doesn't have a spare, because, of the widespread shortage, it is extremely, frustrating you. Know it's not a running, shoe it's not like this is life-saving medication. This. Is something, that we carry. The, weave depend, on pharmacists. Have been rationing, their supply, but there's about to be another option. The. Health Minister, has ordered this from the US a VQ, will be in pharmacies, next week it has the same medication, and same dose as an EpiPen and has, a voice instruction.
System. Five. The. AVI Q will be imported, for two weeks while the government works to extend that to a year, and, as. Pharmacists, thinks they're here to stay well I think that although, the players have come to realize that over, a reliance, on one product. Especially. When there's a possibility of supply, shortages, is. Something, a situation. Where we really don't want to find ourselves in, in, the future the health minister says the government, will continue, to work with partners and stakeholders on, long-term solutions. To make sure life-saving, auto-injectors, remain available, so, that 19, the, availability of a new drug gives Paulino Sonia a bit of breathing room as back-to-school. Looms. Having. To think of whether, or not I'm going to have access to an. Come, Tuesday is, something, I don't want to have to worry about it's. A matter of life and death for too many people, Salima. Chef G CBC News Toronto. There. Have been on and off shortages, in Canada and the US for well over a year now because, in this, country at least Pfizer, has been the only source of epinephrine. Auto-injectors. And Pfizer, has had recurring, manufacturing. Delays in part because it's having trouble sourcing. A particular, component, making. Things worse this is the season of peak demand since, most kids head back to school next week epi. Pens also expire. 18, months from the time they're made but that. Being said if someone. Is having a life-threatening, allergic reaction. And all you have is an expired, pen health, Canada says use, it and call, 9-1-1. Didn't. Know that that's good. Next, on the national this morning a double whammy Donald Trump lets loose his, latest, barrage, of tweets undermining, the press and a Californian, man was arrested and charged for threatening, the Boston Globe Elin Mora looks at what can happen when, the president subverts, a free press Plus. There. Are calls for calm after, days of angry, far-right, protests. In Germany, Margaret Evans will explain what set them off and growing. Anti-immigrant. Sentiment, taking, shape. Six o'clock this morning we. Heard three explosions, a, quiet, California. Neighborhood got a rude awakening this, morning as law enforcement officials descended. On the home of a 68, year old man it, was always very nice to us and you. Need hang out in his backyard and, and listen to classic. Rock and smoke. Pot he, also seemed. To nurse a grudge against. The media. Police. Arrested, him for allegedly making, threats, against, a newspaper, the, CBC's Ellen Mora looks at who may, have inspired him. These. Are just dishonest. Terrible. People I'm telling you that. It. Almost isn't, news that President Trump launched yet another attack tonight in his relentless battle, against media except. For what else happened, today a. California. Man was arrested for making violent threats against, the Boston Globe in one, of 12 calls to the paper Robert, chained allegedly, said you're, the enemy of the people we're, going to kill every, effing, one of you. Who. Else has been calling the media the enemy President. Trump I called the fake news the enemy, of the people and they are. Totally. Common. For presidents to criticize the press all, of them have done so to, label the press a domestic, enemy his, sharp departure from, any historical precedent.
The, Threatening calls began after the globe and more than 300, papers across, the u.s. published. Editorials, criticizing. Trump's attacks on, the media the, citizenry has to be informed about about. What's going on so that they can govern themselves it's, a pillar of democracy. And self-governance, and the, idea that the president my president, their president, would. Declare the press to be an enemy of the people we found deeply, alarming the president's, attacks are nothing new because they are, the fake, fake. Disgusting. News but. The fear now is that they could fuel, violence in another, call chain allegedly, said as long as you keep attacking the president I will continue to threat harass, and annoy the Boston Globe there's. The concern is, President. Trump by the use of his language and attacks. Giving, sort of an open door to some people to say you, know what I'm gonna go do this. That. Doesn't seem to worry President Trump Ellen, Morrow CBC, News Washington. And. Just days ago New York Times reporter, Kenneth Bogle shared a threat he received, on voicemail imagine. Getting, this message. You're. The problem you, are the enemy of the people, and. Although the, pen might be mightier, than the sword the. Pen is not mightier. Than the ak-47. And, just. Remember, Ken there's nothing, Civil, War. Pretty. Scary stuff but, when, it comes to demonizing. The media it's not just, happening, in the US. These. Are German protestors, shouting a notorious, slogan, that translates, as The Lying press, it, was once a favorite of Adolf Hitler who, understood that propaganda. Works better when people don't trust the media for. Days now thousands, of people have gathered on the streets in one German city to take a loud and public, stand against, refugees, and as the CBC's Margaret Evans shows us it's. A situation that could explode. The. Angry face of the far-right in, the German city of Chemnitz. Demonstrators. Hurling. Out a defiant, call to all those who, would criticize them. Get. Lost. Today. Leaders, at both state and local levels, we're at pains to reassure a gathering. Of community, groups that law and order has not fled the city. Desktop. It is very important, to say that the state has the monopoly on the use of force the, Premier of Saxony, said we, enforce, law and order. Witnesses. Say it didn't feel that way earlier, this week when, German authorities failed. To prevent thousands. Of far-right activists. From, rampaging. Through the city in the wake of a stabbing that, left a German man dead last, weekend, the, rioting, grew after an apparent, leak to far-right, anti-immigrant. Groups that, an Iraqi man was named in, an arrest warrant in connection with the killing. Some. Of the protests, used Hitler, salutes, according, to the police illegal. In Germany, and there were reports, of mobs, combing. The city in, search of foreigners. This. Syrian, man says he's afraid he, speak to the. I. Hope the German government, brings in strict laws so. It doesn't happen again he's, saying. Chemnitz. Is the third largest city. In Saxony, as in, other parts of former East Germany, hard, right parties, including, the alternative, for Germany have, been on the rise feeding. On fear and anger, in some quarters, /, Angela, Merkel's, decision, to allow 1, million, mainly, Syrian, refugees, into the country back, in 2015. Miracle. Has condemned both the killing, of the German man and the, violence, and backlash, against, foreigners, that, has followed saying, mobs and hate on the streets have, no place in a state under the rule of law. But. Far-right groups say they are planning more demonstrations. For, Saturday. Margaret. Evans CBC, News London. I'll. Have another take on our top story next on the national neighbours divided. Over the trans mountain pipeline, can agree on one thing the debate, it's, all about the future, in.
Order To keep us whole we. Built pipelines, this, is really the economic future, of the next generation, I want, to be able to look my children in the eye years. From now and tell them that I did what, I could do to protect their future. You. Welcome. Back tonight on the national a big development, in that apparent, road rage incident. Caught on camera north of Toronto police. Say they've tracked down the man who was driving this car as a drove, down a highway with someone clinging to the hood he's. Now facing two charges dangerous. Driving and assault with a weapon now the man who was hanging on for dear life told, CBC, News the whole thing started when he was in his own car and refused to let the other driver merge in front of him things, escalated. He got out of his car to take a photo of the other drivers license plate and it clearly got out of hand from there. Ontario. Premier Doug Ford's buck abeer promise, will soon be a little harder, to deliver on just one week after it began selling, $1, President's, Choice beers Loblaw. Says it's planning to stop a few days from now September 3rd the, grocery chain was one of three Ontario, companies to sign up for the program and to be fair it did say last week that this would, just be for a limited time and now, we know how limited. And. NASA, is sharing, details of a small emergency, onboard. The International, Space Station a two millimeter hole was found leaking, oxygen into, space in the Russian part of the space station nASA. Says crews, discovered, the problem last night after noticing, a drop in pressure on board today. They work to patch it up but as for how that hole opened up scientists. Say it might have been a chunk, of space rock or debris hitting, the station. Today. An 1,100, kilometer, fight line slammed. Into. 266. Pages, of a federal court ruling and came, to an abrupt stop its future is now uncertain the, trans Mountain project has been one, of the great political sagas. Of the year years, even but, for people who live along the expansion, route it's also personal so earlier this season before, today's ruling NIC Burton hit the road to find out what's at stake for them and their communities. It's. Hard to find something more controversial. In the country, right now, then, Kinder Morgan's trans mountain pipeline project. Here's. The background Kinder. Morgan wants to expand their existing 1,000. Kilometres of pipe so. It will carry three times as much oil from Alberta's, oil sands, to, the coast the. Federal government wants it bad, they say it's critical to the future of the country, to. Environmentalists, it's a potential, ecological disaster. So. I'm gonna drive the pipeline route from Edmonton all the way to Vancouver and talk to the people who live along. Maybe. They can help us better understand, what's at stake. First. Stop is in isku just outside of Edmonton. At, Blackjacks Roadhouse, now this is a kind of unofficial, Union Hall for oil patch workers. Clarence. Shields is the owner you're. Welcome, we could become, self-sufficient. As, a country, if, we were to transport, our oil and if we were to able to get our oil to Tidewater, all, of a sudden we're, self-sufficient.
The. View from Blackjacks is that oil powers, the country and all, Canadians, can benefit from getting it out of the ground, that's. The promise of the pipeline, we're. Gonna drive the route of the pipeline what would you say to people who oppose it. Think. Canada, first. That's. The important, issue in, order to keep us whole we, built a railway, in. Order to keep us whole we've. Built pipelines, this, is really the economic future, of the next generation. We. Don't have access. To our resources, we're. Gonna be a have-not country. That's. What scares me so. That tells you yeah, those are the stakes from someone who believes that more, oil will, only bring Canada, more rewards. But, then you drive into Jasper National Park and it's hard not to think of risk - I. Mean. Look at it this might be the most beautiful place, in the country. And. The pipeline runs right through it a. Spill. Here I'll, just imagine. Todd. Noble has worked at the Jasper sky tram for 22 years. Show. Me where the pipeline is comes. In from the east comes, in around that mountain. Range and, towards. Town, ten, years ago Kinder, Morgan was here upgrading. The pipe and Todd, kept, a close eye on their work they, were in and out of here quite, smoothly no. Issues, the, impact on the area was. Minimal. The. Area is not scarred if anything. They, came through here and and you'd never know they were through, here, by, all accounts so, some. People might be surprised a pipeline. Expansion in a national park the postcard, of the country, and the guy who runs the tramway has, no problem with it well. Yeah, I think face, value, it can seem maybe, a little disturbing, but having, experienced, it before and how they manage the area it's. Not such a scary thing, to think about, the. Reality is there, have been spills in Jasper, several. Of them, and. Along the entire trans mount in route since the 1960s. 82. Spills and all. And. That's. The thing about pipelines. You. Don't really notice them until something, goes wrong. This, is what the existing, trans mount pipeline, looks like it runs along here but you can't actually see it because it's buried in the ground. I follow. The pipeline across the border into British Columbia, it.
Seems That here the popular, belief is that everyone, is against it because of environmental concerns. A couple. Of hundred kilometers, down the road is the town of Blue River. I pulled, it at the Holy Smoke in. And. Made patty tight. What. Would the pipeline mean for your town. Jobs. Jobs. And more, jobs I, know. They were thinking of bringing in a 500, man camp they, came and they did a big open house Kinder Morgan did told. Us how, to, apply, for, good-paying, jobs. Honey. Tells me how her town has fallen on hard time since the logging dried up, she's. Not worried about environmental, risks she's, worried about Blue River I. Love. This place it's. Uh. It's. Just a jewel of the Yellowhead Highway. It. Doesn't get any better this, whole valley needs. It we. Really, need it bad the. Jobs and just. The people and, everything. We need the pipeline, to go through in order to survive in. BC. There are more and more people like patty. Poll. Show growing support for the pipeline now, as high as fifty five percent that's, not the same opposition isn't, strong to BC. Is a land divided, I. Drive. A couple of hours south outside. Kamloops farm start to appear I pull. Over in the village of Black Pines, okay. That's the rooster his name is lucky lucky, yeah. I know he was lucky because we had two whole bunch of males and he was the best one so he's the lucky one the rest went to freezer camp. For. Penny power in Charles Hayes it's simple the. Pipeline, would mean the end of their farm as they know it what's, Kinder Morgan's plan if, you can see it in this orchard it's. Gonna be gone. They're. Gonna come in here the. Pipeline is gonna come right straight through there essentially. Right where we're standing this, whole orchard. Becomes, their easement, their, right-of-way, here doesn't. Everybody have to sacrifice for, the country. It's. Not for the country. They. Want to do something for the country they can refine, that oil here in Canada and sell it to Canadians. Problem. It's bigger than the farm right it's the the problem is that. Oil is a 19th century technology. And, we're. Not having a discussion about what's next what can we do instead of it's. Just oh we've got to pump oil because you know we've been doing it now for a hundred years and, we.
Don't Know anything else that. Wasn't easy listening to Charles it's as if the Trans Mountain project, is a kind of referendum. On oil. Sure. The pipeline is a national, issue but, it's local, too it. Crosses, the property, of 2,200. Landowners. And. Each, of them has to decide what to do. Another. 250. Kilometres south, of Kamloops, on the Fraser River is the town of Hope. The. Pipeline crosses right, by the property, of a local legend. Here. That well. That's Pete Ryan. Is it an owl, yeah he's. Coming up they're, starting. To shape up, it's. The blocking, of an owl, coming. Up now. Ya know already, cuz you. Know a lot of smart guys out there yeah because of some smart answers. For. Pete in the pipeline there's, no debate at all but. I get bill it's not a matter of ain't, getting built it don't get built we're all in trouble I. Think. It's, good. For the economy and, it. Should be done yeah. Bring them bring them in let's get her going. Only. About 40 kilometres south, of Pete Ryan's chainsaw, is Cheam first nation, I stopped. Him because one, of the biggest misconceptions about, the pipeline is that, all indigenous people, oppose it, the, reality is first nations are divided, the, pipeline, will be coming, along at the foot of that mountain and, Ernie. Craves the chief and GM the, popular, image of indigenous, people is we're, not interested, in participating in, the economic, life of the larger community. Wrong. As, the. President. Trump would say if I can quote. Him or imitate him wrong. We. Want this pipeline to, go through so that we, can improve our economic, standing. And in Canada, then, we're not going to stand by and let, a bunch of green groups get, in our way but Ernie, calls green groups are the environmentalists. Who oppose the, pipeline, I've. Already told them because, they've phoned, me and they said we're just trying to help you chief gray my, own response, was please, please. Stop, helping. Me I do. Not want your, help I. Don't. Know where they get off thinking that my, community, can continue, to live in poverty in, this. Country. By. Opposing. Developments, like this that we see is important. Ernie. Crepe believes in the pipeline so much that he says his community, would consider investing. In it to make sure it gets built. On. The pipeline route you can toss stereotypes. And misconceptions onto. The road, so. Our trips almost over Vancouver, is just in front of us and, we have one more stop we want to make we're gonna go to Burnaby, to the end of the pipeline. Because. In Burnaby is where Kinder Morgan faces its biggest opposition, a. Permanent. Protest, camp has been built just before the end of the pipeline so. Open up valve to a revolution. Devastated, pollution, demonstrate, a solution eliminate. The confusion cut. Wood coastal, First Nations and environmentalists.
Vow, They won't let the project get built so, here I am turning. Into stone and then I'll, be standing here for years. More. Than 200 people have been arrested already. You. Know even the conservative one of them is Atiya Jafar, I felt. A lot of power in, the act of doing something bold and doing something where, I wasn't, just sitting back and watching these events unfold I, want, to be able to look my children in the eye years. From now and tell them that I did what, I could do to protect their future are, you proud of yourself that, you got arrested that you took, that stand my, battle is with oil billionaires, who think that they can get away with destroying. The climate with violating, indigenous, rights so, I would, say that I'm very proud to stand in this fight against the Kinder Morgan pipeline I'm, very proud to, stand strong. I'm. Very proud to stand strong, those. Words could echo all the way back up the pipeline. I am, very proud to stand strong could, be something that everyone said along the route and, that's. The thing sure. People, don't agree on the pipeline but. Each and every one of them is, passionate, about their community, and the. Future of the country. Nick. Burton CBC News along. The trans mount and pipeline room. After. Today is federal court ruling we contacted, a couple of the people that you just met in Nick's piece here's, what they had to say about the, decision. Patty, type of Blue River British Columbia, admitted, she was stunned by the ruling she told us today I guess this means we're going to get increased traffic on our railroads, here and oil cars and not looking forward to that attea. Jafar of Vancouver, was elated writing, today, is a day of celebration, I am immensely grateful for the First Nations who have led this fight since day one and the tens of thousands, of people who have stood behind them since a. Reminder.

You. Jude. Rudik, loves his local, car wash, he loves the sounds, it makes and the unicorn, soap as he calls it that gets sprayed on the car Jude. Has, autism and going through the car wash is calming, for him he loves it so much his family bought a membership. And now they go through every day and since Jude is there all the time the car wash decided, hey we. Should make him a manager and that is. Our moment of the day that's. What my husband actually got the business card. And. My. Son grabbed some tape and put it on a shirt and, he goes look I work at the carwash and that's when they decided, that they needed to they, made him a nametag and they gave him a bunch of merchandise, and stuff and it's really cool it means, so. Much to have a business. Say, like, well instead, of you know it being a bad thing that we want to go every day or that he needs it the staff get almost excited just as excited as he does when, he comes to the carwash for, the most part he can just walk in and pick a desk, to sit at and today. He actually, was. Able to usher a few cars into the carwash and you. Know. Activate. The rollers and things like that so he was really, excited about that and yeah they really love having him there which is fantastic so. Rosie. I love, every part of this story so that this is a carwash in Lethbridge, Alberta and and you know the kicker here is that the parents apparently they're pretty shrewd they've, started using visits, to the carwash as a bargaining, chip with their, kid to say you know well hey if you want to you know be, good and we'll take you to the carwash but apparently he's actually turned it around on them and said, okay, we're going on a shopping trip carwash. First, which. Which i think is just perfect, that's some high level a, kid, there I'm telling you I love the story too I also love a carwash and that Unicorn soap, and I will say that they did see that piece that you Anna did the other day that we reran where she went and met some autism, autistic, adults, who worked at a car wash and they thought that was just great too so there you go that's.
The National for August 30th United, good. You.
