This morning, we brought you the news that Canada just declared a National Climate Emergency. The House of Commons passed a resolution that officially declares climate change an urgent crisis that is dangerous to all Canadians.\nFor the past couple of weeks, Trudeau and his Liberal government have made clear their firm stances on their environmental commitments. Along with Monday's resolution, Canada is set to ban single-use plastics by 2021.\nHowever, less than a day after Canada announced a National Climate Emergency, Justin Trudeau and the Liberals announced that they would go ahead with the expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline.\nThe controversial $7.4 billion dollar project is set to begin this year and already, Canadians are furious at Justin Trudeau's decision.\nPrime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet have approved the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project. https://t.co/Cm5gOLox0C— Twitter Moments (@TwitterMoments) June 18, 2019\nMany Canadians on social media are understandably angry about this decision as they feel Trudeau is re-negging on promises made during his time as Prime Minister.\nCanada just announced a climate emergency and the Trudeau government passes the trans mountain pipeline. I've never been more disgusted to be Canadian.— Lisa 🐀🌱 (@buffalo_road) June 18, 2019\n24 hours after declaring a climate emergency, the Trudeau government announced it will be moving forward with the climate-polluting Trans Mountain pipeline. This will ensure the expansion of the Alberta tar sands Canada’s largest source of greenhouse gas emissions. Shame Justin!— James L Turk (@jameslturk) June 18, 2019\nTrudeau says that the project will help bring stable and gainful jobs that will improve Canada's middle-class. Alberta's government is especially happy about the decision because it affects them the most.\nAlberta Premier Jason Kenney welcomes federal approval of Trans Mountain pipeline, calls it another step in a process that has lasted 'too long.' Says success can only be declared when project is completed. 'We’re happy with today’s decision, but now let’s get it built.'— CBC News Alerts (@CBCAlerts) June 18, 2019\nTrudeau also says that the profits and sales accrued by the project will all go to fund sustainable energy projects that will help move Canada away from fossil fuels.\nWhile I am not a fan of pipelines....I resent the populist notion that we can just shut-down oil and gas and everything will all be hunky dory. The pipeline however should be thought of as a stop gap, not a second life and it's time for the industry to think transition. #cdnpoli— Univrsle (@univrsle) June 18, 2019\nREAD ALSO: The Rest Of Canada Thinks Quebec's Controversial Bill 21 Is Super Racist\nCanadians are also concerned about the welfare of the many First Nations tribes surrounding the immediate area.\nWhile all attention on @JustinTrudeau Trans Mountain pipeline announcement, keep in mind extractive industry responsible 4 sexualized violence vs Indigenous women & girls in Canada, US & worldwide. Yes to Trans Mountain = yes to continued #genocide #MMIWG https://t.co/XSsqzvuBs7— Pam Palmater (@Pam_Palmater) June 18, 2019\nPipelines have burst and penetrated into groundwater before, but the Prime Minister has assured local Indigenous groups that they will have a stake in the project.\nThe Government of Canada has re-approved the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion saying they have fulfilled their duty to consult with Indigenous Groups and will begin discussions with these groups regarding potential ownership of the project. #TMX #cdnpoli— Centre for Constitutional Studies (@CentreConstStud) June 18, 2019\nOf course, many Canadians are skeptical about the sincerity of Trudeau's promises attached to the controversial pipeline project. Some accuse of him playing a political game with the voters of Alberta, who are polling at 55% Conservative.\nMany say @peoplespca is splitting the conservative vote from @CPC_HQ. Well @JustinTrudeau just lost the leftist/enviro vote to @bcndp or @CanadianGreens. Election will be 🔥 #cdnpoli #TransMountain #TransMountainPipeline— TradeTheTrader (@TradeTraders) June 18, 2019\nTrudeau approving the trans mountain pipeline knowing the election is just a few months away 👀 doing everything to get re-elected, I see....— niks 🌼 (@nabdc9429) June 18, 2019\nLiberal hypocrisy at its finest: - Declare Climate Emergency🚨- 24 hours later, approve massive Trans Mountain pipeline expansion for carbon intensive oilsands🔥If Trudeau thinks he can win the election by playing both cards, he’s sorely mistaken#TMX #ClimateCrisis #cdnpoli https://t.co/iWUi2utXdw— David Paterson (@davidrbpaterson) June 18, 2019\nIt seems that the Prime Minister has slightly hindered his chances in the upcoming election after approving a pipeline that some experts consider dangerous.\nWe haven't even mentioned the potential dangers caused to B.C.'s orca population, as oil tanker traffic in the region is expected to be unprecedented.\nOnly does @JustinTrudeau1. Acknowledge the #genocide of the Indigenous people2. Declare a #ClimateEmergency AND3. Approve the #TransMountainPipeline that clearly contradicts 1 and 2!!!Time to vote out the @liberal_party hypocrites in #Election2019— Amber (@hannambam) June 18, 2019\nIt seems that only time will tell whether this announcement will work out in the Prime Minister's favour. So far, it doesn't seem like it.\nFor more information about the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion approval, please read this article from CBC News.
