In this episode of The Pipeline, Paul, Derek and Deirdre discuss the latest with the blockades happening around the country, and the non-confidence vote that was (almost) introduced as a result.

We also look at The Western Standard’s biggest story this week – the Bloc’s motion on the Teck mine approval.

We delve into the befuddling state of the gaffe-prone propaganda tool of the Alberta government, the Canadian Energy Centre.

And we wrap up with the story about the Edmonton Eskimos professional football team, and their recent efforts to clear their name – literally – with the Inuit of Canada.

In this episode of The Pipeline, Paul, Derek and Dave discuss the various blockades happening around the country, the impasse between the sides, and the tepid response by law enforcement. From trains to bridges to legislatures, there’s a lot of angry protestors who seem ready to stop at nothing to prevent the CostalGasLink from being built.

 

We also examine the latest developments on the Teck federal approval situation, and the unrest this situation has stirred in Alberta.

 

And finally, Dave pays tribute to a giant of journalism in Canada who passed away today.

In this episode of The Pipeline, Paul, Derek and Dave discuss the shocking interview with Canada’s Heritage Minister alleging that the Federal Government was looking at licensing Canadian media.

We also cover the latest (and possibly final) Trans-Mountain Pipeline lawsuit and what the fallout from that looks like.

Finally we rejoice in how much smoother elections are in Canada as compared to the way things are ran in the Democrat’s Iowa Caucus. Who was the big winner there? And what are the possibilities of a second Trump term?
