Fossil Fuel Projects at Odds with Actions on Climate and Indigenous Rights (pdf) (2017)


This Briefing Paper will first evaluate the progress being made in Canada to reduce green-house gas (GHG) emissions in light of the goals set by the Paris climate conference. It will then examine how recently approved fossil fuel infra-structure projects are undermining mitigation efforts. Third, it will explore how Indigenous peoples and allied social movements are responding by mounting strong resistance to new fossil fuel extraction projects while striving to build low-carbon alternatives with particular reference to the expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline.
