The Coastal Gaslink Pipeline Project did everything right.
Over eight years ago they began the application process to build a natural gas pipeline from Dawson Creek, BC to Kitimat where an Light Natural Gas (LNG) terminal is under construction. TC Energy did all the environmental assessment work. They applied for and acquired the myriad of requisite federal and provincial permits. They consulted with and made agreements with all 20 of the First Nations bands who have traditional lands within the right of way.
Despite all of this, construction remains chronically stalled on the pipeline due to a small group of protesters. If the state does not definitively intervene to get this pipeline built, we will never see another energy project completed again in Canada, no matter how many hoops the applicants may jump through.
