Ottawa launches consultations on Indigenous ownership of Trans Mountain pipeline

Finance Minister Bill Morneau says the federal government is launching a new set of consultations with Indigenous groups that will determine if and how they might take part in ownership of the Trans Mountain pipeline and its expansion project. Speaking in Calgary, the minister said up to 129 communities will be consulted over the next weeks and months to ensure they have a chance for "meaningful economic participation" in the pipeline. He says the groups will be asked their level of support for equity-based or revenue-sharing options, as well as whether groups are willing to work cooperatively with each other through existing or new organizations.
