Canadian Minister says COVID-19 restrictions is ’a great time to build pipeline’

A top Canadian official said this is a ’great time’ to build a pipeline because coronavirus-related restrictions ban large public protests. Alberta’s Energy Minister Sonya Savage said people needed jobs and ’ideological protests’ would not be ’tolerated’ by ordinary Canadians. She was referring to expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline, opposed by indigenous groups and environmentalists.
