Mr. Speaker, first, I would like to draw reference back to petition No. 421-02359 that I presented on May 9 and at which time I provided my own personal opinion on the petition. I later found out that it was outside of the procedure of the House. Therefore, I apologize for doing that and will chalk it up as a learning experience.
However, I rise to present a petition that reads: whereas Kinder Morgan is an American oil company based in Texas; and whereas Kinder Morgan paid no taxes to the Government of Canada in 2017; and whereas in Canada dozens of first nations still do not have access to clean drinking water, we are facing a housing a crisis, and renewable energy projects are desperate for more funding, the petitioners call on the Government of Canada to refrain from using Canadian taxpayer money to bail out Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and instead invest in green energy projects that respect indigenous rights.
