  • Joe Biden veut annuler le projet controversé d'oléoduc Keystone XL

TC Énergie a averti que cette décision entraînerait la mise à pied de milliers de travailleurs syndiqués et qu'elle survenait malgré ses engagements à utiliser plus d'énergie renouvelable et à élaborer des partenariats avec les communautés autochtones.

Les écologistes s'y opposent en raison de son impact sur les émissions de gaz à effet de serre.
