Iron Coalition of Alberta First Nation and Metis communities plan bid for Trans Mountain pipeline

The Homestretch

A group of Alberta First Nations and Metis communities is planning to make a bid to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline. The group is called the Iron Coalition and its plan comes barely two weeks before the federal government announces its final decision on whether the delayed pipeline project goes ahead. The Trans Mountain pipeline has faced delays and challenges over the past few years. The liberal government made a deal to purchase the pipeline from Kinder Morgan last may, at a cost of $4.5B. Chief Tony Alexis is co-leading the Iron Coalition.
