A planned expansion of Canada's Trans Mountain pipeline has divided Indigenous communities in the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. While some view it as a potential income stream, others are concerned about the impacts it could have on their land, waterways, and cultural sites, and say they weren't adequately consulted on the project. Journalists Megan O'Toole and Jillian Kestler-D'Amours spent two weeks traveling along the path of the pipeline and speaking with Indigenous leaders to understand more about the battle over this 1,150-kilometre pipeline. While there, they delve into everything from land ownership to the government's duty to consult.
