Greta Thunberg has no time for the Alberta energy minister’s pro-pipeline talk during the coronavirus pandemic. Minster Sonya Savage said in a recent podcast that bans on mass gatherings mean there are fewer protests, which makes it “a great time” to build pipelines, but the Swedish climate activist was having none of it. Savage’s comments were part of a discussion about the ongoing Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. “Now is a great time to be building a pipeline because you can’t have protests of more than 15 people, so let’s get it built,” Savage said.
