September 29, 2020: Today an historic agreement between TC Energy and Natural Law Energy for a large equity stake in Keystone XL was signed. This marks another major step forward to securing Indigenous communities as true partners in energy prosperity.
“Today’s announcement is a testament to what we can accomplish when industry and Indigenous groups work together,” said Chief Alvin Francis, President of NLE. “This historic agreement is an important step for our Peoples and future generations to share in the energy wealth coming from our lands and traditional territories.”
NLE CEO, Travis Meguinis stated, “This very substantial and historic agreement has been reached through the practice of traditional protocols involving our grassroot Chiefs and leaders. All the Chiefs, NLE and TC Energy worked hard to develop a path for all First Nations and industry to follow. This partnership is historic and one of the largest ever of its kind in Canada and around Turtle Island (North America).”
