Ottawa, November 29, 2016 – Teamsters are praising the government’s decision to approve the Enbridge Line 3 Replacement Project, an ambitious pipeline maintenance project that will help thousands of working families.

The massive $7.5 billion project stands to generate over $514 million in tax revenue for federal and provincial governments and add close to $3 billion to Canada’s GDP. Communities along the pipeline project will also benefit, as workers will need food, lodging and other goods and services.

“In these tough times, we see in this project something much greater than dollars and figures,” explained Francois Laporte, the President of Teamsters Canada. “We see hope for the thousands of Canadians who were badly hit by the fall in oil prices.”
