Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet colleagues signed off on two major pipelines today, projects that will pump nearly a million more barrels of oil a day from Alberta’s oilsands to global markets, if they are constructed.

Ottawa gave the green light to Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline and Enbridge’s Line 3, while it rejected Northern Gateway.

Trudeau is speaking with reporters and taking questions in Ottawa. CBCNews.ca is carrying the press conference live.

Later, Trudeau will meet privately with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley.

Notley is expected to speak with reporters on Parliament Hill at 6:30 p.m. ET.
