On May 30, 2017, Toronto-based Council of Canadians organizer Mark Calzavara delivered 8,000+ letters to the head office of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board in Toronto calling on them to not invest in the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline.
The Council of Canadians has opposed the possibility of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) investing in the Texas-based Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline for more than a year.
In February 2017, Reuters reported, "Kinder Morgan Inc. has begun talks with institutional investors including major Canadian pension funds and private equity firms to raise capital for the $6.8 billion expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline project, according to people familiar with the process. Kinder Morgan has held discussions with Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board, three of the biggest Canadian pension funds, the people added. It was unclear whether talks with the three pension funds were still ongoing."
