Landowners Push Back on TransCanada Bullying

September 9, 2011

The same stories we heard during the siting process for Keystone I are popping up as TransCanada attempts to strong-arm landowners into signing easement agreements for Keystone XL.  The Omaha World-Herald reports that a Nebraska landowner has requested an opinion from Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning about TransCanada’s threat of condemnation, even though the company still lacks necessary approvals to build the pipeline.  Also according to the World-Herald, “(t)wo weeks ago, TransCanada backed off on an eminent domain lawsuit it had filed against a reluctant landowner in Oklahoma.”  Many landowners along the route, whether they oppose the pipeline or not, can’t get over the fact that a foreign corporation (a KXL-specific US subsidiary notwithstanding) is threatening US citizens with condemnation.  How can that be right?
