APTN National NewsA British Columbia First Nation facing a potential sevenfold increase in tanker traffic on its doorstep as a result of the Justin Trudeau government’s approval of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is vowing to ensure the project will never reach completion.A spokesperson for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation said in a statement the Trudeau government’s announcement Tuesday it had approved Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion was a “big mistake” and would face a court challenge. “Their permits are illegitimate, I believe they will be thrown out in court. This is just the beginning of another phase of this conversation,” said Tsleil-Waututh spokesperson Charlene Aleck. “This issue is as black and white as the killer whales they endanger. This is about our survival and the protection of our home, this inlet and the planet. They are making a big mistake, we will not allow this pipeline to be built.”Leaders from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation travelled to Ottawa this week to again voice their opposition to the project which will increase tanker traffic through the Burrard Inlet on their doorstep from about 30 to 70 oil tankers a year to about 360 a year.Tsleil-Waututh Nation Chief Maureen Thomas at a press conference in Ottawa Monday.Trudeau said Tuesday during a press conference in Ottawa his government approved the controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, but rejected Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway project, which would also have moved bitumen from Alberta to the B.C. coast.Trudeau also announced his government approved Enbridge’s $7.5 billion Line 3 pipeline replacement project which will run from Hardisty, Alta., through Neche, ND, to Superior, Wis.The prime minister said his government would soon be introducing legislation to make permanent a moratorium on oil tanker traffic through British Columbia’s northern coast.Once completed, the $.6.8 billion Trans Mountain expansion pipeline project will increase the capacity of existing infrastructure to 890,000 barrels per day, up from 300,000 bpd. The 1,150 kilometre pipeline expansion would run from Edmonton to Burnaby, B.C., where it would pump Alberta-mined bitumen and synthetic product onto tankers which would sail through Tsleil-Waututh Nation waters for Asian markets.Trudeau said the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion will need to meet 157 conditions outlined by the National Energy Board before it begins operation. The prime minister said 39 Indigenous communities have signed onto the Kinder Morgan project, which faces stiff opposition from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation on the coast and is listed as one of the pipelines opposed by a cross-country Indigenous treaty alliance which has about 100 signatories.Trudeau said Alberta’s climate change plan, coupled with his government’s improvements to marine safety, allowed his government to approve the pipeline project.“We know there are people who feel very strongly on either side of this decision,” said Trudeau. “There will be people upset. The fact is the decision we took today is in the best interest of Canada, the best interest of Canadians.”TsuuT’ina Chief Roy Whitney (left) and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after naming ceremony earlier this year. Brandi Morin/PhotoAlberta Premier Rachel Notley welcomed Trudeau’s announcement on the Kinder Morgan pipeline.“Our province has been brutally slammed by the collapse in commodity prices. It has been a long, dark night for the people of Alberta as a result,” said Notley, in a statement. “Today we are finally seeing some morning light. We are getting a chance to break our land lock. We’re getting a chance to sell to China and other markets at better prices.”Trudeau said Canada needs new pipelines to transport the expected increased production from Alberta’s bitumen fields. He said pipelines are the safest way to transport bitumen to world markets.“Oil sands production will increase,” said Trudeau. “More oil will be transported by rail in the coming years if we don’t build pipelines.”Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said the Canadian government met its duty to consult with Indigenous communities on the Trans Mountain project.“There was an enormous amount of work that went into the consultation with Indigenous people with respect to the Kinder Morgan project,” said Wilson-Raybould. “We engaged with many Indigenous peoples, we certainly, as a result of those consultations, entered into significant accommodation agreements and recognize the substantive nature of those agreements.”The accommodation agreements with Indigenous communities are worth about $300 million, said Trudeau.Wilson-Raybould said Indigenous communities will have representatives on boards overseeing Kinder Morgan’s implementation of the NEB’s 157 conditions for the project. Conservative interim leader Rona Ambrose criticized the Trudeau government for ending the Northern Gateway pipeline and said the Trans Mountain project “will never be built.”NDP leader Thomas Mulcair said the Trudeau Liberals “betrayed” British Columbia by approving the Kinder Morgan project.Other First Nations in B.C. praised the Trudeau government’s decision to finally kill Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project and make permanent a moratorium on tanker traffic along the province’s northern coast.“We’re jubilant to see this final nail in the coffin to Enbridge Northern Gateway. Coastal First Nations have been calling for this decision since 2011. It’s a huge victory for us and for all coastal communities that depend on our coastal marine resources,” said Coastal First Nations board chair Patrick Kelly. “Nobody knows better than First Nations the risks posed by crude oil transport at sea and the damage oil spills can wreak on our cultures, economies and ways of life.”The Coastal First Nations is an alliance of First Nations that includes the Wuikinuxv Nation, Heiltsuk, Kitasoo/Xaixais, Nuxalk, Gitga’at, Metlakatla, Old Massett, Skidegate, and Council of the Haida Nation.The anti-pipeline Indigenous treaty alliance held a signing ceremony in Manitoba Tuesday. It is also targeting Enbridge’s Line 3 expansion.In the run up to Trans Mountain decision, Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr appointed a three-person panel to review the project. The panel report questioned whether the Trudeau government could square its commitment to implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples with approval of the project.Moments after Trudeau announced the approval of the Trans Mountain project, calls went out on social media to begin organizing opposition to the project.The announcement comes as opposition in North Dakota continues against the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe reservation. The anti-pipeline movement there has electrified a continent-wide movement against new oil [email protected]@APTNNews

The OSU baseball team practiced at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center on March 3. before its road trip to Bowling Green, Ky. to take on Western Kentucky.Credit: Lexus Robinson / Lantern reporterFive games might not seem like a lot during a baseball season, but when a team suffers four losses with just one win, it can feel like a heavy load.After going 1-4 in its past five games, the Ohio State’s baseball team is back in Columbus, practicing indoors at Woody Hayes Athletic Center because of cold temperatures.The Buckeyes (5-4) had previously lost two games to Florida Atlantic during their visit to Florida from Feb. 20-22, and then lost two more game on Saturday, before finally pulling out a win against the University of Alabama-Birmingham on Sunday. OSU is now set to take on Western Kentucky on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Bowling Green, Ky.Coach Greg Beals said the team realizes how important the weekend is before the Buckeyes are set to host their first home series.“This will be our third road series. We played two tough ones against very good opponents,” Beals said. “I think it’s important before we go into conference play that we can go on the road and prove that we can win a series on the road.”Beals said he is confident in the team and isn’t changing the practice routine much this week, even after the Buckeyes’ 1-4 stretch. “We just try to really emphasize fundamentals,” he said. “The pitching and the hitting are the big things. The guys are going to work on that on their own. From a coach standpoint, I try to put together a practice schedule that’s going to make sure that we are touching on the little things as well.”The Buckeyes are confident that it’s not their game they need to change in order to earn more wins, senior infielder Nick Sergakis said. “It’s not really what we have to do differently, it’s what we have to improve on and it’s just our mindset,” Sergakis said. “We’ve got to keep believing that we are the same team that we went into the season as.“We have the talent, it’s just a matter of when it shows.”First pitch in Bowling Green is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Friday, 3 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Redshirt-senior quarterback Braxton Miller doesn’t have a date set for his return from a second shoulder surgery.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorWith two out of three quarterbacks in an open competition limited by injury, Ohio State’s spring practice plan has stayed the same day to day.Coach Urban Meyer said the Buckeyes want to keep redshirt-senior Braxton Miller moving toward full health, get redshirt-sophomore J.T. Barrett as much practice time possible and keep redshirt-junior Cardale Jones’ foot on the pedal.“Hoping to get J.T. Barrett a million reps, probably more than I thought we’d get him,” Meyer said during a Monday press conference. “Cardale didn’t have a particularly great day today, but he’s had a good spring and we’re getting him as much reps as we can. And Braxton’s getting healthy, and he’s getting a lot of mental reps.”Each of the three has a chance to start when the Buckeyes open the 2015 season against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7, depending on their health.Miller is in the process of recovering from his second labrum surgery after injuring his throwing shoulder, which held him out for the whole 2014 season. Barrett is coming off a fractured ankle suffered in late November against Michigan, and Jones is healthy, but only has three collegiate starts under his belt.Jones has gotten the most reps in the spring, and Meyer said he and redshirt-freshman Stephen Collier will be the two Buckeye signal callers playing in Saturday’s annual Spring Game at Ohio Stadium.Barrett has been less limited than expected, Meyer said, and has even had a chance to compete in two-minute situations in practice. The fourth-year OSU coach said the Wichita Falls, Texas, native has been more of an active participant because the team as a group knows how to avoid causing injuries in practice.“There’s winner-loser days where you are gonna do whatever you got to do, but then there’s a day to pull up right before something stupid happens,” Meyer said. “We monitor that real close.“If you re-injure it, he’s done for the year.”Left: Redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T.

OSU won, 42-28.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorBarrett has more starting experience than Jones, but only got his shot when Miller — who has been OSU’s starter for the better part of three seasons — was injured during fall camp.Meyer said he doesn’t yet have a date for when Miller will be fully available again, but said the former Wayne High School signal caller has been evaluated by Dr. James Andrews, a surgeon who regularly operates on high-level athletes, multiple times. Meyer added that — even ahead of medical personnel — he trusts Miller’s take on his own status first and foremost.“I’ve known Braxton for a long time and almost every day, ‘How’s it going, talk to me,’” Meyer said. “And he says it’s going very well.”With three quarterbacks in three different stages of availability, Meyer said there’s no set plan for when the Buckeyes take on the Hokies in Blacksburg, Va., in less than five months.“I don’t know who our quarterback is going to be,” he said.

Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorDuring the second quarter of Saturday’s game against Rutgers, redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett claimed the Ohio State record for career passing yards, surpassing Art Schlichter with his 7,559th passing yard on a 13-yard pass to wide receiver Terry McLaurin. Ohio State currently leads 28-0.On a 37-yard rush in the first quarter, he became the first Ohio State player to reach 10,000 all-purpose yards, and the 10th player in the Big Ten to accomplish the feat.This Barrett’s 23rd program in three-plus seasons as the starting quarterback for Ohio State. Among the many Buckeye records Barrett owns, the three-time captain also holds the record for most touchdown passes (81) and 200-yard passing games (23), including today’s game in which he has two touchdown passes and has 212 passing yards.Against Army, Barrett set the Big Ten record for most touchdowns responsible for with his 107th career touchdown, surpassing former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees. He has since extended the record to 114.
Rachel Weber running at Tracktown USA last June during the NCAA championship. Credit: Courtesy of Rachel Weber.She keeps her head up, chin down, eyes level while gliding through each stride with even distance as her hair whisks side to side. Rachel Weber, a fifth-year at Ohio State in strategic communications, is a runner’s runner.“I just fell in love with it and I fell in love and competing and the adrenaline that you get,” Weber said.Weber finished 13th at the NCAA Outdoor Championships at Tracktown USA last June in Eugene, Oregon. It was the last time she would run for the Buckeyes, but she doesn’t plan for it to be her last visit to that track.Although she has ran out of eligibility at Ohio State, this was not her last meet competing against other collegiate programs.Ohio State has continued to have ties to Weber’s post-collegiate running career almost a year after she took off her scarlet and gray jersey.Professional track and field isn’t as straightforward as well-known leagues like the NBA or NFL. Runners sometimes compete for track clubs, which are often smaller in scale, or they receive sponsorships from brands like Nike, Asics and Adidas that allow them to support their career.There also is separation between professional and post-collegiate. Weber runs for Columbus Running Company and it supports her. However she is not getting a salary to run for it, although it pays her for as an employee who works at its store.“I am really, really fortunate that Columbus Running Company supports me and they help support gear, travel and teammates and it’s awesome,” Weber said. “When I graduate hopefully I will be looking to be up more on that professional level with a professional contract.”She has a new coach, Rob Meyers, an Ohio State alumnus who has the fourth-fastest 1,500-meter time (3:41) in school history and the fifth-fastest mile time (4:03) in school history.Meyers met Weber through the running camps that he and his family host in the summer. Weber was a volunteer who brought an infectious smile to running, Meyers said.“I knew that she was really energetic and positive. She was passionate for the sport,” Meyers said. “As for as the running camp side of things go, we obviously invited her back.”Their relationship changed last summer when Weber reached out to Meyers to become her personal coach.“First I was a little caught off guard, but the more I thought about it, she needed to stay in Columbus to finish her education” Meyers said. “It seemed like something that I was able to work out and I was excited about.”Beyond working with Weber, Meyers coaches cross country and track and field at Fairfield Union High School. Weber has assisted him, working as a volunteer coach and training there for outdoor season. Competing for Columbus Running Company has sometimes led Weber to race against her old teammates. In the indoor season, Weber ran at the Meyo Invitational in South Bend, Indiana.“Meyo is one of the nearest and dearest meets to my heart. For I have had several really, really poor races there.” Weber said, “Like some of the worst races in my entire college career.”This past Meyo Invitational had some slight differences. Mainly, she was competing against Ohio State in the 800-meter run, the event in which she set the school record several months before — though none of Ohio State’s runners competed in the same heat.Weber’s goals for the meet also slightly changed. This year it was to make the U.S. Track and Field standard at 2:03 and the International Association of Athletics Federations standard at 2:02. Weber won her heat, but she ran a 2:07.Even while no longer with the Buckeyes, there was nothing new to the meet for Weber.“Even in college like we would show up with the team but then it was like I had my own up and a lot of times I was the only one running a certain event,” Weber said. “I had to get really good at being independent and having my own warmup routine and own warmup schedule.”During the winter, Weber also trained at the French Field House alongside the current Buckeyes and intermingled with them between exercises. She even saw a personal trainer from Ohio State before her practice. Sara Vergote, Ohio State’s distance and cross country coach, took some time and helped Weber out during one of her most intense practices of the year, in which the goal was for Weber to push herself as far as she could possibly go. Vergote said she stopped Weber when she started to lose her running form and risk injury. All along this road, Weber was driven by her love for running. Speed just followed her afterward.She started running 5ks with her mom, Christine Weber-Wheeler, when she was just five years old. Growing up Weber wanted always wanted to be an athlete — just in soccer. “I played club soccer and so I always envisioned myself like oh, ‘I’m going to be the next Mia Hamm,’” Weber said.But her passion switched to track, specifically the 400-meter dash. At Dublin Coffman, she moved up to the 800-meter run and finished third at the high school state championship meet, then came to Ohio State. During her time at Ohio State she broke the school record for the 800-meter run record (2:02) and posted the second-fastest 1,500-meter run. Weber’s passion for running spreads out much further though than the events she ran or the times she has clocked.“Like I still would choose to run again and again and again because of the friendships that it’s given me and the fulfillment that it gives you,” Weber said.She has gone to the Columbus Marathon, not to run, but to cheer on the runners. In addition to her work at Fairfield Union, she also volunteers at Dublin Coffman.“She is an amazing influence to have for these athletes.” Meyers said.For Weber, the Olympics has been the dream, but she knows the odds can be tough to predict. Olympic qualifying at Tracktown USA — back in Eugene — happens one day every three years.“I think it’s a wonderful gift to have to be able to compete and experience the joy and the freedom that running bring me.” Weber said, “So my goal is to enjoy the entire process leading up to the Olympics.”
