TransCanada's Energy East pipeline project canned, National Rifle Association in U.S. agrees to tighter restrictions, and off-grid homes for the homeless in Seattle

VICTORY! After First Nations standing together and being supported by non-Indigenous allies, TransCanada will not pursue the Energy East pipeline project

- the largest pipeline project in North America. In other news, the National Rifle Association on Thursday endorsed tighter restrictions on devices that allow a rifle to fire bullets as fast as a machine gun - a rare, if small, step for a group that for years has vehemently opposed any new gun controls; and the BLOCK Project in Seattle is combating homelessness by building off-grid homes for the city's homeless population in people's backyards.
