these are the articles i chose:?

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/11/canada-greenlights-controversial-oil-pipelines-161130113258928.html

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/29/world/canada/canada-trudeau-kinder-morgan-pipeline.html?_r=0

and I've attached a file of what i have so far and some bullet points that could help?


1) Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, approved an expansion to the pipeline

 

linking the oil sands in Alberta to a tanker port in British Columbia. Doing this will

 

"rease the capacity of a 53-year-old pipeline to 890,000 barrels a day from 300,000 and

 

expand the tanker port" Of course, environmental groups disliked the decision. The

 

environmental groups believed the pipeline expansion directly contradicted P.M.

 

Trudeau's promise to protect the environment. Prime minister Trudeau disagrees. P.M.

 

Trudeau believes that the pipeline expansion is both good for the environment and good

 

for the economy. ?If I thought that this project was unsafe for the B.C. coast, I would

 

reject it,? he said. P.M. Trudeau welcomed dissenters, but still would not change his

 

decision. He believes he based the decision on science, not political beliefs.

 

Environmentalists think this decision will lead to an oil spill.

 

2) I think you should choose the culture and economy

 

3) Both discuss Trudeau approving the pipeline. The Al Jazeera article talks more about

 

Indigenous communities' opposition to the pipeline Al Jazeera interviewed president of

 

the Union of BC Indian Chiefs. He also interviews the tar sands Campaign Coordinator

 

with climate justice group 350.org Both address concerns about what a potential oil spill

 

would do to the environment Al Jazeera also discusses Canadians also held vigils in over

 

45 different locations across the country last week in opposition to the project.

 

4) When Al Jazeera mentions P.M. Trudeau's pipeline expansion announcement, he refers to

 

the Canadian government as "Liberal government" The New York Times just says

 

Trudeau approved the expansion, with no mention of whether Canada is conservative or

 

liberal. Al Jazeera immediately places this quote after that paragraph, "The decision that

 

we took today is in the best interests of Canada and the best interests of Canadians,"

 

Trudeau said at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon. The New York Times,

 

however, immediately talks about the age of the existing pipeline and the barrel increase: "The Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain project will increase the capacity of a 53-year-old

 

pipeline to 890,000 barrels a day from 300,000 and expand the tanker port. I personally

 

believe this is due to the author wanting to point out that the pipeline is old which may

 

cause it to leak (The Deepwater horizon oil rig was a little over 10 years old when it had

 

an oil spill, so I think that is why the author mentioned the age). Also, the pipeline is old

 

and it will now be holding an extra 590,000 barrels a day. Al Jazeera appears to support

 

the pipeline expansion because he immediately mentions Trudeau's science comment

 

while the New York Times only mentions science and economy toward the bottom of its

 

article. Al Jazeera's quote ""This is a decision based on rigorous debate, on science, and

 

on evidence. We have not been and will not be swayed by political arguments, be they

 

local, regional or national. We have made this decision because we are convinced it is

 

safe for BC and it is the right one for Canada. "It is a major win for Canadian workers,

 

for Canadian families, and for the Canadian economy now and into the future," Trudeau

 

added." Al Jazeera primarily focuses on indigenous and environmental opposition to the

 

pipeline. The NEw York Times, however, focuses on any opposition to it. For example,

 

"The expansion?s opponents include Gregor Robertson, the mayor of Vancouver, who is

 

generally a political ally, and some members of Mr. Trudeau?s Liberal caucus in the

 

House of Commons. But while Mr. Trudeau said the government welcomed people

 

expressing contrary views, their opposition would not change what he characterized as a

 

decision based on science." Even though both are technically considered biased, I feel

 

the bias is more evident in the Al Jazeera article. Al Jazeera has to mention "Liberal" in

 

reference to the government. Al Jazeera also uses this quote from Trudeau, ""The

 

decision that we took today is in the best interests of Canada and the best interests of Canadians," Trudeau said at a press conference on Tuesday afternoon." Al Jazeera wants

 

to emphasize how he, too, believes the pipeline is int he best interests of Canadians.

 

While both the Ny Times and Al-Jazeera mention this quote from P.M. Trudeau ""This is

 

a decision based on rigorous debate, on science, and on evidence. We have not been and

 

will not be swayed by political arguments, be they local, regional or national. We have

 

made this decision because we are convinced it is safe for BC and it is the right one for

 

Canada."
