First Nations members, artists, environmental and labour organizations, and everyday citizens will take part in a protest in the west end of Montreal on Sunday, to push back against the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain oil pipeline project.

The Calgary Chamber of Commerce, which announced the event set for May 30, says the speech will focus on securing Canada's economic future.

Kinder Morgan put all non-essential Trans Mountain expansion work on hold last month, warning it will not put any additional shareholder funds at risk without agreements in place to address political bickering between the British Columbia government, Alberta and the federal government.

The company has set a May 31 deadline for getting assurances it can proceed without delays on the controversial project.

Since then, Morneau and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley have repeatedly vowed the project will be built.

However, the minister also said if Kinder Morgan were to walk away from the pipeline, there are other investors willing to step in.

A spokesperson for the finance minister was not immediately available when contacted by BNN Bloomberg for additional information on Morneau's speech.
