Oklahoma Family Fights TransCanada Eminent Domain Land Grab

Oklahoma family fighting TransCanada ‘land grab’ for controversial oil pipeline. An Oklahoma family is fighting TransCanada Corp.’s efforts to build a crude pipeline across its land. The late A.L. and Dollie White bought a farm near the Texas-Oklahoma border about seven decades ago, land the family is now being forced to sell to make way for the pipeline. Some of the couple’s children and grandchildren have filed a court challenge to Calgary-based TransCanada’s (TSX:TRP) use of eminent domain to take control of the land. Eminent domain means the state can force landowners to sell their property for public use. Sue Kelso, the Whites’ daughter, says it’s not fair for a foreign company to take her family’s land without its consent. TransCanada says its Keystone XL pipeline from Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast would create jobs, bring billions into government coffers and reduce U.S. reliance on oil from the Middle East.
