The tar sands corporation TC Energy in Canada is linked to the gas pipeline companies in Mexico protested by Yaqui who were assassinated.

The Agua Prieta pipeline is a natural gas pipeline project by IENova (a subsidiary of the Texas-based Sempra Energy) transporting natural gas from the U.S. state of Arizona to the northern Mexican states of Sonora and Sinaloa.

The pipeline will cross the Yaqui River, the source of water for Yaqui in Sonora.
