Alberta's energy minister says the United Nations is an unelected, unaccountable body that has no business criticizing Canada's energy megaprojects.

Sonya Savage, in a statement, says that it's the job of elected leaders, not the UN, to make decisions on how best to govern people and economies.

The UN's Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination has urged Canada to stop work on three major resource projects — including the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion — until it obtains approval from affected First Nations.
