Since 1953, the Trans Mountain Pipeline system has been safely and efficiently providing the only West Coast pipeline access for Canadian oil products. The pipeline has been adapted over the years to meet evolving needs. A proposed expansion will, when built, create a twinned pipeline that would increase the capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000.
Kinder Morgan, the project owner, has been working for years to get this project done. What they have accomplished is remarkable: unprecedented work with First Nations (some 30,000 points of contacts over five years just with Indigenous groups), land owners, municipalities and others. They turned around the Trudeau Government on the pipeline, convincing ministers who had actively campaigned against TMP of the project’s merits.
The Canadian and B.C. governments both approved the project, subject to 194 environmental and other conditions. Despite this effort, cities like Burnaby have been dragging their feet, trying to prevent construction by not issuing permits. And the new John Horgan government went to court trying to revoke B.C.’s support.
Kinder Morgan #Got2Yes. But federal, provincial and municipal governments must now be forced to #Stick2Yes so that construction can get under way.
There’s too much at stake to let the $5.4-billion Trans Mountain Pipeline project die:
Let’s #Stick2Yes on Trans Mountain!
