VANCOUVER—The National Energy Board has denied a Living Oceans Society motion requesting the Province of British Columbia answer questions related to the five conditions it has imposed on Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion application.
“This is a clear signal that it is time for Premier Clark to withdraw from the agreement and strike a customized process under the B.C. Environmental Assessment Act,” said Karen Wristen, Executive Director of Living Oceans Society. “The current National Energy Board process cannot possibly satisfy Premier Clark’s five conditions.”
VANCOUVER—Ecojustice lawyers, on behalf of Living Oceans Society, have filed a motion with the National Energy Board requesting that the Province of British Columbia answer questions relating to the five conditions it has imposed on Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion application.
VANCOUVER—A new study from Simon Fraser University concludes that the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion is not needed and far from being a benefit to Canada, would actually cost Canadians more than $6.4 billion.
The study estimates that investment in the Kinder Morgan pipeline will create excess pipeline capacity that will cost $3 billion, including costs to the taxpayer in the form of reduced royalties and taxes.
