Environmental groups go to court to quash Enbridge pipeline approval

Monday, October 5, 2015

VANCOUVER—Environmental groups are in court today making the case for why the federal government’s approval of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline should be revoked.

“There’s too much at stake to let the Panel’s flawed report be the final word on Northern Gateway,” said Ecojustice lawyer Karen Campbell. “The federal government should never have given this project the go-ahead, and our clients will be asking the Court to overturn the approval of this risky project.”

B.C. needs to strike own review of Kinder Morgan project

Thursday, July 23, 2015

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.”

Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion would cost Canadians over $6 billion

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.
