Burnaby Drags It's Feet
Kinder Morgan asks NEB to follow up with its commitments
By Transmountain Expansion Project
Transmountain staff discuss pipeline route.
ctober 26, 2017 – After a thorough and lengthy process, taking into consideration local interests along with technical and scientific evidence, the National Energy Board (NEB) and the Government of Canada granted their approvals for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project in 2016.
The Board and
the Government considered timing and schedule in their determination
that the Project is in the public’s interest. After many months of
working in good faith to obtain municipal permits from the City of
Burnaby without success, we are asking the NEB to allow us to go
ahead with work under the terms and conditions of the applicable
Certificate and NEB Orders.
The Project will provide important local, regional and national benefits and that is why we are also asking the NEB to establish a process for Trans Mountain to bring similar matters to the Board for expedited determination in the future. As previously disclosed, such measures are necessary to help mitigate a possible delay in the construction schedule. While we await the NEB’s determination, as always, our door remains open to the City of Burnaby and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss a solution.
