Wheeling and Dealing
Stephen wants halt to Kinder Morgan offers after City declines
By Ian Stephen, WaterWealth/Voice file photo
he WaterWealth Project, an intervenor in the National Energy Board Hearing on Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project, have submitted a motion to the National Energy Board asking them to tell Trans Mountain to stop negotiating deals worth hundreds of thousands of dollars with participants in the Hearing–deals that hinge on a successful Hearing outcome for the pipeline project–and to make null and void those deals already made.
At least four communities with standing
in the National Energy Board Hearing on the Project have been
approached under Trans Mountain's Community Benefits Program. These
four are the City of Chilliwack, a commenter in the Hearing, and
three communities with intervenor status; the District of
Clearwater, District of Hope, and City of Kamloops.
