CAPP remains optimistic Trans Mountain will be built, but frustrated with delays

Feds delay Trans Mountain pipeline decision

The federal government is delaying its decision on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project until June 18 so it has more time to complete consultations with Indigenous groups.

Amarjeet Sohi, Canada's minister of natural resources, said the delay would give the federal Liberal government more time to consult with indigenous groups impacted by the pipeline.

"The government is taking its time to make sure the right decision is made and it's communicated the right way to the masses", Tran said.

A load of pipes originally destined for the Trans Mountain pipeline sits idle on a Kamloops B.C. rail siding.

At least 28 killed on tourist bus near Caniço — Madeira crash
The coach reportedly overturned after the driver lost control of the vehicle on a bend crashed onto the top of a house. Local media report as many as 28 fatalities, and there are fears that number may rise.

In February, the National Energy Board (NEB) reiterated its approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, subject to 156 recommended conditions and 16 new, non-binding recommendations to the federal government created to better protect marine life on the B.C. coast. Tanker traffic from the Westridge Marine Terminal would increase from about five vessels a month to one a day.

Interestingly, during the Alberta election, Rachel Notley stated she believed the Trudeau government would approve it by the end of May. This means ensuring that consultations are not only meaningful but also open and transparent. "We certainly don't want them going back to the drawing board a third time on this. We will continue on our part to build an alliance across the country that supports TMX and other pipelines". "We know how important this process is to Canadians, and we will continue working hard each day to get it right".

"This process includes engaging in meaningful, two-way dialogue - to discuss and understand priorities of the groups our teams meet and to offer responsive accommodations, where appropriate".

That came after Canada's Federal Court of Appeal overturned the Liberal government's 2016 approval to expand the pipeline. The Trans Mountain Pipeline System is a pipeline that carries crude and refined oil from Alberta to the coast of British Columbia in Canada. Ottawa spent $4.5 billion to buy the existing pipeline past year in a bid to overcome political hurdles holding up construction.
