Environmental group angry over funding cuts for safety programs

A Vancouver environmental group says it’s not impressed that special funding for safety programs at the federal pipeline regulator is drying up.

Karen Wristen of the Living Oceans Society says it’s beyond belief the National Energy Board will continue to manage many projects with decreased funding, two years from now.

The envelope of money has helped cover costs for the board’s assessment of big projects, including the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline, and was always temporary.

A board spokeswoman says it’s not yet certain if there will be actual job losses and the regulator will seek more funding if necessary.
