Provincial Government to intervene in Trans Mountain review

Concerns over the Federal government’s timeline have led the BC government to intervene in the National Energy Board’s Trans Mountain pipeline review.

The provincial government filed papers to become an intervener in the process today, citing a need to better represent British Columbians.

A 22 week timeline was issued by the federal government for the NEB to complete a review of the expansion project’s marine traffic impacts.

However, the BC government does not believe that is enough time to properly consult with and meaningfully engage communities and Indigenous groups.

As interveners, the provincial government will be able to advocate on behalf of all British Columbians for the protection of their environment and economy.
