Tomorrow is a big day on multiple fronts for the Federal Government and the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion.
Two huge decisions that will define the future of the project are set to be made tomorrow.
The first decision will come from the Federal Court of Appeal and will decide whether or not the National Energy Board did its due diligence by properly consulting First Nations.
Should the court rule that consultation was not adequately performed, the matter could find itself in front of the Supreme Court of Canada for a final decision.
The second decision will be made not half an hour later as Kinder Morgan shareholders gather to vote on the approval of the pipeline’s sale to the Federal Government.
According to the Department of Finance, it would be next to impossible for Canada to walk away from the 4.5 billion dollar purchase should the court ruling be unfavourable.
