In a twist on usual reports, hundreds of BC residents gathered in Kamloops yesterday to rally in support of the Trans Mountain Pipeline.
The rally was an attempt to convince Kinder Morgan to continue with the project amidst growing uncertainty about its future.
One of the ralliers, Cache Creek Mayor John Ranta, says the project will bring an abundance of jobs and tax dollars to smaller communities in the province.
Meanwhile Simpcw First Nation councillor Don Matthew, whose territory over a third of the expansion runs through, says workers will ensure the utmost respect for the environmental concerns of the area.
Kinder Morgan has suspended all non-essential spending on the project while it waits on the May 31st deadline it issued the government to make a decision.
