Coquitlam wants compensation for Trans Mountain Pipeline

Coquitlam wants compensation for Trans Mountain Pipeline”

"Constantly, we were being told, 'We have to get your response by this date, and we have to get this report in by this date, because cabinet's making a decision in June, ' " he said. Oil could flow through the twinned pipeline by the second or third quarter of 2022, delayed by about a year since last year's court decision, Anderson said.

And B.C. will also continue to challenge Alberta legislation that threatens to curtail the flow of oil to B.C. through the existing pipeline if B.C. continues to oppose the expansion.

In 2016, the National Energy Board said the production of another 590,000 barrels of oil, which would maximize the twinned pipeline's capacity, could generate 14 million to 17 million more tonnes of greenhouse gases each year, which means Canada would have to find ways to cut more from other sectors to meet and then exceed its current targets. Some conditions must be met before construction can resume.

Vancouver's mayor, Kennedy Stewart, attended the conference and said the decision to approve the pipeline is "unacceptable" from a reconciliation and environmental perspective.

"It's a long ways from an approval to a completed pipeline", said Masson.

While Alberta Premier Jason Kenney expressed appreciation for the decision, he said what matters now is actually constructing it.

Prior to the work being halted past year, there were a number of NEB condition filings that had to be made, variances approved, and route hearings to determine specific route locations. "We're into a kind of symbolic phase now as far as the B.C. government is concerned", he said.

February 22, 2019: The NEB recommends to cabinet that it approve the project again, subject to 16 new conditions, and says although an oil spill could be significant, the project provides considerable benefits and there are measures that can be taken to minimize the effects.

Those potential delays include ongoing legal challenges, such as B.C.'s appeal to the Supreme Court to allow the province to restrict heavy oil shipments through its territory.

Several hundred protesters gathered Tuesday evening in downtown Vancouver, carrying signs that read "Justin the hypocrite" and "No jobs on a dead planet". "The water is suffering", Dakota Bear, a Cree hip-hop artist, told the crowd. "I hope you will join us".

"Instead, we should take advantage of what we have, and invest the profits in what comes next - building the clean energy future that is already at our doorstep". They're not going to have access to clean air.

Rally attendees asked him to stop but Hamilton persisted.

"Mr. Trudeau fails on the climate file, he fails on this file and frankly I think Canadians deserve better", said Weaver.

The federal cabinet is also requiring another consultation with Indigenous communities affected by the project to determine how they can potentially become economic partners in the project.

May 29, 2017: The B.C. NDP and Greens agree to form a coalition to topple the Liberal party, which could only manage a minority in the previous month's provincial election.

"In order for taxpayers to be made whole for being forced to pay for the purchase and expansion of Trans Mountain, it is imperative that the Trudeau government ensure construction gets underway as soon as possible".

"First Nations ownership would undercut the environmental movement, because numerous people who oppose the pipeline are likely to support self-determination for First Nations", said a UBC sociology professor, David Tindall.
