Earlier today I received an email from Rachel Notley’s staff (reproduced below). The email accepted my request for a public meeting on the Kinder Morgan pipeline. While details are scant at this stage, and I’m not sure what a meeting with “her team” means, I am very pleased that British Columbians will be given an opportunity to witness a public discussion on the issue of the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

As the only MLA who served as an intervenor on this project,  I will be bringing forward the myriad concerns that I highlighted during the National Energy Board Hearings. In addition, as a climate scientist who has served as a Lead Author on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientific assessments, I can relate this infrastructure project to the goals that Canada agreed to when it signed the Paris Accord last year.

Text of the Letter

Dear Mr. Weaver:

On behalf of Premier Notley, thank you for your email. I appreciate you reaching out and I have shared your invitation with Premier Notley and her scheduling staff to organize a public meeting between you and her team.

Premier Notley’s scheduling staff will follow up with you shortly.

    Yes, a public debate would be welcome. Better yet can it be televised by Shaw or Chek/CBC?
    Thank you.

    Please turn Rafe Mair loose on her, points will then be made in everyday speech that everyone can understand. Thanks

      That’s the art of politics, isn’t it – getting your point across in a way everyone can understand. Andrew Weaver, if you can do that, you can be our next premier.

    Looking forward to science based evidence versus evidence based science.
