Kinder Morgan Survey

weaverheadshothighres

Kinder Morgan has applied through its subsidiary, Trans Mountain, to build a new pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby. This pipeline would run parallel to the existing Trans Mountain pipeline and is being proposed in order to increase the transportation of oil from the Alberta tar sands to the B.C. coast.

Kinder Morgan’s pipeline application is now under review by the National Energy Board. I applied to participate as an intervenor in the review process, because I believe my constituents, and all British Columbians, deserve a voice in these hearings.

I am therefore encouraging feedback from constituents and from others around the province. Below you will find links to background information and to frequently asked questions about the pipeline and the hearing process. You will also find a link to a blog that offers an insiders take on the pipeline hearings, and two ways to submit your feedback: A Kinder Morgan Survey and a general feedback form.

Your feedback will assist in my submissions and in my questions to the company, other intervenors and experts.

Thank you for your time on this important issue,

Andrew Weaver
