Natural Resources committee meeting today to talk about pipeline decision

first_imgOTTAWA – Federal MPs on the natural resources committee will meet this afternoon for an emergency session to discuss last week’s game-changing court decision to tear up federal approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.The meeting comes at the request of the three Conservatives and one New Democrat MP who sit on the committee.A federal court last week ruled consultation with Indigenous communities was not robust enough for the approval to be valid.The court also said the National Energy Board hadn’t properly considered the impact of an increase in oil tanker traffic off the coast of British Columbia that will result from an expanded pipeline.The same day, Kinder Morgan shareholders voted to approve the sale of the existing pipeline and other assets to the federal government for $4.5 billion.Conservative natural resources critic Shannon Stubbs says the government needs to explain whether it took into account the risk this court decision would come down as it did when deciding the only way to get the pipeline built in the presence of investor jitters was to nationalize it.last_img read more
