The PM told media that a rewrite of NEB rules. would include Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) pipeline. . See Omnibus BILL C-69,that addresses nicely the deficiencies of the NEB/TMX….for instance, seeking outside expert assistance….
TMX submits that ….”there are no impacts….that cannot be mitigated ” ! So be happy, BC… We worry, nonetheless .
BC Senator Neufeld, comments in the media. “ … leadership is needed .. He(the P:M) must stand up … for Canadians.” Surely the Senator ….saw the Senate Pipeline Study which suggested that government “…restore legitimacy to the pipeline approval process. http://www.parl.gc.ca/content/sen/committee/421/TRCM/Reports/FINALVERSION-PipelineStudy-2016-12-07_e.pdf
Senator, please help to solve this problem and apply some ‘sobre second thought ‘ to this new, but late, innovative government Omnibus Bill C-69.
Can the Senate delay approval of TMX until it’s upgraded with Omnibus Bill C-69 necessary features ?Alternatively courts are likely to be involved…could you request that they consider the Bill 69 features before deciding ?
Pipelines and tankers are here for a long while…so let’s gain community support …and get on with a new, less risky, export plan !
