Urgent Information About Pipeline Hearing Application

      Comments Off on Urgent Information About Pipeline Hearing Application
The National Energy Board (NEB) has informed me that on Wednesday, January 15th they will post an online application for the public to apply to participate in upcoming hearings about whether or not to approve Kinder Morgan’s proposal to build a new crude oil pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby. This call for applications is happening much earlier than I expected and will close on February 12.

Applicants must demonstrate they have a “direct interest” in the granting or refusal of the project. Applicants must also link their interests to the twelve ‘issues’ the NEB has posted on the project webpage.

I think British Columbians should decide if the proposed new Kinder Morgan Pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby is good for our community, not big, foreign-owned energy companies or Ottawa politicians.

It is not difficult to apply and I urge everyone on the pipeline and tanker routes to apply to be an intervenor so they can have their views considered in this important decision-making process.

In order to help you, my Community Office will be running a computer lab with staff and volunteers who can assist you to apply online. The Community Office at 4658 East Hastings will be open extended hours to accommodate people in the evenings and on Saturdays. My office has many copies of the NEB`s Hearing Process Handbook and the Landowner Guide if you would like a copies.

I am also hosting a special Community Information Meeting on January 25th. You can find out more and pre-register for this meeting at LetBCDecide.ca

Thank you and if you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact my office.
