NEB rules in favour of Trans Mountain on Burnaby dispute

The National Energy Board says Kinder Morgan can begin construction despite permit delays in Burnaby.

The National Energy Board (NEB) has ruled in favour of Kinder Morgan Canada regarding an issue it has with the city of Burnaby concerning permits for the construction of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project.  The company had filed a petition with the NEB in late October because it felt that permit delays in Burnaby were hindering the federally approved project.

The ruling, announced on December 7, states that Kinder Morgan can begin construction immediately, bypassing two sections of Burnaby's bylaws.

“We are pleased with the decision we have received from the NEB today, as it reinforces our view this federally approved project is in the national interest,” Kinder Morgan Canada said in a statement.
