Two new challenges threaten proposed pipelines


The North Coast nation filed its court action in July over the federal cabinet decision to approve the pipeline, which would link the Alberta oil sands with a marine terminal on the B.C. north coast.

Reports indicate it has been given the green light for a judicial review of the controversial $7 billion project proposed by Calgary-based Enbridge.

However, it’s unlikely the court will hear the case for months because several other project related lawsuits have been filed.

Meantime, the Mayor of Burnaby was a pipeline resolution winner and loser last week at the UBCM Convention in Whistler.

Delegates rejected his motion to oppose the Kinder Morgan, Trans-Mountain pipeline expansion project, but approved one for a separate call to open up the federal review and allow cross examination of company officials.

Delegates also approved a resolution calling for the province to do its own environmental review of the project.
