Appeal Court quashes approval of Trans Mountain pipeline expansion

Court quashes Trudeau’s approval of Trans Mountain pipeline By Mike De Souza in News Energy |
August 30th 2018

Environmentalists, especially in B.C. have also opposed the construction of the project.

Moreover, it underscored a gap between rhetoric and action when it comes to Trudeau's oft-stated vow to make reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples his top priority.

In a written decision, the court indicated that the National Energy Board's review of the expansion project was "so flawed" that the Trudeau Government couldn't rely on it as the basis for its approval of the project back in 2016.

It also ruled Ottawa had failed to meaningfully consult First Nations before approving the project.

Morneau said the court decision was part of "important next steps in getting this project built in the right way, and for the benefit of all Canadians".

"Instead, he offered one delay after another, and the ruling today shows that he couldn't even carry out his own government's consultation process".

"The time for Canadian niceties is over", said Notley.

Opponents of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project were cheering their victory after the Federal Court of Appeal's decision Thursday morning that basically quashed the approval of the pipeline expansion. "Today the Federal Court of Appeal has validated those concerns", Horgan said.

A court had earlier quashed the government's approval of expanding the Trans Mountain pipeline to the Pacific, siding with indigenous people anxious that increased tanker traffic will harm whales along the coast. Corporate concerns with viability of the project are clearly well founded.

"They just don't know what they're doing".

Asked if the federal authorities would allure the decision, Morneau would only grunt he's reviewing the narrative first.In the come term, Kinder Morgan Canada is making ready to live construction, which had right begun in new days on the pipeline route in Alberta."Trans Mountain is now taking measures to hunch construction linked actions on the mission is a stable and smooth formula", Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. president Ian Anderson acknowledged in a delivery, adding that a favourable decision was no longer a situation of the company's sale of the mission to Ottawa.Ironically, Kinder Morgan Canada shareholders voted overwhelmingly to sell the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion mission to the Canadian federal authorities no longer up to an hour after a come to a name quashed the mission's construction certificates.

"If the federal government acts boldly and gives this crisis the attention it deserves, construction can restart early in the new year". Secondly, the government did not establish a dialog with First Nations to understand and address their concerns regarding the pipeline's impacts. "And they paid too much for it".

Trudeau himself laid out for students Wednesday how the pipeline is a crucial piece of his government's climate change and economic growth puzzle.

"We would like to see a NAFTA agreement sooner rather than later", he said.

"Let's be clear, without Alberta, that plan isn't worth the paper it's written on", she told a news conference the evening of August 30 in Edmonton.

"Some people are wondering why we're building a new pipeline if we're really serious about dealing with climate change", Trudeau acknowledged. You can nearly hear the sighs of relief from the chief executives of utilities and pension plans across the country, who were all offered a chance to buy into Trans Mountain over the past few years, and who all said no to Kinder Morgan. We need to hold the federal government to account for their failures on this project and ensure a fair, safe and consistent regulatory environment."Leader Ryan Meili said".

Trudeau took a political gamble when his government approved the project in 2016 after an environmental review, saying it was in the "national interest" as it would help ease Canada's reliance on the U.S. market, and get a better price for its crude oil.

The court ruled that the energy board review contained a fatal flaw: it excluded the project's impact on marine shipping.

The court, however, found those improvements, in practice, fell far short of what's required.
