Trans Mountain is going ahead with its pipeline expansion project without permission and should be stopped, according to the City of Burnaby.
The city’s lawyer, Gregory McDade, sent a letter to the National Energy Board on Dec. 21 accusing the company of “unpermitted activities related to the TMEP (Trans Mountain Expansion Project).”
But Trans Mountain maintains all work ongoing at the tank farm is related to permitted pipe relocation and decommission work – not the expansion project that was halted following a Federal Court of Appeal ruling in August, 2018.
Mayor Mike Hurley told the NOW he wasn’t convinced Trans Mountain is playing by the rules.
