Kinder Morgan-Spill Restriction

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Alberta Premier Rachel Notley called an emergency cabinet meeting to discuss B-C’s proposal to restrict increases in shipments of diluted bitumen. B-C Environment Minister George Heyman says the proposed ban on the increase of oil exports would be imposed until it can be determined through an advisory panel that shippers are able to properly clean up any spill. Environmental groups say the proposal deals a possibly fatal blow to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion from Alberta to Burnaby, after it received federal government approval. Notley has called the plan illegal and unconstitutional and said it would jeopardize investment decisions and hundreds of thousands of jobs across a range of industries.
