TRIPLING CAPACITY

Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion plans to transport 890,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil from Edmonton to Vancouver. Tanker visits to Vancouver will increase by 574% from 2010 levels to 408 oil tankers every year. Oil storage capacity at Burnaby will also triple with 14 new tanks increasing capacity by 3,900,000 barrels. The vast majority of oil is for export, not Canadian use. That means 816 tankers transits to and from Burrard Inlet via the Strait of Georgia, past the Fraser estuary and the Gulf Islands, through Haro Strait and Juan de Fuca Strait.

OIL AND STATE

As a result of Bill C-38 and a dramatically weakened Canadian Environmental Assessment Act under the Stephen Harper government, applicants for public participation in the National Energy Board (NEB) review of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Expansion proposal had to prove they were either “directly affected” or had relevant knowledge or expertise. This qualification, coupled with a seemingly intentionally onerous online application process, left many individuals and community groups and businesses excluded from sharing their opinions within the review process.
