As a result of the uncertainty created by the Government of British Columbia, Kinder Morgan announced their intention to suspend all non-essential spending on the federally and provincially approved Trans Mountain Pipeline.
This is no longer an issue about whether a pipeline should be built. It’s an issue of whether or not businesses – large or small, across our economy – can invest with confidence knowing the rules won’t change after the fact.

Family-supporting jobs and small business, billions in new tax revenues for schools and hospitals, and ultimately Canada’s global reputation as a country for safe and secure investment is at serious risk.
