CBC: B.C. business leaders announce campaign in support of Trans Mountain pipeline

  • April 12, 2018

Representatives of industry associations met in Vancouver on Thursday morning to announce plans for a campaign supporting the completion of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

The assembled business leaders said they believe that Canada's reputation as a safe place to invest is at risk if Kinder Morgan's plans for the pipeline aren't allowed to proceed.

"We're at a point of crisis of confidence in Canada, a crisis that needs leadership and immediate attention to resolve," Greg D'Avignon, president and CEO of the Business Council of British Columbia, told reporters.

The group have written a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, B.C. Premier John Horgan and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, urging them to take action to make sure the pipeline expansion is completed.
