Open Letter: Andrew Weaver urges Prime Minister Trudeau to reject the Trans Mountain Kinder Morgan Expansion Project

November 18, 2016

Victoria, B.C. - As we near the deadline for the federal government’s final decision on the Trans Mountain Kinder Morgan Expansion Project, Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party, is becoming increasingly worried our province may be lead in a dangerous direction. In an extensive letter to the Prime Minister, Weaver details why this project must be rejected.

Weaver sought intervention status in the Trans Mountain National Energy Board Hearing both as a Member of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia and as a scientist with a doctorate in applied mathematics and with specialty in physical oceanography and atmospheric and climate science. As an MLA Weaver represents the constituency of Oak Bay-Gordon Head, which is located along the Trans Mountain Tanker Sailing Route on the southeastern tip of Vancouver Island. He was also the only BC MLA with intervenor status in the hearing process.
