As the world’s third-largest oil producer, Canada benefits greatly from the export of national resources. Twinning the Trans Mountain Pipeline will increase Canada’s capacity to export these resources by facilitating the movement of oil to the West Coast for marine transport to market. The Trans Mountain project faces significant opposition in BC so it is vitally important that the voices of Albertans are heard.
The Government of Canada has set up a Ministerial Panel to hear from Canadians on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. As part of these engagement efforts, the Government of Canada has launched an online questionnaire for Canadians to submit their feedback on the project. The feedback that the Ministerial Panel receives will help inform the Government’s final decision on the project, expected later this year.
This questionnaire takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and will be online until September 30, 2016. Responses will be provided to the three-member Panel who will be submitting a report to the Minister of Natural Resources, the Honorable Jim Carr, by November 2016.
