Pipeline info meeting Jan. 25

People wanting to learn how they can participate in upcoming National Energy Board (NEB) hearings on the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion are invited to attend a meeting on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 3 to 5 p.m. at Confederation Community Centre, 4585 Albert St. in Burnaby.

The meeting is part of an initiative by Burnaby-Douglas New Democrat MP Kennedy Stewart to help people get involved in the process after the NEB cancelled its own local information meetings, holding online sessions instead.

Last month, Kinder Morgan filed its formal application with the NEB to almost triple the capacity of its Trans Mountain pipeline, which runs between Edmonton and Burnaby. The proposal would significantly increase tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet as it is aimed at increasing exports of oil sands crude oil to overseas markets.

Those planning to attend the meeting are asked to pre-register at http://bit.ly/1a103Se and visit www.letbcdecide.ca for more information.
