The City of Vancouver will ask the federal government to hold a referendum in Vancouver on the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion proposal.
City Councillor Andrea Reimer says the referendum should be federally funded.
“It should be after the National Energy Board process has concluded, but before federal cabinet considers NEB recommendations, and it should be run under the federal campaign finance rules.”
Reimer adds a referendum would allow constituents to directly provide their viewpoint to the Government of Canada.
The city also plans to host a series of meetings after blasting the National Energy Board for restricting public input on the controversial Kinder Morgan pipeline proposal.
