After questioning Kinder Morgan Canada on failing to respond to all the questions submitted in review hearings, the company has finally responded… sort of.
Vancouver City Councillor Andrea Reimer says the city only got 248 answers out of the 394 that were submitted in National Energy Board review hearings.
On top of that, she says the company has refused to release an emergency plan it promised to make public.
When questioned, Trans Mountain said it “believes it provided robust responses to the questions submitted that were within the scope of the regulatory review.”
It says some information is market sensitive and/or would be a security risk to release.
Trans Mountain added “it is normal in regulatory processes that there are debates about whether questions are appropriate and/or in scope. We understand some intervenors may not be satisfied with the answers we provided.”
The company noted that “intervenors also have another opportunity to ask questions of Trans Mountain in September 2014, and submit their own written evidence in November 2014.”
But no comment yet on why their emergency plan hasn’t been made public.
