Burnaby council has voted to forward an emergency resolution to the Union of BC Municipalities in its latest move against Kinder Morgan’s proposed Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion.
Mayor Derek Corrigan says it’s an effort to try and prevent the energy company from conducting land surveys as it looks to tunnel through Burnaby Mountain.
“Those who believe in a democratic process are frustrated by what’s happening here. It seems that the field is slanted to Kinder Morgan’s advantage.”
The National Energy Board ruled in Kinder Morgan’s favour last week, approving its studying of the Burnaby Mountain route without needing the city’s permission.
The UBCM holds its annual conference next month.
