The chair of the National Energy Board is meeting with local mayors to try address frustrations over the review process into the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.
But at least one Metro Vancouver mayor thinks the move might be too little too late.
New Westminster mayor Jonathan Cote met with Peter Watson this week to share his frustrations with the review process.
“I think they are playing a bit of catch up and maybe they have been caught off guard particularily with how the process has gone in Metro Vancouver.I think it is important they are making that step but certainly these types of discussions should have been happening a lot earlier.”
Municipalities registered as intervenors have been frustrated with a lack of answers to questions directed at Kinder Morgan, and the inability to cross examine witnesses the pipeline company puts forward.
