Elizabeth May says she will be speaking at the upcoming National Energy Board hearing because she says the process deciding the fate of the Trans-Mountain pipeline proposal is deeply flawed.
The future of Kinder Morgan’s proposed expansion is set to be determined next spring.
The federal Green Party leader says the process has been ripe with controversy.
“Until the previous government changed the rules, the National Energy Board never would have considered holding hearings, where intervenors had no right to cross examine. I find the process so deeply unfair that I’m staying involved in order to be able to sue them for running a very unfair process.”
If approved, the Trans-Mountain pipeline will triple the amount of oilsands bitumen reaching Vancouver’s coast.
