A Liberal MP is in an uncomfortable position regarding the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion’s approval, and today has opened his office doors to face public concerns.
Terry Beech was elected in the riding of Burnaby North-Seymour, where the project is slated to run through.
Not far from Burnaby Mountain is Beech’s office, where he’s hosting an open house for constituents until 5 p.m. Saturday to discuss the concerns from residents on the Trans Mountain expansion.
Beech had told voters during the election campaign that Justin Trudeau would change the process for reviewing pipeline applications.
Since the Prime Minister approved the pipeline Tuesday, Beech has only tweeted that he received full details of the announcement and would be flying in from Ottawa to discuss the decision.
CKNW has reached out to Beech to request comment.
