More on Kennedy's work to stop Kinder Morgan
About the Kinder Morgan pipeline
Owned by Kinder Morgan Canada, the Trans Mountain pipeline transports 300,000 barrels of oil products per day from Edmonton to Burnaby for domestic use in Metro Vancouver. In 2016, the federal government approved Kinder Morgan’s proposal to build 980 km of new pipeline to transport unrefined diluted bitumen to the Port of Vancouver for export by tanker to foreign countries, expanding the total pipeline capacity to 890,000 barrels. Despite the approval, the project had stalled due to opposition in British Columbia, and on May 29, 2018, the Trudeau government announced it would buy the existing pipeline from Kinder Morgan and complete the expansion.
