Federal Government Approves Kinder Morgan – should we accept an agreement?

The federal government has now given approval for Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP) – soon members of our communities will vote whether or not to support an agreement regarding this project.

Because government approval was likely and our conversations with Kinder Morgan were not complete, we needed to have a plan in place. Recognizing this, the Chiefs of the communities signed a conditional Mutual Benefits Agreement (MBA).  This does not commit us to supporting the project; it gives us time to decide as a community if we should support the agreement.

Over the coming weeks, we will be meeting and discussing the project and agreement in more depth to ensure members can make an informed decision. Members will then vote by March 31, 2017 — details are to come.

The communities involved in this decision are: Aitchelitz, Skowkale, Shxwhá:y, Soowahlie, Squiala, Tzeachten, Yakweakwioose, Skwah, and Kwaw Kwaw Apilt.
