Trans Mountain pipeline work stopped before it starts in British Columbia

“The British Columbia provincial government is taking legal and administrative action to stop the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion” writes Lynda V for seattletimes.com. Kinder Morgan wants to twin an existing pipeline from Alberta to carry tar-sands oil to the coast for export.The British Columbia provincial government has monkey-wrenched the start of construction for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, announcing Thursday that it is taking legal and administrative steps to stop the project.Many Washington conservation groups also oppose it, out of concern for oil spills and survival of the endangered southern resident killer whale, which transits the area of the oil tanker route.The government also will seek to join in legal challenges to the federal approval of the pipeline last year, Heyman said.
