The Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Natural Resources, has announced the Government of Canada’s path forward on the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project. The National Energy Board (NEB) has been tasked with reconsidering its recommendations on the effects of project-related marine shipping. The NEB will be required to complete a thorough and prompt review and deliver its report within 22 weeks. In addition, the Government will present what actions will be taken to protect the southern resident killer whale. A special marine technical advisor will be appointed to the NEB. We are committed to ensuring that the NEB has the expertise and capacity to deliver the best advice to the Government.
