Full Episode: Was The Economic Benefit For B.C. One Of The Reasons Why You Supported The Pipeline Project? Does The Lack Of Consultation From Kinder Morgan About Potential Jobs For Bc Residents Concern You?
7 days ago
Earlier this week, the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project cleared a major milestone as the B.C. government announced its approval of the pipeline. Premier Clark said that the project had met the government’s five conditions, which included a financial deal with Kinder Morgan worth up to $1-billion in revenue-sharing payments over the next two decades. One of the conditions put forth by the BC government is that the project must “include a fair share of economic benefits of British Columbia”. Kinder Morgan said the project would create more than 15,000 jobs in construction per year between 2017 and 2019, and the government has said that British Columbians are set to be first in line for thousands of jobs associated with the planned expansion of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. However, in a recent Globe and Mail article written by Ian Bailey, union leaders have expressed concern over the lack of information that they have received from the company about the large project.
