Former BC Hyrdo CEO Marc Elieson claims the National Energy Board’s review of Kinder Morgan’s proposal to expand its pipeline calls the review a farce whose outcome was decided before the hearings began. In the interview that follows, he explains why he withdrew from the hearings. I combined it with clips from interviews with Greg McDade, lawyer for the City of Burnaby, and Andrew Weaver, MLA for Gordon Head in Victoria, for “Three Intervenors Speak Against Trans Mountain Pipeline Hearings.”
Three Intervenors Speak Against Trans Mountain Pipeline Hearings
In a letter that you can read online, Eliseon calls the hearings “a sham”, “a fraudulent process”, “a public deception whose outcome was decided before the process began”.
Greg McDade says “it is time to question the legitimacy of the whole NEB process, I think it has been suspect from the start.”
” … This particular case is so broken, there is so little trust left in the actual energy board itself, that the B.C. Government has to step in …, ” added Andrew Weaver.
