City’s Opening Statement at NEB Hearing

In January 2018, the City of Chilliwack participated as an Intervenor in the National Energy Board (NEB) hearing process for the proposed Chilliwack Realignment to the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP).

The Chilliwack Realignment would change the general pipeline corridor and, if approved, would relocate the TMEP within the existing Trans Mountain pipeline right-of-way. The realignment is outside the approved corridor for approximately 1.8 km.

The City of Chilliwack opposes the reroute application. Listen to the full opening statement from Deputy Director of Engineering, Roderick Sanderson, at the NEB hearing on January 17, 2018 below.

Transcripts from the hearing are available on the NEB’s website
