OTTAWA, Nov. 29, 2017 /CNW/ - "Canadians want an energy system that creates good, middle-class jobs while protecting and preserving the environment for future generations.
"Yesterday, Canada filed a letter to the National Energy Board, indicating the Government's support for establishing a Standing Panel to determine ongoing compliance by Kinder Morgan for the project conditions of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion.
"The Government has taken an important step to ensure that when a natural resource project is approved, it proceeds in a timely fashion and continues to generate economic benefits for all Canadians.
"The Government is supportive of establishing a process that would assist in resolving any conflicts over the issuance of municipal or provincial permits and avoid unnecessary delays to project construction or regulatory compliance."
