Canadian Building Trades Unions Calling on Prime Minister Trudeau to Bring Stakeholders to the Table

April 10, 2018 – (Ottawa, ON) – The Canadian Building Trades Unions are calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to hold an emergency meeting by bringing the Kinder Morgan Pipeline stakeholders to the table.

Earlier this week, the future of Trans Mountain pipeline expansion was cast in doubt as Kinder Morgan Canada suspended all non-essential activities and related spending on the project in the face of mounting opposition in British Columbia.

“The last several months has seen unfortunate statements and behavior by certain individuals and this project is too important to our country and our economy to see this happen,” says Robert Blakely, COO of the Canadian Building Trades Unions.  “That is why, it is far time, that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau calls on Premier of British Columbia, the Premier of Alberta, CEO of Kinder Morgan Canada, and all other relevant stakeholder, at the same table and move this project forward in a positive way for Canada, once and for all,” continues Blakely.

Kinder Morgan Canada said it will consult with various stakeholders to try and reach an agreement by May 31 that might allow the project to proceed, adding it needs clarity on its ability in doing construction in B.C. and protect its shareholders.  “The Canadian Building Trades Unions, who represents over 500,000 construction trade workers in Canada, was never included by Kinder Morgan Canada, but wants this project to move forward for the betterment of Canada and its economy,” says Blakely.

“Every day that goes by without commencement of the project is further delay, more cost, and the possibility of the cancellation of the Trans Mountain pipeline and that is why we feel strongly that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau needs to show leadership on this file,” concludes Blakely.
