A group who was looking to convince Kamloops Council to oppose the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion didn’t get very far this week.
Mayor Ken Christian says the matter was just not on the council agenda when the group tried to force the issue and they were quickly asked to leave.
Christian was quick to note the city has already signed an community benefit agreement with Kinder Morgan as has Tk’emlúps First Nation.
“The city has a community benefit agreement with Kinder Morgan. We’ve also talked to them about re-routing the line away from Westsyde and through an existing right of way in the Lac Du Bois area. We’ve talked to them about renting property at the Kamloops Airport for the river crossing, and we’ve also talked to them about the routing through Kenna Cartwright Park.”
Christian says Kinder Morgan has been very available to discuss any issue the city has over the last six years or so.
