BC Chamber of Commerce Supports Recommendations of National Energy Board to move forward with the TMX

Agrees in the importance of prudence when balancing environmental and economic impacts


VANCOUVER, BC. Feb. 22, 2019 – The BC Chamber of Commerce supports a report released today by the National Energy Board (NEB), which recommends the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion project is in the Canadian public interest and should move forward. 

The BC Chamber of Commerce also applauds the NEB’s commitment to balancing environmental concerns with the vast economic benefits to Canadians. (The recommendation is subject to 156 conditions, and 16 additional recommendations to the Government of Canada that are outside the NEB’s mandate.) 

“What we do want to reiterate is the importance of the TMX to our national economy, and along with the Canadian Chamber, we strongly urge the federal government to abide by the NEB’s 90-day timeline to make a positive decision on the project,” says Litwin.
