Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. is projecting that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project could be a year behind schedule as it continues to encounter permitting delays.

The estimate is three months further behind from the company's last estimate in December, and now potentially puts the $7.4-billion project in service by Dec. 2020 depending on regulatory, permit and legal approvals.

In 2002, Dr. Ian Keith, a senior DFO veterinarian, began noticing strange heart lesions when he examined Atlantic salmon from B.C.’s growing fish farm industry.

Keith was likely the first to detect signs of Heart and Skeletal Muscle Inflammation. The disease, first found three years earlier in Norwegian farmed salmon, went on to plague the industry there, killing up to 20 per cent of salmon in some outbreaks.

Two anti-pipeline protesters who were arrested after police forced their way into a camper on Burnaby Mountain Wednesday evening are facing obstruction charges. 

The RCMP said the First Nations women locked themselves inside while officers were trying to execute a warrant at the camper, which is parked at the protest site across the street from Kinder Morgan’s TransMountain pipeline terminal.

Videos captured by activists depict a chaotic scene, with onlookers screaming as a large group of Mounties surround the camper and use a battering ram to break open the door.

An anti-pipeline protester refused to get off the roof of an illegally parked camper Wednesday afternoon on Burnaby Mountain, preventing the city from towing it away from near Kinder Morgan's oil tank farm.

Members of Burnaby RCMP detachment unsuccessfully attempted to talk her down, warning police could return to arrest her, potentially leading to a judge banning her from the area altogether.

Burnaby Now

Kinder Morgan has been denied its request to start construction on a tunnel through Burnaby Mountain, the National Energy Board announced on December 22. 

As part of its $7.4-billion Trans Mountain expansion project, Kinder Morgan wants to connect its Burnaby Terminal and Westridge Marine Terminal with a tunnel. The company has said it went with the tunnel option in order to avoid going through residential neighbourhoods.
