Energy giant Kinder Morgan has blinked in the face of relentless opposition from British Columbia to its plans to build a major oil pipeline.

The Texas multinational energy company announced on Sunday that it was suspending all non-essential spending on its Trans Mountain expansion project, threatening to cancel it if it fails to reach an agreement with B.C. and other stakeholders over how to proceed.

Kinder Morgan has suspended all “non-essential” spending on its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion due to opposition from the British Columbia government, issuing an ultimatum that it won’t commit any more dollars to the $7.4-billion project unless it can get agreement from the province to stand aside by the end of May.

The City of Burnaby is taking its fight with Kinder Morgan over municipal bylaws up to the Supreme Court of Canada. The announcement comes on the heels of the Federal Court of Appeal's refusal on Monday to hear the City of Burnaby’s appeal, leaving the Supreme Court as Burnaby’s last option to enforce its bylaws.

Indigenous Watch House guardian Will George called for a pause in blockades and a "week of ceremony" after 172 people were arrested over the past week blockading Kinder Morgan's pipeline terminal in Burnaby B.C.. George made the announcement on Saturday when 57 people were arrested in a single day blocking the gates to the Texas-based company's tank farm.

The proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion has passed one legal hurdle but still faces another.

The Federal Court of Appeal ruled against the B.C. government’s bid to appeal a National Energy Board ruling allowing Kinder Morgan to bypass local bylaws during construction. The NEB had ruled in December that the energy giant does not have to abide by the City of Burnaby’s zoning and tree-cutting guidelines because the federal scope and jurisdiction of the project supersede local bylaws.
