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

The decision in July to temporarily stop pipeline loans had been applauded by environmental groups and First Nations opposed to oilsands development who urged the Quebec credit union to make the freeze permanent.
