VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – A local First Nation is bringing Kinder Morgan and the National Energy Board to the federal court of appeal, as it argues it was not appropriately consulted about the proposed twinning of the Trans Mountain pipeline.

The Tsleil-Waututh Nation hopes to force a restart of the environmental assessment process for that project.

“What we’re trying to bring forward is not to bring harm to anybody in Canada,” says Chief Maureen Thomas. “What we’re trying to do is to bring well-being to our community and everyone else. We’re not here to be a problem for the government.”
