AUMA was very pleased to see that the federal cabinet once again approved the Trans Mountain Pipeline. Market access is critical to ensure that Albertans get a fair price for their resources. The project will create jobs and tax revenues for Alberta and BC municipalities at a time when they are critically needed.
The government is currently estimating that construction will resume this year and indicated plans were being drafted and regulations were ready to move forward. The Prime Minister indicated that any federal revenues from ownership of the pipeline or generated from its eventual sale would be invested in green energy projects.
Our members have been very vocal in their support of this project through several AUMA advocacy campaigns. New developments will be shared with members here on Digest so watch for more information as it emerges.
