Business Chambers Join Forces To Push Feds and B.C. To Get Trans Mountain Built

Abbotsford/Surrey/Chilliwack – As popular support for the twining of the Trans Mountain Pipeline grows, as well as recent support from a number of First Nations, a coalition of 24 Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade are calling on the federal government and the government of B.C. to clear all barriers to getting the federally approved Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project built.
These organizations represent the communities where the pipeline has operated safely for 65 years.
Trans Mountain is the most efficient route to access new markets, providing billions in profits, taxes, jobs, tolls and royalties that all Canadians benefit from. Completing this project will send a strong signal that Canada is a stable and reliable destination for investment.
“Allowing one province to derail this multibillion-dollar project will give Canada a black eye with investors and job creators in traditional energy, renewable energy and, in fact, across every sector. We need action now,” said the Chambers and Boards of Trade, who represent 60,000 businesses, in a joint letter to Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier John Horgan.
The letter was signed by the leaders of:
Canadian Chamber of Commerce
Alberta Chambers of Commerce
BC Chamber of Commerce
Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce
Calgary Chamber of Commerce
Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce
Cloverdale District Chamber of Commerce
Edmonton Chamber of Commerce
Edson & District Chamber of Commerce
