Canadian Energy Board Recommends Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion

WASHINGTON - The National Energy Board of Canada today gave its stamp of approval to an expansion of the Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline that would make it 60,000 barrels per day larger than the rejected Keystone XL pipeline proposal. If final approval is given by the federal government of Canada sometime later this year, the Trans Mountain pipeline capacity would almost triple, increasing the number of oil tankers plying the waters of the Salish Sea from one per week to one per day.
