THE PAST SIX YEARS have brought quite a roller coaster ride for the Trans Mountain pipeline.
The multi-billion dollar expansion project has looked to be on its death bed a number of times, only to be revived.
When at times the National Energy Board and the B.C. Supreme Court seemed to be clearing the way for the pipeline to be built, other hurdles would be put up.
Kinder Morgan itself lost confidence in the project’s prospects, selling it to the Canadian government at the first opportunity.
So after the latest decision from the federal Court of Appeal, it still feels premature to declare the project dead.
