Chilliwack-Hope MP seeks feedback on Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion

Mark Strahl puts out one-question survey on the Trans Mountain project

Construction on a stretch of Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion in Alberta.

There’s no room for a nuanced response — a “yes, but” or a “no, and” — still, Chilliwack-Hope MP Mark Strahl is looking for constituent feedback on Kinder Morgan’s proposed Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project (TMX).

Strahl has created a one-question online survey regarding the project to be approved or not approved soon.

“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said he will make a decision on this pipeline expansion project by mid-December,” Strahl said in a media release. “I want to hear from my constituents on this issue.”

The survey simply asks for a “yes” or “no” response to the following question: “What do you think?”

The proposed $6.8 billion TMX would triple the capacity of the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline that runs 1,150 kilometres from Alberta to Burnaby. Strahl has particular interest in the project as it crosses right through his riding from Hope all the way through Chilliwack, underneath the Vedder River right to the western edge of Yarrow and into Abbotsford.

Strahl invites constituents to take the survey to make their opinion on the matter known by Nov. 30. To do so visit www.markstrahl.com/haveyoursay
