APTN recently drove the 1,150 km pipeline route from Burnaby, B.C., to Edmonton, Alta in the heat of the Trans Mountain pipeline debate.
Kinder Morgan, the company behind the pipeline said it is putting all non-essential work on hold – and gave the federal government a deadline of May 31 to clear the path, or it would pull out.
The prime minister said he would make it happen. And the premiers of B.C. and Alberta are currently locked in a war of words over the project.
APTN News hit the ground to talk to people in communities that line the pipeline about their concerns, and needs.
