You can’t blame Trans Mountain Corp. President/CEO Ian Anderson and his staff if they are sitting on the edge of their seats. The Calgary, Alberta-based pipeline company is awaiting a final decision expected next week from federal lawmakers in Ottawa concerning a multibillion-dollar expansion project designed to bring additional Canadian oil to tidewater and help make sure Canada gets full value for its oil.
Whatever decision comes down, Anderson and his staff can take comfort knowing their reputation for integrity with local communities, including indigenous peoples, has never wavered. They don’t promise what they might not be able to deliver, and what they do promise, they deliver on. It’s a policy that has been in place over the 65 years since the initial oil pipeline from the Edmonton area into Burnaby, B.C., was constructed.
