The spat between the mayor of Burnaby and the government of Alberta over the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline must be settled soon.
Alberta and Saskatchewan and the company that wants to build the $7.4 billion project have applied to the National Energy Board for a hearing into the city of Burnaby’s apparent delays in issuing any permits required for the work within its boundaries.
