Topic: Kinder Morgan Pipeline / Bill 12

Issue Statement:

The Canadian Fuels Association (Canadian Fuels) and its members support the expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipe Line (TMPL) as an infrastructure project of national importance. Canadian Fuels acknowledges and appreciates the commitment Alberta has shown to the TMPL expansion project and to the energy sector.  

However, we are concerned that the measures proposed in Bill 12 could have long-term unintended consequences for people in Alberta and British Columbia, and to the economic well-being of energy businesses on both sides of the border that has long-made this interprovincial relationship so strong.  A thriving transportation fuels refining sector is vitally important to Canadians in B.C., Alberta and across the country. Canadian Fuels members value their commercial and consumer customers nation-wide.

We urge the Alberta government to be cautious with an approach that could affect the integrated nature of the sector, and to continue to explore other potential solutions.
