Kinder Morgan admits using 'defective equipment' and making 'calculation error'

Kinder Morgan's Canadian subsidiary, Trans Mountain, says a "calculation error" was the cause of mistakes in a report that failed to identify environmental violations committed during recent construction activity in May. The violations of the federal Fisheries Act have been an ongoing problem at the Westridge Marine Terminal in metro Vancouver, National Observer reported on June 12.

Life and death at Trans Mountain pipeline

David Dodge, former Bank of Canada governor, advisor to Alberta’s NDP government, made a grim prediction about the pipeline: “There are some people that are going to die in protesting construction of this pipeline. We have to understand that. Nevertheless, we have to be willing to enforce the law,” Dodge told a forum in Edmonton. Kevin Taft weighs in on Dodge's foreboding words.
