“The spill comes days before a deadline set by Kinder Morgan for its controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

The company suspended all non-essential construction on the project in April, citing opposition from the B.C. government that put the viability of the pipeline in question.

It has set a May 31 deadline for getting assurances it can proceed without delays on the controversial project.

“B.C. politicians, Indigenous leaders and environmentalists say the future of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline is in doubt.

On Sunday the company announced it would suspend all “non-essential activities” and related spending for the Trans Mountain pipeline project, citing ongoing opposition from the British Columbia government.

“I’m greatly encouraged by this news,” said Grand Chief Stewart Phillip with the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs.”
