  No less controversial, Trans Mountain continues on with expansion project Construction crews remain busy driving piles for new facilities at Trans Mountain’s Westridge marine terminal on Burrard Inlet and clearing land at the Burnaby Mountain terminus of its pipeline, but industry leaders remain apprehensive about the expansion project. “Everyone is guarded about what does this mean,” said Chris Gardner, president of the Independent Contractors and Business Association about last week’s announcement that construction on the $7.4 billion project had officially restarted.

The Crown corporation that owns the project has already mobilized its workforce and restarted some work at the pipeline's terminals, since the federal Liberal government approved the $7.4-billion expansion for the second time earlier this year.

The Federal Court of Appeal is currently reviewing an appeal by Indigenous groups of that second approval.

Premier Jason Kenney has called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau frequently to push ahead with construction on the project, and blamed the federal Liberals for delays. The two are set to meet in Ottawa next week.

Trans Mountain has said it expects 4,200 workers to be employed along the pipeline corridor by the end of the year.

The pipeline expansion will carry 890,000 barrels of oil per day, tripling its capacity, from Alberta to the B.C. coast once completed.

It's set to be finished by mid-2022.
