Canadian Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, the Honourable Perrin Beatty, issued the following statement today in response to the National Energy Board findings on the TransMountain Expansion Project:

“The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is pleased that the National Energy Board (NEB) has confirmed that the TransMountain Expansion Project is in the national interest.

TransMountain has clearly met its obligations, and now it is up to the federal government to take the steps necessary for getting this pipeline built without any further delay.  

Given the importance of this project to our national economy, the Canadian Chamber urges the federal government to abide by the NEB’s 90-day timeline to make a positive decision on the project.

Today’s decision is an important step forward for the vital project to get Canadian oil to international markets. Its completion will not only create jobs across Canada but also ensure that Canada finally realizes its potential to supply the world with low emission oil and gas products.”
