Read the Kinder Morgan Assessment Report
The proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project lies within the Consultation Area of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation. Therefore, it was necessary that we carried out our own assessment of the proposed project under our Stewardship Policy. The Kinder Morgan assessment report provides a summary of our appraisal of the components of the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project. It describes the seriousness of the potential effects of the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project on Tsleil-Waututh title, rights, and interests.
