FORT ST. JOHN – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies, issued the following statement regarding the Federal Court of Appeal ruling against the approval of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project:
“I am extremely disappointed in the ruling made by the Federal Court of Appeal today which will only mean more legal hurdles for a project that has already undergone a lengthy approval process.
“With this decision we are sending a message to potential investors that we are closed for business. Canada is one of the cleanest natural resource producers in the world with a great respect for human rights. Unfortunately the court didn’t seem to take that into consideration.
“My Conservative colleagues and I will continue to voice our strong support for our natural resource sector and the vital role it plays in our national economy.”
