On 5 December 2018, Intervenors (other than federal departments and agencies) filed direct evidence with the National Energy Board (NEB) in relation to Project-relate marine shipping, including mitigation measures, alternative means and requirements of any follow-up programme.
The submission is part of the Reconsideration hearing for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. The hearing will consider any necessary changes or additions to the NEB’s May 2016 Recommendation Report, in light of the inclusion of Project-related marine shipping between the Westridge Marine Terminal and the 12 nautical mile territorial sea limit in the ‘designated project’ under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012).
