Letter: NEB's system to oppose TMX in Burnaby is clear as mud


Landowners along the 1,000 kilometre (Trans Mountain pipeline) route have a very short window to submit a statement of opposition against the route.

Here are a couple of links to the National Energy Board’s info: https://www.neb-one.gc.ca/bts/nws/rgltrsnpshts/2017/03rgltrsnpsht-eng.html?=undefined&wbdisable=true
Or you can google National Energy Board opposition statement from landowners.
It will take you to a page that is clear as mud, but if you scroll down to the bottom of the info page there is a link to electronically file or you can fax them. Also article 8 of the questions and answers.
Don't be deterred by the fact that they purposely make the forms, process, and everything related to this so irritating you want to give up. Just remember, this is where you live.

It is worth the irritation. But please do know that you have a very short time to do this. I think this should be front page news to all the communities along the route. But the NEB will say we have it posted for everyone to see.

Sure. Okay. Well, hopefully some of you read this and take the time. Because it is literally one of the last chances you have to say anything. By the way, the NEB is the agency responsible for all things TMX, including who you should contact when there is a fire, rupture, explosion, etc., and their preferred method of communication is to be faxed or e-filed. So, let’s send them some faxes and e-files, which they love. Good luck.
