BCCA Commends Ruling in Favour of Trans Mountain Pipeline Project
The BC Construction Association welcomes today’s decision by the federal cabinet to proceed with the Trans Mountain Pipeline Project. For the apprentices and tradespeople in BC’s industrial, commercial and institutional construction sector, the project represents not just an opportunity to develop their skills and gain valuable experience, but the opportunity to secure meaningful employment that supports their families and their communities. And while an infrastructure project such as this plays a key role in B.C.’s workforce development, we agree that it must only take place in a way that respects Canada’s commitments to environmental responsibility and meaningful engagement with Indigenous people an organizations.
