Construction on the Trans Mountain pipeline is poised to start up again after a two month shut down. That means more overcrowded job sites and more risk of COVID transmission into our communities.
As the second wave of the pandemic hit late last fall, B.C. saw an explosion of cases linked to mega-projects like Trans Mountain, LNG Canada and Site C.
Public health officials ordered projects to scale back staffing in the vulnerable Northern Health Region, but left communities along the majority of Trans Mountain’s construction route unprotected — despite a string of COVID safety violations throughout the Lower Mainland.
Building new pipelines at the end of the oil era should never have been classified as an essential service in the first place.
At a bare minimum, the B.C. government needs to order Trans Mountain to follow the same rules as the other mega-projects and keep staffing at safe levels in ALL B.C. communities.
