As the world’s third-largest oil producer, Canada benefits greatly from the export of national resources. Twinning the Trans Mountain Pipeline will increase Canada’s capacity to export these resources by facilitating the movement of oil to the West Coast for marine transport to market. It will further secure the supply of oil products to the Lower Mainland for use by BC’s residents and businesses. The project will also lead to new jobs in the short and long term, job-related training opportunities, and increases in taxes collected through all three levels of government.
