    Kamloops Chamber Celebrates Approval of the TMX Pipeline.
     
    Kamloops – June 18, 2019 – The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce is pleased that the National Energy Board has confirmed that the Trans Mountain Expansion Project has been approved. The Kamloops Chamber has been an advocate for this project and is celebrating today’s announcement.
    The Trans Mountain Expansion is projected to inject $46.7 billion into the Canadian economy, and will provide much needed revenue to fund many of the social, health and education services that Canadians, British Columbians and Kamloopsians rely on. Today’s decision is an important step forward for the vital project to get Canadian oil to international markets.  
    The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce signed on as a partner in the Confidence in Canada coalition that last year mobilized over 140 local and national organizations, companies, and communities in support of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Project.
