Public Interest Evaluation

Submitted by: Living Oceans Society

The evidence:

Kinder Morgan’s evidence that KMX is required and in the public interest is incomplete and deficient, as it:

  • uses gross economic impacts as the primary measure of contribution to the public interest, rather than net impacts and net economic benefits;
  • overstates the need for the project;
  • understates costs by omitting environmental impacts;
  • fails to provide any benefit cost analysis.

This study determined KMX results in a net cost to Canada of $4.1 to $22.1 billion.
