Public Interest Evaluation
Submitted by: Living Oceans Society
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.
