After years of delays and difficulties, the official start to construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion will kick off Tuesday afternoon.

The pipeline runs from the Edmonton area to a marine terminal in Burnaby, B.C. The expansion will see a second pipeline built roughly parallel to the first that can carry almost twice as much crude oil every day. The beginning of the pipeline is also being re-routed.

Leaders attending the event include Trans Mountain president and CEO Ian Anderson, federal Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan, Alberta Energy Minister Sonya Savage, members of the the Enoch Cree Nation and local government representatives.
