Infographic: The Trans Mountain pipeline would separate through Kamloops

In the six decades since the Trans Mountain pipeline was laid through Kamloops, the Westsyde neighbourhood has literally grown around it. Kinder Morgan Canada says Westsyde would be one of the many built-up areas where the proposed new pipeline twin would follow a different route. "To avoid passing through Westsyde for several kilometres, an alternative to the west is being considered," the company's National Energy Board application says. "This alternative would follow a right-of-way through Lac Du Bois Grasslands Protected Area." Full story here.

1. Existing line: Refined products, synthetic crude oils and light crude oil
