KAMLOOPS — Tomorrow begins two days of round table discussions in Kamloops into the proposed Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

The panel will report back to the federal Ministers of Environment and Natural Resources later this year.

Panelist Kim Baird says the group will hear from First Nations, local governments, and anyone else with a perspective on the proposal.

"Our terms of reference are to listen to any outstanding concerns people may have in relation to this project. Things that the current regulatory processes may have missed, whether that may be the National Energy Board reports and those things," explained Baird. 

The hearings begin tomorrow morning (July 18) at 9:00, and will be held at the Irving K. Barber Centre at Thompson Rivers University.
