A public hearing is being planned by the National Energy Board for the Trans Mountain Pipeline.

The NEB is looking for public input on changing part of their environmental plan for the expansion project.

This comes after the federal court of appeal halted construction after finding their application made a crucial error when it came to limiting the potential harm to the southern resident killer whale.

“The NEB will carry out its reconsideration related to the Trans Mountain Expansion Project as directed by the Order in Council, and in a fair, efficient, and accessible manner,” said Peter Watson, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of the NEB, in a release.

Interested parties will have until October 3, 2018, to sign up.

No date has been set, so far, for the public hearing, however, the federal government has given the NEB a timeline of February 22 to complete a new report with updated recommendations around the project-related marine shipping.

“I am confident in the NEB’s ability to complete a thorough examination of the matters directed by the Government within the required timeline,” added Watson.
