Restart of Trans Mountain pipeline after Abbotsford spill surprising, frustrating for Sumas Chief

"ABBOTSFORD (NEWS 1130) — The Chief of the Sumas First Nation was surprised to learn the Trans Mountain pipeline has restarted, and says openness and transparency have been sorely lacking since Saturday’s spill.

The Crown-owned company estimates as much as 1,195 barrels, or 190,000 litres, of light crude spilled from its pipeline at the Sumas Pump Station in Abbotsford.

Chief Dalton Silver says getting trying to get accurate information has been frustrating."
