After a full summer of door-knocking, coffee meetings, collecting survey responses, and hosting a Town Hall, I received a lot of valuable feedback from the people of Burnaby North-Seymour on the Trans Mountain pipeline.
The most important part of my job as your Member of Parliament is to listen to you. Over the summer, many residents asked me to provide an opportunity for further scientific and evidence-based discussions on the proposed Trans Mountain Expansion project. I also heard from many in our community who are curious about what action our government is taking to transition towards a green economy.
Based on this feedback, I will be hosting a public forum with a diverse panel of experts in academia and industry to continue the discussion on the Trans Mountain Expansion project and, more broadly, on Canada’s energy future. Fellow Liberal BC MPs and members of Pacific Caucus will also attend the event to hear from the presenters and the public.
What: Public Forum on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project and Canada’s Energy Strategy
Who: Terry Beech, MP for Burnaby North-Seymour and members of Pacific Caucus.
When: 6:30 pm- 8:30 pm, September 7
Where: Diamond Family Auditorium at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby Campus
The public forum will be divided into two segments. The first segment will include brief introductions from MP Terry Beech and members of Pacific Caucus, followed by presentations from five experts in academia and industry.
In the second half of the public forum, members of the public will be invited to share their ideas on Canada’s energy future and provide feedback on the decision-making process surrounding major energy projects in our country. In order to hear from as many people as possible, we ask that each speaker limit their comments to a maximum of two minutes. Following questions from the audience, members of Pacific Caucus will be invited to offer closing remarks.
