Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr said Sunday that the decision by Kinder Morgan to halt the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion was the result of “uncertainty” of the project due to continued opposition by the B.C. NDP government and said “enough is enough.”

Kinder Morgan Canada Limited (KML) has suspended all “non-essential activities and related spending” on the expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline, the company said in a Sunday news release.

The release said that the company will “not commit additional shareholder resources” to the project in light of “continued actions in opposition to the project” by B.C.’s provincial government.

Kinder Morgan said it would consult with stakeholders with a view to reaching agreements by May 31 that “may allow the project to proceed.”
