In response to reports that Kinder Morgan Canada has applied to the National Energy Board to install even more salmon deterrents, Mike Hudema, climate and energy campaigner with Greenpeace Canada, said:

"Kinder Morgan is trying to bully the National Energy Board, and so far the NEB is letting them get away with it. It's unbelievable that Kinder Morgan, after being caught illegally installing salmon spawning deterrents, would try to twist this scandal into an opportunity to press ahead and install even more. Kinder Morgan should remove the deterrents and apologize for violating the law and for disturbing B.C.'s streams and wildlife.”

“It's time the NEB stood up to the bully. Not only should the board turn down the application, the NEB should force Kinder Morgan to remove the ones that were laid illegally. Unless companies pays a price for breaking the rules, we are going to continue to see these kinds of flagrant violations."
