Indigenous people in British Columbia are voicing support for the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline, especially business people and those who live along the pipeline's proposed route. A joint effort of the Edmonton and Calgary chambers of commerce and the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade brought business leaders together in downtown Edmonton on May 17, where they were addressed by Premier Rachel Notley. Attendee Keith Matthew, member of the Simpcw First Nation and businessman, believe that Indigenous people must be supportive and involved in the process in order to benefit from the pipeline.
