In what an economist calls an "unfair" decision, the National Energy Board has allowed Kinder Morgan to build a $136 million 'war chest' to fund its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion application through shipping surcharges. The charge, called a "firm service fee", allows Texas-based pipeline company Kinder Morgan to offload the cost of the pipeline application to Canadian shippers.
