Communica's Pulse Check – A “Behind-The-Scenes” Bi-Monthly Report

May 16, 2017

Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP) is currently one of the most closely watched infrastructure developments in Canada. The Project has been approved by the federal government and Kinder Morgan has indicated that construction is scheduled to commence in September 2017.

As we enter the province of BC’s post-election phase and closer to potential construction, this Project will become increasingly controversial.

For many, the TMEP represents virtually the only opportunity for Canadian production to access Pacific coastal tidewater for export to Asian markets.  For many others, the TMEP represents environmental, safety and lifestyle disruption that needs to be prevented.

Communica’s team in Vancouver has been following developments related to TMEP and other major infrastructure projects in BC, and Pulse Check represents intelligence gathering and analysis on what is occurring on the ground, beyond media headlines. We have firsthand exposure (and access) to the narrative surrounding the TMEP and we want to share this insight with you.

This May, we have launched Pulse Check. Pulse Check is a bi-monthly newsletter that offers an exclusive all-encompassing view into the activity surrounding the TMEP.  At Communica, we are on the front-line every day in British Columbia and Alberta helping clients make sense of these highly dynamic times.  From this vantage point, we are able to sift through the traditional and social media noise for what actually matters and marry that with what we are seeing directly in the field. We use this information to interpret what is going on, and Pulse Check will deliver the reality assessment you need to truly understand risk and assess opportunity.

To give you a taste of what’s to come, we’re offering our first edition free for you to read, absorb and determine whether you would find the information useful to you on a regular subscription basis.

Commencing June 2017, a subscription for Pulse Check will be available for a monthly fee. We intend to continue publishing the newsletters until construction is complete and TMEP in is service.
