Toronto (May 29, 2018) — Today, the Government of Canada announced its $4.5 billion purchase of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline to enable its inter-provincial expansion and selected BLG as its legal representation to support the purchase. 

BLG’s involvement in the deal was a nationwide, multidisciplinary effort, involving a team of legal professionals including 15 experts across fields such as Oil and Gas, Securities and Capital Markets, Regulatory, Commercial Litigation, Public-Private Infrastructure Projects and Labour and Employment.
