According to a few tweets on Twitter, it would appear that Sooke mayor Maja Tait has added her voice to other mayors who are requesting that more public consultation take place before the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (Kinder Morgan) is approved. They want the federal government to reject approval for the construction of the pipeline. The pipeline, if approved, will move 900,000 barrels of oil a day.

Sooke Council has previously expressed concerns about potential damage to the Juan de Fuca coastline should a significant oil spill from water transport occur.
No official statement has been released from the District of Sooke.
