Earlier, we reported Energy, Mines and Petroleum Development Minister Rich Neufeld met with Kinder Morgan Inc. chairman and chief executive officer Rich Kinder while attending the North American Prospect Expo. But incremental pricing for residential electricity customers wasn't the only topic talked about at that meeting. According to a government summary, "Vancouver Terminals" were also discussed. But the specifics of that discussion - which occured on February 2 - appear to have been blacked out using section 21 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Section 21 allows for the severing of information that might be "harmful to the business interests of a third party." As our astute readers may be aware, the government-owned British Columbia Railway Co. announced on Tuesday that it had entered into a "long-term lease" with Kinder-Morgan "to operate Vancouver Wharves."
