CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - Canada's energy regulator on Thursday ruled in favor of Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd in its appeal over municipal permits for the company's C$7.4 billion ($5.8 billion) Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

The company, a unit of Houston-based Kinder Morgan Inc, can proceed with construction work without complying with certain bylaws from the city of Burnaby, British Columbia, through which the pipeline passes, the regulator said.
