Kinder Morgan is an unwanted pipeline in BC. Municipalities across the province have passed motions opposing Kinder Morgan’s proposal and expressing deep concerns about the National Energy Board review and emergency response plans. Over 100 First Nations and tribes from across North America have signed a declaration banning tar sands pipelines from their territories under indigenous law. Business leaders like the former CEOs of BC Hydro and ICBC are speaking out in opposition, and dozens of legal challenges have been filed against the project. In late 2014, when Kinder Morgan tried to conduct test drilling on Burnaby Mountain, hundreds of ordinary citizens were arrested in protest. Most important of all? The public is not on board, with polls revealing that the majority of people, not just in BC but in Canada as a whole, don’t support the expansion plans.
In short, this project faces a powerful and diverse opposition who are saying ‘no’ to Kinder Morgan, and ‘yes’ to a clean energy future of liveable cities, stable jobs and healthy communities.
We can win this, if we all pull together and keep the pressure on.
- Take urgent action and ask the province of BC to investigate Kinder Morgan’s illegal construction.
- Pull Together to support First Nations’ legal challenges against Kinder Morgan. Fundraise online, organize events in your community, and help fill the legal war chest!
- Kinder Morgan is one proposal among a raft of other oil, coal and LNG projects proposed in BC and Washington that, if approved, could turn our region into one of the largest fossil fuel exporters in the world. Sign the pledge to work across the border with our US neighbors to stop the Salish Sea from becoming a carbon corridor.
