I am willing to stand up to Kinder Morgan and be arrested for the future of my grandchildren
On Thursday November 27 at 10 am on the top of the hill, Grand Chief Stewart Phillip will be joining the people at Burnaby Mountain.
This is at the exact same time that Kinder Morgan will be appearing in Supreme Court to try to increase the injunction zone and extend the timeline on the injunction to complete their geotechnical survey work. Kinder Morgan has said that project delays due to opposition cost the company $88 million every month.
Over 70% of Burnaby residents are opposed to Kinder Morgan’s $5.4 billion expansion proposal that would transport even more diluted bitumen and bring even more tankers to the Burrard Inlet. The City of Burnaby is appealing a National Energy Board decision that grants Kinder Morgan access to the designated Conservation Area.
The Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, and Musqueam have also expressed opposition to Kinder Morgan, North America’s third largest energy corporation. The Tsleil-Waututh have launched a legal challenge, citing the federal government’s failure to consult Tsleil-Waututh on key decisions about the environmental assessment and regulatory review of Kinder Morgan’s project.
What: Press Conference at Burnaby Mountain
When: Thursday November 27th at 10 am
Where: On top of Burnaby Mountain, the hill beside the injunction area.
Who: Grand Chief Stewart Phillip. He will be joined by other Indigenous leaders
I cannot NOT go back!
I was raised with David Suzuki and feel as strongly as he does about protecting nature NOW for future as I do protecting my own daughter.
see and hear his video:
I took this next photo.
I was on the mountain and now I am drawn strongly to go back till this is done. We stop Kinder Morgan. I am responsible and since I can act, I just must. We all do what we can and, I am privileged to be able to go.
I have accepted support for ferry cost’s to go where my heart leads, we all have a place in production, mine is on mountain. Long as I can walk, I will be there. I leave on a bus to ferry at 0700 Friday and go to a Policing Poverty day long series, then off to a friends for a sleep over and visit then, on Saturday I will go to Mountain.
Folks are gathering Saturday with music, many are arriving Sunday as well, these two photo’s are the mom and daughter who got arrested!
I will report from Mountain and decide if and when I will get arrested.
I am posting this notice with requests for support that will help in this endeavour. Someone has already offered to pay for myself and one other to come with me re: ferry and busses. I am seeking funding for a second battery for my camera and one more memory disc, not big cost’s.
I hope to find a bed nearby #BurnabyMountain off of 135 bus route. I cannot walk far without pain so, praying for this one. Icing on the cake would be someone felt moved to come and pick me up at night and drop me off in am; they live nearby so it was not out of their way! [I can even keep it a secret as to not get them into trouble.]
I will be low maintenance, as I just want a place to sleep, and post to my computer at night when I arrive.
I’ll figure out my own food, healthy snacking basically, high protein snacks, dried meats etc.
Here are two video’s to give perspective as to why I go, besides being with action for global change in a non violent civil disobedience way, which is my right I must exercise.

FERGUSON, Mo. – Chaos returned to the streets of Ferguson after a grand jury declined to indict a white police officer in the death of Michael Brown – a decision that enraged protesters who set fire to buildings and cars and looted businesses in the area where the unarmed, black 18-year-old was fatally shot.
Smoke billowed from some businesses Tuesday morning and shattered glass covered the sidewalks in front of others, but the streets in Ferguson were mostly clear.
Monday night’s destruction appeared to be much worse than protests after August’s shootings, with more than a dozen businesses badly damaged or destroyed. Authorities reported hearing hundreds of gunshots, which for a time prevented fire crews from fighting the flames.
There were 61 arrests in Ferguson overnight, many for burglary and trespassing, St. Louis County Police spokesman Brian Schellman said. There were 21 arrests in St. Louis, where protesters broke some store windows along South Grand Avenue, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said.
Jon Belmar, chief of the St. Louis County police, said that unless his agency could bring in 10,000 officers, “I don’t think we can prevent folks who really are intent on destroying a community.”
The grand jury’s decision means that Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, will not face any state criminal charges for killing Brown, whose death inflamed deep racial tensions between many black Americans and police.
Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said the jury of nine whites and three blacks met on 25 separate days over three months, hearing more than 70 hours of testimony from about 60 witnesses, including three medical examiners and experts on blood, toxicology and firearms.
