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.
