Pipeline Meeting Wednesday
Submitted. The Wilderness Committee is teaming up with Tanker Free BC and the PIPE UP Network to host a town hall meeting in Abbotsford on Wednesday, August 15, as part of an effort to foster local engagement and rally residents across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley in opposition to Kinder Morgan’s proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.
Despite the known risks, Texas-based Kinder Morgan has silently been transporting tar sands bitumen through their existing Trans Mountain pipeline. Now, with little consultation with residents along the route, the company has announced plans to build a new pipeline alongside the existing one. Expansion would mean digging up lands, damming rivers and disturbing major community infrastructure. It would also double the risk of a tar sands spill and increase the number of supertankers coming in and out of Vancouver, putting ecosystems and local businesses at risk while entrenching a tar sands-dependent export economy.
Since the Kinder Morgan pipeline right-of-way crosses through Abbotsford, it is crucial that community members are given the opportunity to join the discussion. This meeting is a chance for local residents to learn more about the proposal, address their concerns and connect with other groups and citizens participating in the debate.
