Description

No Pipelines: Ben West, Carleen Thomas, Gabriel Saloman, and Stephen Collis Burnaby Residents Opposing the Kinder Morgan Pipeline Expansion (BROKE) and Unit-Pitt Gallery organized a People's Procession & Rally on Saturday, April 12th to raise community awareness and voice opposition to Kinder Morgan's plan to build a new pipeline to carry crude bitumen at extremely high pressure from the Alberta tar sands to Burrard Inlet. We are concerned about the many effects this could have: the disregard for First Nations rights, the erosion of democracy, the increase in oil tanker traffic, the increased size of the tank farm on Burnaby Mountain, the effect on health and safety in Burnaby and elsewhere, and the impact on our watersheds, air quality and climate change!
