“Top 7 Reasons You Can’t Trust Kinder Morgan”, Pipelines
The federal government will begin its review of Kinder Morgan’s proposed $5.4 billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project soon after receiving the National Energy Board’s final recommendation report, due to be released on May 20. An approval would increase the flow of Alberta tar sands oil through the Trans Mountain pipeline from the current 300,000 barrels a day to 890,000.
A new report outlines the following “Top 7 Reasons You Can’t Trust Kinder Morgan”:
On Saturday, May 14th, climate activists are planning to encircle Kinder Morgan’s Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby, BC. According to canada.breakfree.org:
On May 14th, we’ll encircle the Kinder Morgan facility on the ground and on the water.
On the water, we’ll create a mass flotilla of kayaks and canoes.We’ll cross the Burrard Inlet to swarm the tanker terminal for the Kinder Morgan facility, which could see over 400 tankers a year putting the coast at risk if the project is approved.
WHEN: 10:00 AM on Saturday, May 14th
WHERE: We’ll meet at Cates Park in North Vancouver and paddle over together to the Marine West terminal at the Kinder Morgan facility.
The actions, which are being coordinated by Greenpeace and 350.org, are part of the “Break Free” global call against fossil fuel projects.
Over the weekend, thousands of activists are expected to hit the streets of major cities across the world to demand a break from fossil fuels, and an immediate LEAP towards renewable energy.
