According to the CBC, burgers and hot dogs weren't the only things sizzling at a Yellowknife barbecue with Northwest Territories MP Michael McLeod last week.
Chapter president Lois Little attended her MP’s barbecue to share the chapter’s views of the federal government’s plan to purchase Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline.
The day before, the chapter, along with 350.org, sent an email encouraging people to attend the barbecue, but to not have lunch with Mr. McLeod in protest of the Liberal government's plans to purchase the pipeline with public money – at a cost that is expected to soar as high as $20 billion.
"Don't be bought with a burger," the email read. "Bring a lunch and tell your MP you want real political choice, meaningful consultation and a stop to Kinder Morgan."
The chapter also handed out copies of their open letter to their MP at the event.
