2014 brought months of protests and direct action against the Kinder Morgan Transmountain pipeline when the company decided to attempt to do borehole test drilling on Burnaby Mountain. Well its a new year, and with it comes yey another people vs the pipeline confrontation for Kinder Morgan!
For the last 3 days, concerned community members have been protesting Kinder Morgan contractors who are attempting yet again to do borehole pipeline-test drilling for their dirty tar sands pipeline - this time in the Coquitlam and New Westminster area. The protestors were successful in blocking traffic and also turning away a water truck needed for the drilling, and have been directly confronting the Kinder Morgan contractors and keeping watch on the site - a fenced area near the south ramp of teh Brunette Highway Interchange. The site where the test drilling is taking place is a few dozen meters from the Coho Salmon bearing Brunette River.
