Council of Canadians available for comment on Kinder Morgan pipeline announcement

The Council of Canadians responds to the news that Kinder Morgan is proceeding with a proposal to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline to transport 500,000 barrels of oil per day.

"Houston-based Kinder Morgan is out of touch with local opposition to the pipeline expansion," says Harjap Grewal, BC Regional Organizer with the Council of Canadians.

"People are opposed to an increase in Burrard Inlet oil tanker traffic, the potential for a pipeline spill and further unsustainable expansion in the tar sands," adds Andrea Harden-Donahue, Energy and Climate Justice Campaigner with the Council of Canadians.    

This past summer, in solidarity with Washington DC based actions against the Keystone XL pipeline, the Council of Canadians helped to mobilize hundreds against the threat of an expanded Trans Mountain pipeline. The Council of Canadians is committed to working with its members and supporters in BC to oppose the proposed expansion.
