The Council of Canadians protesting the Kinder Morgan project at the Burnaby export terminal, May 2016.
Premier Notley is joining Natural Resource Minister Jim Carr and Ian Anderson, CEO of Kinder Morgan Canada, in Vancouver today to promote the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
The talk aimed at Vancouver's business community is being rightfully targeted by a local rally.
The Facebook event states, "Kinder Morgan does not have consent from the majority of the nations whose territories the pipeline aims to cross. KM has already violated its environmental conditions by polluting rivers with plastic and interfering with salmon."
The Albertan and federal commitment to phase out coal-fired power (not coal mining
) will undoubtedly again
be a key talking point in justifying support for the highly contentious pipeline project aiming to ship 890,000 barrels of tar sands crude from Alberta to BC, and export markets through the Salish Sea.
Here’s the thing.
The climate pollution stopped from phasing out coal-fired power in Ontario and Alberta is exceeded by the climate pollution that could be generated by the Kinder Morgan and Line 3 tar sands pipelines if they are built.
