Who do these Texas cowboys think they are?

Here in BC, we have rules — and when Kinder Morgan installed snow fencing in seven BC streams to prevent salmon from spawning this fall, they stomped on them.

When federal police were called to arrest people protesting the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project in Burnaby on Saturday, two conflicting and equally powerful emotions came over veteran environmentalist Karen Mahon.

Pipeline protests escalated in B.C. on Saturday as First Nations and environmental activists paddled into Vancouver harbour in an attempt to disrupt construction at Kinder Morgan's pipeline terminal.

Sheriffs turned up at the downtown Vancouver offices of an environment group on Tuesday to seek about $14,000 in unpaid court costs on behalf of energy giant Enbridge Inc., but within hours, the company backed off.

Other environmental groups rallied around Stand.earth, formerly known as ForestEthics, on Tuesday with statements on social media and phone calls offering help. Enbridge did not explain the swift turnaround.
