Kinder Morgan, We Still Say NO!
TD Bank – Totally Divest!

Downtown Vancouver

As Texas oil giant Kinder Morgan continues to try and bully its way towards pipeline construction, communities are stepping up their actions to ensure the destructive and unnecessary mega project is never built. 

Meanwhile TD Bank is the largest investor in the pipeline with $731 million committed. This same bank also claims, “Protecting and enhancing the environment is our commitment”. How does funding this dirty Tar Sands pipeline protect or enhance the environment?

Join us for a loud and dynamic action in front of the TD Bank in Vancouver. We need to keep up the momentum against the Kinder Morgan pipeline and hold TD Bank accountable for its major role in trying to enable this climate disaster!

This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.

The 6.8 billion dollar pipeline would “twin” an already existing pipeline to move heavy tar sands oil from Edmonton to Burnaby for export. This would triple the amount of oil being moved on the route to 890,000 barrels a day, while crossing approximately 900 watercourses between Edmonton and Burnaby. The pipeline would increase oil tanker traffic in the Burrard Inlet from 60 to more than 400 a year. It is opposed by the vast majority of indigenous nations whose traditional territories it would cross and millions more across BC and Canada.
