As the end of 2017 approaches, the fight against the Kinder Morgan pipeline continues. One of the major focus points has become their Westridge Marine Terminal on the edge of Burnaby Mountain. The oil giant has recently begun construction there to triple oil tanker loading capacity. Camp Cloud has been established to protest and monitor activity from the land, while “kayaktivists” do the same from the sea. The “Justin Trudeau Brigades” have also peacefully blocked construction traffic into the site on several occasions. 

Meanwhile TD Bank has continued to be the largest investor in the dirty tar sands pipeline, with $731 committed despite promising that, “Protecting and enhancing the environment is our commitment”. The Divestment movement which has had so much success in the U.S. is gaining momentum across Canada as well. 

We have big plans to stop this pipeline in 2018, so we're starting with a big and diverse action! We will rally at the TD Bank, march across the pedestrian bridge over Hastings, and hang giant banners on our way to the gates of the nearby Kinder Morgan Westridge Marine Terminal. We will have chants, speeches and resistance songs from the Solidarity Notes Choir. 

Let's show both Kinder Mogan and TD Bank that we will not back down! Please spread the word and join us!

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.
