On the scene where Coastal GasLink’s plan to install pipe under the river bed has been halted for 11 days.

At the turnoff, four workers with Coastal GasLink security gather in orange and yellow vests, their voices edged with frustration as they talk above four idling pickup trucks that release a haze of exhaust into the early morning light.

Another pickup faces off against the group, blocking access to the rough and muddy spur road that leads to the pipeline worksite.

New Westminster is the latest community to oppose the proposed expansion of the Tilbury liquefied natural gas plant in Delta.

At Monday’s meeting, representatives from the Council of Canadians and the Wilderness Committee urged New West to follow the lead of Vancouver, Richmond and Port Moody, which have voiced their opposition to FortisBC’s plan to expand its Tilbury LNG plant on the Fraser River.

For Gordon Murray, the loss of his home during this summer’s wildfire in Lytton shows the British Columbia government isn’t doing enough to curb the climate crisis.

“I still taste smoke from the firestorm that erased our house and 90 per cent of Lytton as we fled that unexpected and unstoppable manifestation of the human-caused climate emergency,” said Murray.

“This is a huge victory. Today, water, the environment, and people spoke louder than fossil fuels.”

The PennEast Pipeline Company has just stopped pursuing a proposed gas pipeline project for a Pennsylvania-New Jersey natural gas line.
