The Kinder Morgan Pipeline, the Climate, and You!

We are in the final year of review of Kinder Morgan's proposed Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. The widely discredited NEB process will come to an end on May 20, when the NEB panel will make its recommendation to the Trudeau cabinet.

The government has announced that it will then engage in further consultations with Canadians regarding approval of Kinder Morgan's proposed expansion and the application of a climate test.

This event is hosted by the PIPE UP Network and allies to assist local residents to prepare for the upcoming federal reveiw.

First Nations, as the first stewards of the land, water and the air, have a vested interest in resource development and in climate change. This forum will consider... the First Nations perspective and will also examine the economic case for "getting our resources to tidewater." What are the effects on the climate and the what are the alternatives?

The event is being hosted at the Sumas First Nation reserve, and we acknowledge that this land is unceded territory.

Special Guests include:
* Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, UBCIC
* Carleen Thomas, Tsleil-Waututh Nation Sacred Trust Initiative
* Ben West from TankerFree BC
And more to be announced soon!

All are welcome to attend (including families); food and refreshments will be provided.
