On July 6, 2015 the PIPE UP Network, the Kwantlen Public Interest Research Group, and the Kwantlen Student Association hosted a public forum regarding a recently signed memorandum of understanding between Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Trans Mountain Pipelines.
The day started in the court yard, with a Popsicles not Pipelines theme, with free popsicles and information tables.
Everyone packed into the conference room to hear from a panel which included Alan Davis the president of KPU, Allison Gonzalez president of the KSA, Justin Bige Aboriginal rep for the KSA and reading a letter on behalf of the Kwantlen First Nation, Richard Hosein of KPIRG, and Justine Nelson KPU Alumna and Chapter Coordinator for the PIPE UP Network.
After the speakers the floor opened to the audience to ask questions, there were a lot of great questions and more questions than we had time. Speakers included KPU professors, students, and community members.
