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.
