Protesting Kinder Morgan's pipleline plan
It appears that Justin Trudeau is poised to announce approval of this pipeline even though he campaigned and was elected on a promise to listen to communities before approving these kinds of things.
He needs to listen to British Columbia, where more than 65 per cent of the population is against pipelines and oil tankers. Trudeau signed the Paris Accord and this pipeline will just increase our emissions from the expanding tar sands.
Sorry it's such a blurry photo but it gives an idea of the gathering. You can't read the signs but I'll repeat a few of them here:
No to Fossil Fuels
No tar sands, no pipelines, trains, tankers
Climate Leaders Don't Build Pipelines
Our coast, our call
There are No Jobs on a Dead Planet
Sorry Alberta, our world takes precedence
If you want to send a note to our prime minister to tell him your thoughts on the pipeline project you can do so by emailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org
