Let's Save Our Coast... Again.

Town Hall to discuss the Trans Mountain Pipeline with MP Nathan Cullen

Friday October 12th, 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Heritage Hall, Island Savings Centre
2687 James Street
Duncan , British Columbia V9L2X5

Please join me and MP Nathan Cullen to discuss the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. A recent unanimous federal Court of Appeal ruling recently halted construction on the Trans-Mountain pipeline expansion, citing serious concerns with the environmental impact of the project on the coast and a lack of meaningful consultation with affected Indigenous groups. However, the Liberal government has already signaled that they mean to press ahead with the expansion, having just finalized the $4.5 billion purchase of the existing pipeline from Kinder Morgan.

The prospect of the Liberal government spending over $10 billion of tax payers’ money to build a pipeline is deeply troubling. A seven-fold increase in tanker traffic that would result from the expansion will not only increase the risk of an oil spill, which would be devastating for our precious coastline, but will pose a direct threat to the survival of the critically-endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale.

Join us to help unite opposition to this misguided expansion and ensure that the Liberal government does not waste even more public money by challenging the court ruling that halted the construction. We want to make it clear that being truly committed to fighting climate change and reaching reconciliation with Indigenous peoples is not achieved by spending billions on a pipeline.
