emission reduction pledges his government made at the UN Climate
Conference in Paris. He has decided that the National Energy Board
pipeline reviews already in progress would continue to conclusion, no
matter how incomplete and biased toward Big Oil they are.
Allow Climate, First Nations, Community Concerns
Re-Do Kinder Morgan Review
Calling all veterans of the Battle of Burnaby Mountain and all
others opposing Kinder Morgan’s plans to
 massively contribute to world-wrecking climate change,
 continue its lack of meaningful consultation with First Nations,
 triple the capacity of its export tar sands pipeline through Burnaby,
 more than double the capacity at its Burnaby Mountain tank farm,
 multiply by 5-7 times its oil supertanker traffic in Burrard Inlet.
Our next skirmish is around the January 19-29 National Energy
Board (NEB) hearings on the KM expansion project, which candidate
Justin Trudeau promised would not happen
Elected Prime Minister Trudeau has betrayed that promise and the
FIRST DAY MARCH & RALLY – Noon, Tues. Jan. 19,
Gilmore SkyTrain Station (parking lot kitty-corner at Home Depot).
Gather at Jim Lorimer Park on east side of Gilmore, half-block south
of Dawson for one-kilometre march, or join us at the hotel at 1 p.m.
ALL OUT RALLY – 1 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 23, Burnaby
Delta Hotel, 4331 Dominion Street—a block from the intersection of
Willingdon Ave. and the Highway (more details in italics on reverse)
Since the election many individuals, groups, and first nations leaders
have urged Trudeau to keep his promise to re-start the NEB reviews of
both the Kinder Morgan and Energy East tar sands export pipelines.
New rules should allow thorough, unbiased, and what candidate
Trudeau called ―credible‖ reviews.
But fairness is no longer the plan. So, we need to remind Trudeau, the
pipeline/fossil fuel companies, the people of BC and Canada, and the
whole world of the prime minister’s own words: ―Even though
governments grant permits, only communities grant permission.‖
The people of Burnaby and the Tsleil-Waututh Nation have already
denied permission, as have other area First Nations and municipalities.
Allied groups and individuals, meeting since December, are calling the
above protests (see box on page 1).
Other allies across Canada, including opponents of the Energy East
and Line 9 pipelines, are discussing how to support BC actions in
ways that would amplify our opposition to the broken promises.
The Burnaby Delta Hotel is easy to reach by public transit. Dominion
Street dead-ends (with pedestrian access) on the west side of
Willingdon, a block north of Canada Way. You can get within a couple
of blocks of the hotel on buses from Brentwood, Gilmore, Joyce,
Patterson, and Metrotown SkyTrain stations.
