Sierra Club BC's Campaigns Director Caitlyn Vernon delivers an animated speech addressing the federal government's decision to buy the Kinder Morgan pipeline for $4.5 billion.
Against all logic, knowing the multitude of risks to investors and to the B.C. coast and economy, Prime Minister Trudeau has chosen to double down on this dangerous pipeline and the oil tankers that come with it.
Today’s decision is disappointing. The courts have let the province off the hook when it comes to respect for Indigenous rights. Kinder Morgan’s pipeline and oil tanker project still faces significant risks.
Sierra Club BC released this statement from conservation and climate campaigner Mark Worthing in response to the federal government’s announcement that it will indemnify Kinder Morgan against risks involved in building the Trans Mountain Pipeline
Leadnow, Sierra Club BC, SumOfUs.org and the Wilderness Committee will begin running radio ads Friday urging British Columbians to call their MPs to express their opposition to using public funds to bail out the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project.
In response to today's announcement by the BC government on its plan for encouraging the development of BC's LNG industry, Sierra Club BC’s senior forest and climate campaigner Jens Wieting warns that any new LNG development would spell disaster for the climate.
