Say NO to Kinder Morgan.
The National Energy Board has approved the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline with numerous conditions. “It was always likely to be approved. But we know this megaproject is not in the economic and social interests of our members” says Helesia Luke, CCEC Board Member. Vancouver Mayor Robertson says, “NEB pipeline process a 'sham,' new Liberal plan not much better.” Peter McCartney, Climate Campaigner with the Wilderness Committee says, “The NEB has ignored and wasted the time of countless communities, First Nations and individuals who have stood up to oppose this irresponsible pipeline proposal.”
McCartney continues by saying, “British Columbians have made it crystal clear this pipeline is not welcome in our communities. No new process is going to change the widespread Indigenous opposition, the unacceptable risk of a spill, the massive climate impacts or the shoddy economics of this project.”
You may recall that CCEC Credit Union was granted Intervenor status, the only financial institution to do so. We held a public forum in June 2014, over concern that the NEB process was not open, accessible and objective. We wanted to make the debate more public and complete. Read the blog.
We need everyone to turn out to the meetings in the coming months to show Ottawa and the rest of the country that when we say no – we mean it. We also need to turn the heat up on our MPs in the Lower Mainland. Write letters, call offices, show up at events. Our representatives must put a stop to this!
