MEDIA ADVISORYNovember 18, 2016

WHAT: March and Rally. #StopKM #NoTankers


WHY: The proposed Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion will seriously impact the Title and Rights of First Nations communities; will have a lasting and damaging impact on the environment and communities it passes through; will increase tanker traffic and the risk of a major environmental disaster to BC’s coasts; and will increase Canada’s contributions to climate change at a most critical time when any expansion of the tar sands is entirely unacceptable. Canada’s final decision on the KM TMX project is imminent.

On November 19th, thousands will gather at the Vancouver City Hall and at 12PM will march to Library Square to call upon Prime Minster Trudeau to reject the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.
