Just the beginning': anti-pipeline protesters vow 'rise of resistance'

Activists opposed to Kinder Morgan's pipeline expansion to run training sessions for protesters

People who were arrested at a protest against energy giant Kinder Morgan are saying what happened this weekend is just the beginning of mass civil disobedience.

On Saturday, protesters gathered both on the water and on land near Kinder Morgan's Westbridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby, B.C., to voice their opposition to the planned expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline. 

  • 5 arrested for mischief following Kinder Morgan protest

More than 60 boats linked together in front of the tanker route that connects with the terminal. 

Police arrested five of the protesters. They have now been charged with criminal mischief.

On Monday, four of the five held a news conference in Vancouver, vowing to ramp up their efforts. 

Protester Liam Fox says he believes it is his duty to stand in the way of the construction of the Kinder Morgan pipeline. 

"We don't really have any other option. This pipeline has to be stopped," Fox said.

Heiltsuk First Nation to sue Kirby Corporation over 2016 diesel spill PDF Print E-mail

As reported in Coast Mountain News, this month marks the one-year anniversary of the October 13 oil spill in Bella Bella, British Columbia. With the community’s recovery efforts undermined by government and Kirby Corporation’s refusal to take responsibility for the spill and to cooperate in its aftermath, the nation says it has no option but to turn to the courts.

“The oil spill continues to be a catastrophic injury to our food sources, culture, and economy,” says Heiltsuk Tribal Council Chief Councillor, Marilyn Slett. “Thanks to Kirby Corporation and the governments of British Columbia and Canada, our community’s road to recovery keeps getting longer and longer.”

Kirby Corporation and government have kept information secret about what occurred on October 13, 2016 when the Nathan E. Stewart grounded, sank and spilled oil into Gale Pass. The Heiltsuk Tribal Council made numerous separate requests for information to the polluter (Kirby Corporation) and various government agencies, including Transport Canada, the Transportation Safety Board, and the Canadian Coast Guard. Those requests were largely denied or ignored.

The Nation claims this secrecy and lack of collaboration has continued throughout the post-spill recovery.
