NO KINDER MORGAN PIPELINE! STOP SITE C DAM! CLIMATE JUSTICE NOW!

Monthly IntersACTION

SATURDAY, JUNE 17
2pm
Georgia and Burrard

Despite the growing opposition of millions in BC and across Canada, Kinder Morgan, BC Hydro, current BC Premier Christy Clark and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau are all still trying to ram unpopular mega projects which destroy the environment down our throats.

Kinder Morgan's mediocre stock price, Christy Clark's current Site C maneuverings and the result of the recent BC election are all indications that these projects, and the politicians and corporations who support them, are becoming increasingly unpopular. Kinder Morgan is racing to get its dirty oil sands pipeline built, while BC Hydro is trying to do the same with the wasteful and unnecessary Site C Dam.

Now is more important than ever to stand up for the people and the planet!

We need to send a strong message that we will continue to be active in building a movement to deafeat these projects, protect our communities and build the better world we all know is possible.

Please join us to continue this important work! Bring your friends, family, signs, voices and your determination.

>>> What is an IntersAction?
It's an action where we flood an intersection on all sides with people crossing (on the light) with signs and banners without stopping the flow of traffic. This way we can be seen by and engage with the most people.

MORE INFO ON KINDER MORGAN PIPELINE:
The 6.8 billion dollar pipeline would “twin” an already existing pipeline to move heavy tar sands oil from Edmonton to Burnaby for export. This would triple the amount of oil being moved on the route to 890,000 barrels a day, while crossing approximately 900 watercourses between Edmonton and Burnaby. The pipeline would increase oil tanker traffic in the Burrard Inlet from 60 to more than 400 a year. It is opposed by the vast majority of indigenous nations whose traditional territories it would cross and millions more accross BC and Canada.

MORE INFO ON SITE C DAM:
Site C violates First Nations Treaty Rights, will flood more than 9550 hectares of land, including enough farmland to feed 1 million people, puts the beautiful Peace Valley at risk, requires evicting farmers and landowners who have lived in the area for generations, will cost British Columbians at least $8.8 billion, will lead to our Hydro rates going up, and isn't needed!
