Enbridge isnt the only pipeline company in town. The US energy company Kinder Morgan plans to build a new pipeline to Burnaby, bring over 400 tankers a year carrying dirty oil past Victoria, and put the BC coast at risk of oil spills. Its up to us to stop them.
Please join us for an evening of conversation on pipelines, tankers and climate change. Speakers will include Caitlyn Vernon (Coastal Campaigner and author of Nowhere Else on Earth); Ben West of ForestEthics Advocacy, Chief Andy Thomas of the Esquimalt First Nation, and Mayor Dean Fortin of Victoria.
Also joining us, via video, will be Bill McKibben, one of the worlds foremost climate change activists and co-founder of 350.org. And we will be showing, for the first time, a brand-new video focused on pipelines and climate change, featuring musician C.R. Avery.
This is sure to be an inspiring event. Its free, and it begins at 7pm on Thursday, Apr. 11th at the Vic Theatre in downtown Victoria (808 Douglas St.).
Please RSVP on Facebook and invite your friends, or check out the event page on our website. Kinder Morgans pipeline is a threat to BCs coast and the planet, and we must make our message clear: No Pipelines, No Tankers, No Problem!
