Tsleil-Waututh Nation Media Advisory
The Tsleil-Waututh Nation is encouraging the public to attend information sessions on the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion in hopes that most of those who attend will be critics of the project.
But Tsleil-Waututh members say they will keep their distance while the information sessions are under way. The Tsleil-Waututh has decided to keep its distance because it expects to be consulted by the federal government on the $4.1-billion project.
It deems itself a sovereign government with constitutionally protected rights and title. Participating with Kinder Morgan in anything that would be deemed as consultation with respect to the pipeline would be counter to that position, it says.
We, as a nation, expect to have a meaningful consultation government to government, said Carleen Thomas, an elected council member of the Tsleil-Waututh.
We are clear that the government cannot delegate this obligation to consult to third parties such as Kinder Morgan.
Burnaby Residents Opposed to KinderMorgan Expansion
BROKE urges the public to not Sign in at Kinder Morgan “information” sessions and to not fill out the Kinder Morgan consultation forms. These sessions are not public consultations or part of the government process.
After attending an info session Len Laycock said he found the public hearing to be more like a sales centre for condos. Except in this case they are trying to sell you a toxic pipeline.
