Prime Minister Trudeau’s decision on Kinder Morgan is fast approaching. Now more than ever we need a show of force to show that – no matter his choice – this region will do whatever it takes to stop this pipeline.

TAKE THE PLEDGE
We’re launching a “Take the Pledge” campaign to prepare for escalating actions in the event Trudeau’s cabinet approves the Kinder Morgan pipeline at the end of December. People will be able to sign a pledge of resistance and commit to supporting whatever action is necessary to stop the pipeline. On November 19th we will conduct a mass public pledge to demonstrate to cabinet the scale of opposition they are facing if they attempt to move forward with Kinder Morgan. If Trudeau wants Clayoquot Sound 2.0 in the middle of Metro Vancouver – he’ll get it.
This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
More details coming soon…
