In a summer characterized by unprecedented wildfires, a record-breaking heatwave, and the 4th wave of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic, the government of Canada and Trans Mountain are attempting to go full steam ahead with building a tar sands pipeline in a climate emergency. People along the pipeline route from Alberta to Vancouver are standing up in defense of Indigenous rights and the planet.
Disregarding both public health and the health of the planet, signs of Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX) pipeline construction are showing up across the Lower Mainland. Trans Mountain is preparing to drive pipe under the Fraser River, through Burnaby Mountain, and through the neighborhoods of thousands of residents in Surrey, New Westminster, Coquitlam and Burnaby. On August 15, an order preventing Trans Mountain from cutting down more then 1300 trees and destroying a vital environmental corridor was lifted, meaning that tree cutting could begin any day.
During the federal election and beyond, now is the time to keep mobilizing community and build broad support to stop the drilling and stop the TMX pipeline once and for all!
