On August 15 an order from Environment and Climate Change Canada prohibiting tree cutting in sensitive forest surrounding Holmes Creek expires. This ruling was triggered when activists proved Trans Mountain was brazenly breaking environmental regulations by cutting down trees containing hummingbird nests to clear a path for TMX pipeline construction. Trans Mountain has already destroyed a lot of sensitive and significant habitat – let’s not let them go any further!
There is every reason to believe Trans Mountain will attempt to ramp up tree cutting and construction activity for the pipeline expansion project when the order expires. Now is the time to mobilize community support to stop this dangerous activity once and for all.
Join in this action to alert the surrounding community about this imminent threat and let Trans Mountain know that their attempts to bully and bulldoze their way through our communities will be met with continued resistance. The planet can’t take it anymore, and neither will we!
Climate Convergence is also calling this action in support of Protect the Planet, Stop TMX! who have organized ongoing tree sits in this area for over one year to stop pipeline construction. Tours to the ongoing tree-sit will be available, and we encourage people to go and give their support to this important action!
This action will follow provincial Covid-19 regulations. Bring a mask. Bring your friends. Bring your signs.
This event is taking place on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples.
