Small community, big resistance: Chilliwack fights Kinder Morgan

Photo: Ian Stephen

Chilliwack may be a small B.C. community, but it has a big problem with Kinder Morgan's proposed Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion.

The existing Kinder Morgan pipeline, operating since 1953, currently carries 300,000 barrels per day through Chilliwack's drinking water and various water bodies, which are the home of culturally significant fish. Kinder Morgan wants to revive mothballed portions of the existing Trans Mountain pipeline, as well as build a new twin pipeline, increasing the capacity of the system to 890,000 barrels per day. The proposal is currently being reviewed by the National Energy Board (NEB).

Good jobs and better climate hinge on public transit decisions

Even if there is a Yes vote in the Metro Vancouver transit referendum much more will have to be done to reduce carbon pollution from transportation. The good news is that this will create good jobs right here in B.C.

Road transportation in Metro Vancouver is responsible for more than five million tons of greenhouse gas pollution, more than half of the region's total. Global warming and ocean acidification are both caused by burning too much oil and other fossil fuels.
