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).

Report finds Kinder Morgan proposal violates First Nation legal principles

On May 26, the Sacred Trust, acting on behalf of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, released an 89-page Independent Assessment Report, about the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline. The comprehensive report, which incorporated the findings of six expert reports, conclusively opposes the pipeline proposal.

The proposal includes two pipelines and an expansion of the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. Kinder Morgan seeks to transport 890,000 barrels a day, in the two proposed pipelines between Edmonton and Burnaby. The terminal expansion would include an increase of traffic from 60 to 408 tankers per year.
