Canada May Approve an Oil Pipeline That Threatens the World’s Most Endangered Killer Whales | Trudeau please say NO!

On Saturday, activists will take to the streets of Vancouver, British Columbia, to urge Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to reject the Trans-Mountain expansion, a $5 billion, 620-mile pipeline that would carry oil from the Alberta tar sands to the British Columbia coast for export to foreign markets.

Trudeau’s cabinet has until Dec. 19 to make a final decision on whether to approve Trans-Mountain, which is a project of the Houston, Texas–based energy infrastructure company Kinder Morgan. It would nearly triple the amount of diluted bitumen (a petroleum extract) transported to the Westbridge Terminal in Burnaby, east of Vancouver, from 300,000 to 890,000 barrels per day, creating a nearly sixfold increase in tanker traffic to more than 420 ships per year.

Saying no to things like this is part of the reason Trudeau was elected…. let’s hope he stands fast.

Thanks!
