Federal Approval of Kinder Morgan Anniversary: Canvass in Vancouver

Sunday, November 26, 2017 at 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm | Free

Calling all Vancouver Dogwooders!

 

On Sunday, November 26, we will gather in front of Fairview MLA George Heyman’s constituency office to commemorate one year since the Federal Government approved Kinder Morgan’s pipeline and tanker expansion project.

 

Why this?

 

The B.C. government has the tools to stand up to Kinder Morgan — now, they need the political will.

 

We’ll take some powerful photos of our local teams ready to talk to people in his riding. Which is exactly what we are going to do next! George Heyman is the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy and has a mandate to use “all available tools” to stop Kinder Morgan. We’re ready to talk directly to his constituents about holding him to that promise.

 

Kinder Morgan is saying they can start construction by the end of the calendar year. One year after Justin Trudeau’s Kinder Morgan approval, this fight is getting down to the wire — and we need to help our B.C. government choose the right side of history.

 

We will meet at 1 pm for a briefing at MLA George Heyman’s constituency office (642 W Broadway), and then will split up. Volunteers will be divided between street canvassing and door-knocking. We’ll report back at 2:45 to debrief at Milano Coffee (156 W 8th Ave) and gather stories to tell about the conversations we had with constituents who expect the government to live up to its promise of using “every available tool”.

 

Come dressed for the weather and RSVP so we know what supplies to bring!
