The Stoney Creek Environment Committee in cooperation with community and environmental groups is hosting a series of public forums to discuss Kinder Morgan’s plan to twin the Trans Mountain Pipeline, increase tanker traffic through the Georgia Straight and expand oil tank capacity on Burnaby Mountain.

The Kinder Morgan pipeline now ships 300,000 barrels of oil per day.  The planned expansion to 750,000 barrels per day will require that a new pipeline be built through Burnaby, oil tanker traffic dramatically increased through Georgia Straight and Burrard Inlet and expanded oil tank storage capacity on Burnaby Mountain.

Each element of Kinder Morgan’s planned expansion requires careful public consideration and debate. Experts have been invited to speak to increase information about the planned expansion and to provide an opportunity for public input.

Get the facts about these important matters and their impact on you and British Columbia at the following community forums:
