Elected leaders in the Salish Sea must continue to resist Kinder Morgan’s dangerous oil pipeline and tanker proposal.
British Columbia Premier John Horgan has vowed to stop Kinder Morgan, but he faces increasing pressure from the Canadian federal government and Prime Minister Trudeau. Premier Horgan’s staunch position supports the First Nations’ opposition and represents the many B.C. residents who vehemently oppose the new pipeline.
Thankfully, Governor Inslee has supported Premier Horgan’s position. With Kinder Morgan’s decision expected on May 31 on the future of the project, now is a critical time for him to stand up and send a clear message to protect the Salish Sea.
Send a message to Governor Inslee to tell him that Washington is united against dirty tar sands oil and the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline!
Washingtonians would be directly impacted by this project, as all oil tanker traffic from the facility must travel through our shared Salish Sea waters.
This project puts our intertwined marine communities, the rights and survival of tribal nations, and our placed-based economies at an elevated risk, along with the direct threat of ecological destruction and loss of our salmon and orca populations.
Please ask our Governor to lead with Premier Horgan, and voice his opposition loud and clear. Let’s ask him to honor U.S. Tribal Treaties and First Nations’ sovereignty and to represent Washingtonian’s opposition to this project.
