LNG fantasy pipe dream bursts, Kinder Morgan is next!

Petronas LNG is dead in the water, just as Grand Chief Stewart Phillip predicted in May. [1]

After years of Liberal promises that a trillion dollar payday and 100,000 jobs were just around the corner, Petronas LNG just admitted that the prolonged low price of LNG (fracked methane gas) on the world markets means the destructive $36 billion project is market-dead and cannot proceed. [2][3]

The Lax Kw'alaams have been peacefully occupying a camp at Lax U'u'la (Lelu Island) in the traditional territory of Sm'ogyet Yahaan, to protect Flora Bank, a tall eelgrass environment that is the nursing grounds for wild salmon juveniles at the mouth of the Skeena River. Fully grown, the wild salmon return to the Skeena to feed the many First Nations and coastal communities. Let their fight be an example to inspire us all.

This cancellation intensifies our collective efforts to put the reckless Clark Liberal era behind us. Without a government prepared to trample on Indigenous Rights and ignore climate change these projects will not succeed.

Because Kinder Morgan is next!

The new provincial government has promised to use "every tool in the toolbox" to stop Kinder Morgan in the courts. But with Kinder Morgan threatening to begin pipeline construction sometime in September, we can't leave it all to them.

We're organizing training sessions for Coast Protectors to learn about your rights during a protest and train for peaceful direct action to stop Kinder Morgan. If you can, please donate now so we can offer this training to as many people as possible.

September is coming fast, and we need to be ready. 

The tide is turning and we need everyone. Please give now and stay tuned for dates for trainings and updates.
