The People Versus TransMountain
Time & Location
About the Event
The TransMountain pipeline and tanker expansion project (TMX) would triple the volume of the existing TransMountain pipeline, carrying more tar sands oil from Alberta than any other proposed tar sands pipeline. This crude oil would then be exported from B.C., causing an unacceptable increase in the number of oil tankers in Washington and B.C.’s shared waters, and endangering life in and around the Salish Sea with the threat of a catastrophic oil spill. Please support First Nations in their ongoing legal battle against the TransMountain Pipeline and Tanker Expansion project
Thursday, April 30, 6:30 - 8:30 PM through Zoom
Attendees will be invited to take action in support of the fight against TMX. If possible, please have a computer and phone available for use during this webinar.

Stand Up To Oil remains in solidarity with the Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, and Coldwater Nations, who have been leading in the fight against TMX and are continuing their legal challenges to stop the TMX expansion project. On April 6, First Nations filed applications with the Canadian Supreme Court to appeal federal approval of the project. Watch the webinar on the First Nations' appeal here.
The health and safety of many First Nations are also endangered by exposure to man camps and the continued construction of the pipeline, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Please donate to support First Nations' legal fees in the fight against TMX at https://tinyurl.com/y9m46d7x
In addition to supporting First Nations' legal fights, TMX insurance certificates will be filed on April 30, and we will take action together against insurers and financial backers of this toxic and colonial project.
