Rueben George, Ben West Talk Kinder Morgan, Vancouver Tankers
by Damien Gillis l The Canadian.org
Rueben George of the Tsleil-Waututh (Burrard) First Nation and Ben West of the Wilderness Committee discuss Kinder Morgan's quiet plan to twin its existing Trans Mountain Pipeline from the Alberta Tar Sands to Vancouver - which would result in up to 300 supertankers a year plying the waters of the Burrard Inlet and South Coast.
Both were speakers at the recent No Tankers rally in downtown Vancouver, which drew close to 2,000 First Nations and concerned citizens.
