Pull Together to Stop Kinder Morgan
Kinder Morgan’s pipeline and tanker project poses unacceptable risks to our oceans and waterways, our climate, economies and communities. It must never be built. Four First Nations have vowed to stop it in the courts, so people, businesses and community groups are raising funds to support them. Half of the proceeds of this event will be used in support of the Cold Water, Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish and Secwepemc First Nations’ legal challenges opposing the proposed Kinder Morgan expansion. For more information on the campaign, see: https://pull-together.ca/

Protect Skeena Salmon from Petronas
The other half of the proceeds will go toward a legal challenge to the proposed gas pipeline and LNG terminal right on top of the salmon nursery around Lelu Island. The proposed LNG terminal may prove catastrophic for the wild salmon population of the entire Skeena Watershed, on which 10 First Nations and a total of 60,000 people depend for their lives and livelihoods. Stand with the Gitanyow, Gitxsan and Gitwilgyoots Hereditary Chiefs and support their court battle for the survival of the Skeena watershed as we know it.
