This week, Coastal First Nations are launching a month-long campaign against moving crude oil in freighters down the B.C. coast.
A protest rally took place in downtown Vancouver today in response to the federal government’s attempts to woo First Nations support for the controversial project.
“We do not accept the Kinder Morgan proposal to expand,” says Amanda Nahanee with Squamish Nis’ka Nations. “We do not accept the expansion of the tar sands in Alberta. We know that the First Nations there are suffering from several types of rare cancer.”
Also beginning today is the airing of an anti-pipeline and tanker ad by Coastal First Nations.
