While much of the attention is on the Northern Gateway Project, there is another plan that is facing opposition.

Kinder Morgan wants to twin an existing pipeline to ship bitumen from Edmonton to Burnaby, B.C.

The Tslei Wau Tuth Nation and the Squamish First Nation organized an event this past weekend to send Kinder Morgan a message. The communities say they will not allow the company to bring in bitumen because it threatens their waterways.
