Does Kinder Morgan fit your
vision for BC's coast?

The Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project poses incredible
risks to the coast and world we love, including:


Spills that can't be cleaned up

400

tankers a year of diluted bitumen that sinks. Simon Fraser University researchers predict 79% chance of a spill that would permanently damage coastal communities and wildlife, including resident orca and salmon populations.


skull-iconPoisonous, cancerous nerve damaging toxins.

Potential spill damage on BC coast

7x

More tanker traffic




Driving South Coast Orcas to extinction

80

Threatened Resident Orcas won’t be able to hunt with 7X more tankers. Even the company and the NEB admit no mitigation is possible.
