Burnaby residents against the the Kinder Morgan pipeline hosted a town hall meeting reminding locals to share their concerns with the government’s pipeline panel.
The deadline for online submissions closes on September 30.
Spokeswoman for the Burnaby Residents Opposing Kinder Morgan Expansion, Ruth Walmsley, says it’s not too late to have your say.
“I think a lot of people feel that it’s a done deal, that there is nothing that we can do to stop the pipeline from going ahead but I think what’s really important for people to hear is that that’s not true and it’s not a done deal until it’s done and it’s not done and we are going to stop this thing.”
She adds she hopes protests will gain momentum in the coming months.
“There is a lot more pressure on the government to approve the Kinder Morgan Pipeline so I think we’re going to be seeing a lot more people probably out on the streets protesting and possibly more civil disobedience and that sort of thing.”
Walmsley says she thinks it will take more than just meetings, petitions and comments to stop the pipeline, though.
A federal decision on the expansion is expected to be reached in December.
