Protest group Burnaby Residents Opposed to Kinder Morgan Expansion hosted a meeting Wednesday to encourage locals to speak out against the project.
The deadline for online submissions closes on Sept. 30.
91-year-old activist Elsie Dean says the government’s decision on the Pacific NorthWest LNG this week has encouraged her even more to speak out.
“They are going in the opposite direction, their decisions are going to put us into a fossil fuel economy for the next 50 years so the people have to take hold here. The government don’t seem to know what they’re doing. They’re getting very bad advice.”
Dean says the time may be almost up for public input, but their work won’t stop there.
“There’s a lot of people who still are unaware of the implications of going into a fossil fuel economy, nobody seems to be in control of this Kinder Morgan company so we’ll be keeping going.”
A federal decision on the expansion is expected to be reached in December.
