Pipeline protest in North Burnaby Saturday

A protest against Kinder Morgan's proposed expansion of its Trans Mountain pipeline will take place in North Burnaby on Saturday, Aug. 27.

Starting at 2 p.m., the protesters, led by Vancouver-based environmental group Wilderness Committee, will march from Hastings Street (where it turns into Inlet Drive), the site of a 2007 oil pipeline rupture, down to the gates of Kinder Morgan's Westridge Terminal.

The protest will coincide with mass civil disobedience planned for Washington, DC to protest the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline.
