The meeting is Wednesday, March 18 and will feature Eoin Madden of the Wilderness Committee and Sven Biggs of ForestEthics Advocacy as speakers.

The pipeline expansion, which goes through Kamloops, would transport 890,000 barrels of oil products from the Alberta tar sands to a marine terminal in Burnaby. The project is in the midst of an environmental review led by the National Energy Board (NEB), with hearings set to begin this fall.

The meeting will be held in TRU’s Clocktower Theatre from 7 to 10 p.m.

    As this writer has mentioned before, one can appreciate the efforts put forward by environmentalists and First Nations directed against oil pipe lines, one would imagine that their feeling is the same about LNG. Does their opposition to pipelines suggest that they feel that railways and the movement of oil by oil tanker is much safer?
