Hey Trudeau! Kinder Morgan Has Got to Go!

April 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

After nearly 200 arrests on Burnaby Mountain of people taking bold action to stop Kinder Morgan, this Thursday, Justin Trudeau is scheduled to be in Vancouver raising money for his own re-election campaign. That’s right Trudeau is fundraising at the same time he’s trying to shove an unwanted pipeline through Vancouver, Burnaby and all of BC.

Not on our watch. On Thursday April 5th, let’s show the Prime Minister that he is not welcome on unceded Coast Salish territories — not while he is ramming a reckless tar sands pipeline through without Indigenous consent.

**Here’s the plan**
5:30 – Gather at the Vancouver Art Gallery
5:45 – March to the fundraiser at the Sheraton Wall Centre 1088 Burrard St.
6:00 – 7:30 Arrive at the fundraiser as donors and attendees arrive to make noise and make sure Trudeau knows how much supporting KM will cost him.

***In order order to make this as loud as possible, we need everyone to bring two items from home – a pot or pan and a wooden spoon. It’s a tactic that Quebec students and community members used in 2012 to make a whole lot of noise, and we think that Trudeau needs his ears to ring with our opposition, so please, bring out a pot or pan and a wooden spoon. ***

We don’t have the money to get into Trudeau’s event, but we do have people power, and we can show that no amount of dollars is going to help this Prime Minister come election day if he continues to ignore our climate commitments, disrespect Indigenous rights and put this coast in peril.

We’ll march together to Trudeau’s fundraiser, where the Prime Minister hopes to fill his re-election coffers. With enough people outside, he’ll have to spend the whole night explaining to these supporters why he’s willing to risk a catastrophic oil spill in their backyards.
