The expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline would triple the oil pumped from Northern Alberta through British Columbia to oil refineries in California, with 36 oil spills expected in a 50 year lifetime. Women are on the front of the fight against this pipeline. From Kayah George, of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation in Vancouver who uses storytelling to inspire action against this project which would destroy her homeland inlet which represents her community’s oldest ancestor; to Mary Lovell who has helped organise the Pull It Together campaign to raise funds for First Nations that are legally challenging the pipeline, raising over $600,000 in 2 years alone. And Kanahus Manuel, a Secwepeme woman who is leading the Tiny House Warriors: Our Land is Home movement. 10 solar powered homes solar block the pipeline route, half of which runs through un-surrendered Secwepeme territory. On March 10th Indigenous leaders led 10,000 local supporters on Coast Salish Territory in Vancouver to challenge this destructive project, declaring the pipeline will not be built.
