The federal government is about to buy the failing Kinder Morgan pipeline for $4.5 billion of our money. But it's not late for us to stop the purchase. Read Below to find out how you can participate in a National Day of Action, Happening this Monday June 4!
What would you do with $4.5 Billion dollars? Buy a leaky pipeline? Then spend another $7 billion on construction costs? Sounds like a bad idea.
But as you may know, that is what the Trudeau government is planning.
Yes, your tax dollars are buying a pipeline.
We’re not going to let him get away with it.
The only way to stop the buyout is to show Trudeau that he seriously underestimated the backlash that he’s going to face. We need to speak out with a massive public outcry bigger than anything he expected.
That’s why we decided to join the National Day of Action to Stop the Kinder Morgan buyout for this Monday. In less that 48 hours, more than 40 people from Whitehorse to Brandon to Charlottetown have signed up to host snap action at their local MP offices.
Here in Winnipeg we have a 2 pronged plan:
WHAT: Rally Against the Kinder Morgan Buyout
WHEN: 4:00 PM THIS MONDAY JUNE 4, 2018
WHERE: Portage Place (393 Portage Ave) - Meet on Portage Ave or by the big clock inside
2) Before that, we are going to be visiting Liberal MP offices to tell our elected officals that we do no support the bailout. Here's the schedule:
Kevin Lamoureux - Winnipeg North | 98 Mandalay Dr | 12:00pm
Jim Carr - Winnipeg South Centre | 611 Corydon Ave | 1:30pm
Robert-Falcon Ouellette - Winnipeg Centre | 600 Ellice Ave | 2:45pm

If you cannot make the actual event PLEASE PHONE YOUR MP!!
As you know, here in Manitoba we are also facing the construction of the Line 3 pipeline. Since a fight against one pipeline is a fight against all pipelines, we will be taking this moment to also speak out against the dangers of Enbridge’s biggest project ever that will be leading to Tar Sand expansion. THIS AFFECTS US ALL, same as the construction of Kinder Morgan.
Special Note - given that Kinder Morgan is about to be purchased by our government, we should start calling it by its other name - Trans Mountain.
In some major cities there are several events planned. If you can't make the event above, you can click here to see if there's another nearby event that would work for you.
Thank you for your support. Let's do this.
