Statement from Tsleil-Waututh Nation Sacred Trust – Saturday October 28th
Since 2012, Tsleil-Waututh Nation (TWN) has been formally opposed to the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project. This project threatens the ecological and cultural health of the region and its communities.
Our assessment report, grounded in TWN law and backed by world-leading experts research has confirmed these risks as unacceptable. On this basis, TWN has denied it’s free, prior and informed consent.
We respect that all residents have the right to voice their concerns.
For Tsleil-Waututh Nation, the People of the Inlet, it is our sacred obligation to protect the water. Tsleil-Waututh Nation is focused on fighting Kinder Morgan in the courts. In our opposition to Kinder Morgan, we are many people paddling in the same direction.
