September 11, 2014: First Nations & Allies Launch Alliance to Protect Coastal Waters from Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain Pipeline
Proposals to triple the volume of tar sands production in Canada have sparked a new alliance of First Nations and Northwest tribes to stop it. Led by the Coast Salish Tseil-Waututh nation of British Columbia, the alliance urges environmental and faith allies to take "unprecedented, unified action" to protect and restore coastal waters and lands from fossil fuel expansion. Martha Baskin attended the opening ceremony of the historic launch.
