Kinder Morgan update: We rest our case

It’s been a hard-fought couple of weeks, but the Kinder Morgan pipeline hearing has finally come to a close.

The longest Federal Court of Appeal hearing on record saw environmental groups, First Nations communities, and local governments all make compelling cases to the Court about why the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline project cannot proceed.

We’re optimistic that our combined efforts have shut the door on Kinder Morgan — like they did on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway project and TransCanada’s Energy East pipeline.

Thank you for sticking with us, sharing our work with your friends and family, and donating to support this important case. You made sure we were able to stand up for Southern Resident killer whales, our communities and the climate.

As many of you know, going to court to challenge dirty energy projects is a major commitment. It takes thousands of hours of preparation and research to ensure we can win even the toughest legal battles. And over the last few weeks, I’ve seen with my own eyes the long hours our lawyers, Dyna and Margot, have put in to prepare for this historic hearing.

Send our hard-working lawyers on this case a message that lets them know how much you appreciate their efforts to protect Southern Resident killer whales and stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline. 

Your words of encouragement will let them know people like you are in their corner and rooting for them.
