Force of nature meet about Kinder morgan

         In the last few weeks the Kinder Morgan pipeline has been in the headlines a lot and its been all bad news for those narrow interests that want to see tankers filled with tar sands crude off our shores. The recent events on Burnaby Mountain have increased awareness and opposition to these pipeline projects and have opened the door to a broader conversation about these issues.

          We need to take advantage of this moment and get out in our communities and have as many conversations as possible with our neighbours while the risks of this pipeline is still front of mind. That is why Force of Nature is holding an Activist Meeting next Wednesday and I want you to join us.

Wednesday December 17th starting at 6:30pm
Port Moody Recreation Center 300 Ioco Rd.
Multipurpose Room 2

At Force of Nature, we believe that our elected leaders should stand up for the communities that they represent. When it comes to communities like ours, that are under threat from the Kinder Morgan pipeline, we need more than ever to be sure that we are electing champions that will fight for us.

We believe that the best way to make sure this happens is by creating engaged, resilient communities and that the we can only achieve this by getting out in neighbourhoods like yours and having face to face conversations with our friends and neighbours.

That is where you come in, we need your help to build the kind of community that can stand up to Kinder Morgan and take back our countries politics.

Please join us at the Activist Meeting and find out how you can be part of this growing movement to keep this dirtiest of fossil fuels out of our communities.

If you have any questions please feel free to call me directly at 604 379 6735.

Thank you for your support
