Over 150 peo­ple came to San Juan Coun­ty Park on MLK day to oppose the Kinder Mor­gan Trans Moun­tain Pipeline project. If the pipeline is allowed as pro­ceed as pro­posed it will increase the tanker ship­ping in Haro Straits from 5 tankers a month to 34 tankers and three barges per month.

This increase in the risk of a major Oil spill is unac­cept­able to Pro­tec­tors of the Sal­ish Sea, sit­ing threats to Orcas, marine ecosys­tems, beach­es and prop­er­ty val­ues in San Juan County.
