Posted January 21, 2017 at 5:49 am by Tim Dustrude
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.
