BURNABY – There were no tanker trucks rolling in or out of the North Burnaby Chevron Refinery Saturday afternoon. The roads were blocked by anti-pipeline activiists holding a ‘climate crime circus’ as part of a global day of action against Chevron. At issue is Chevron’s particiation in the Pacific Trail Pipeline and the destructive gas fracking it proposes using to supply the pipeline to the coast.
Unis’tot’en Clan representaives from the proposed route of the pipeline were on hand to pledge continued resistance. Clan spokesperson Freda Husan told the crowd, “We will resist all of their plans. We will act to protect our lands, the increasingly unstable climate and to do what is best for future generations.”
