Author: Evan Menzies Ever since Kinder Morgan announced it was suspending all non-essential spending on the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion, we have seen an unprecedented showing of public support. The silent majority is silent no more! The numbers speak for themselves. Five consecutive polls in a row have shown that a clear and growing majority of Canadians and British Columbians want this pipeline built. It might explain why protestors against this pipeline are starting to get a little… silly.
I wanted to take the opportunity to explain why it is Canadians are so upset with this callous and out of touch move to reward David Suzuki an honorary degree. Where to start?
Despite the fact the future of the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion remains uncertain, we’ve been witnessing something remarkable happen on the ground right across Canada over these past few weeks. Thousands of Canadians have rallied from B.C. to Manitoba to show their support for our energy sector. Nearly 20,000 letters have been sent to decision makers at several levels of government. And now, we are seeing support for the pipeline surging in B.C. and right across Canada. For the past year, Canadians have consistently heard through the media and online that opposition to this project among British Columbians was on the rise. They’ve been told First Nations communities don’t support the project. We know now none of that is true.
