Kinder surprise

Members of the Mid Island Chapter of the Council of Canadians held a peaceful protest, made up mostly of songs, at the Beban Park Social Centre on Dec. 4 during an open house hosted by Kinder Morgan to educate people on the proposed twinning of its Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta’s oil sands to Vancouver. Protesters say the West Coast environment will be put under pressure due to increased tanker traffic and potential spills. - Toby Gorman photo
