When Kinder Morgan announced the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion, residents of B.C. and workers from all over Canada were promised that their province would see major benefits.
But concern in the Canadian community is growing.
They are worried about Kinder Morgan’s level of commitment to safety and rigorous training for their workers. Due to these concerns, the B.C. Coalition for Safety Before Profits was formed, which includes members from he Labourer’s International Union of North America, United Association Canada (Canadian Piping Trades), and Teamsters Canada.
These unions have built most of the pipelines in Canada, with highly skilled workers who put safety first.
If you want to support thousands of experienced British Columbians, and other Canadian workers, who are ready to work on this pipeline you can help in a number of ways – by sharing this information on social media and emailing Kinder Morgan.
