Stand Up To Oil statement on NEB recommendation of Trans Mountain Pipeline

The Stand Up to Oil campaign condemns the National Energy Board’s recommendation today for approval of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion. The Trans Mountain catastrophe transcends the international border—imperiling the endangered Southern Resident orcas, contributing to the cumulative impacts of vessel traffic in the Salish Sea, and exacerbating the risk of oil spills in both Canada and Washington state. We recognize the leadership of Tribes and First Nations in the fight against new oil infrastructure and we will continue to take action in opposition to any expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline.
