BURNABY, British Columbia—Around 100 activists, students and community members gathered outside Vancouver City Hall on Friday, March 25 to protest the construction of an oil pipeline within 100 meters (328 feet, or roughly the size of an American football field) of Burnaby Mountain Secondary School.
The project is an expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline, operated by Trans Mountain Corporation. It will increase the pipeline’s capacity from approximately 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day and has an estimated completion date of summer 2023.
Protests of the expansion have been occurring regularly for the last month, both in front of city hall and at the construction site itself.
