Thank-You Rally for MP Ron McKinnon

2 RSVPS

Who's RSVPing

Will you come?

In November, MP Ron McKinnon did something amazing: he stood up to his party on Kinder Morgan and published an open letter stating that the government did not have the "social licence" to approve the pipeline.

We think it's important to acknowledge when our politicians take a firm position to protect our environment. On December 13th, at 12 noon, join us outside of Ron McKinnon's office (3278 Westwood Street, Suite 101, Port Coquitlam) for a Thank You Rally! We'll bring him some holiday cookies, a gift, and a letter from all of us at Force of Nature. We'll also have letter-writing materials so that everyone there can write their own thank-you letters and deliver them right away!

I'm also excited to take this opportunity to encourage MP McKinnon to continue to stand with his constituents in opposing Kinder Morgan. He has posted a statement on his website accepting that the decision to approve the pipeline was "in the national interest." Now is the time to remind him that there is no social licence for this pipeline to go forward, that this pipeline violates Indigenous Rights, that this pipeline will contribute to climate change, and that we do not accept that Kinder Morgan is in the national interest - and neither should he.

Check out our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/events/563393520451802/ - and we'll see you all on the 13th!

    I just discovered this message today – over a month after the fact. I agree that Ron McKinnon should be commended. He is also the MP responsible for the protection of good samaritans legislation. I hope that we are able to get Indigenous Government, elder advocates and all activists motivated by good will, to put together a strategy that brings everyone into a process to accomplish everything possible to reach the 17 Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. Where we have evidence that Colonial Government is unwilling to act in good faith, we need a method of enabling everyone to support the ethically needed genuine policies that could be developed along Original Society values and articulated by Indigenous Government.
