THE GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST OF BRITISH COLUMBIA,CANADA IS SAFE FOR NOW!!! MOST OF THE FIRST NATIONS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY THE PIPELINE GOING THROUGH AND AROUND THE GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST ARE IN COURT NOW AND SHOULD WIN THEIR CASES DUE TO THE UNANIMOUS DECISION BY THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA FINDING THAT THE TSIHQOT'IN NATION CAN CONTINUE TO HOLD LEGAL TITLE TO THEIR TRADITIONAL TERRITORY IN CENTRAL B.C.
....lushness of our rainforests. They feed bugs in the streams, mushrooms sprouting off nurse logs, bald eagles, river otters, bears and on and on.CRITICALLY, THE COURT FOUND THAT THE DEVELOPMENT ON LAND OWNED BY INDIGENEOUS PEOPLE REQUIRES CONSENT OF THESE NATIONS!!!!Great News! Historic Supreme Court decision a crucial step for Indigenous peoples in CanadaOn June 26, a unanimous decision by the Supreme Court of Canada found that the Tsilhqot’in people continue to hold legal title to some 2000 square kilometres in the heart of their traditional territory in central British Columbia.It’s hard to overstate the importance of this historic ruling, both for the Tsilhqot’in people, who first went to court to protect their land rights more than 20 years ago, and for other Indigenous nations across Canada.Much of the route of the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline crosses territory where there are no treaties with Indigenous peoples and the underlying issue of Indigenous land title has never been resolved. These issues were excluded from the mandate of the public review on which the government says it based its decision to approve Northern Gateway.
THERE ARE 3 PROVINCIAL PARKS, AND 1 PROTECTED NATURE RESERVE THAT THE PIPELINE WANTED TO HAVE THE B.C. GOVT. CHANGE THE BOUNDARIES ON, SO IT WOULD BE EASIER TO INSTALL THE PIPELINE.

KINDER MORGAN/TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE WORKERS...
Kinder Morgan has proposed to triple the capacity of its existing Trans Mountain Pipeline, which carries crude oil and other products from Alberta to Port Metro Vancouver, or Westridge Terminal, Burnaby, B.C. thru Finn Ck. Prov.Pk., N, Thompson River Prov.Pk, Lac Du Bois Grasslands, Bridal Viel Falls, Prov. Pk. all in B.C.Kinder Morgan/Trans Mountain Pipeline owns a pipeline that has transported oil from Alberta to Burnaby for 60 years. It is now is applying to the federal government to twin the pipeline, to increase the oil flow from 300,000 to 890,000 barrels per day. The project would increase the number of oil tankers in the Vancouver area from 60 per year, to more than 400, said the company.
The Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMX) is a proposal to expand the existing Trans Mountain pipeline system between Edmonton, AB and Burnaby, BC. It would include approximately 987 km of new pipeline, new and modified facilities, such as pump stations and tanks, and the reactivation of 193 km of existing pipeline. The Westridge Marine Terminal would also be expanded.
TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE WANTS TO GO RIGHT UNDER THE BURNABY MOUNTAIN. SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY SITS ON TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN AND THERE IS A NATURE RESERVE. OBVIOUSLY, BURNABY DOES NOT WANT THIS TO HAPPEN, BUT THE NEB GAVE PERMISSION FOR THE PIPELINE COMPANY TO ACCESS THE LAND TO DO THEIR STUDY TO SEE IF IT WOULD BE FEASIBLE, STATING THAT THEY DID NOT NEED PERMISSION FROM THE CITY OF BURNABY.A FOGGY DAY - BURNABY MOUNTAIN IN FOREGROUND WITH SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY ON TOP..

The Trans Mountain Expansion Project team has worked extensively with Port Metro Vancouver (PMV), the Pacific Pilotage Authority (PPA) and the BC Coast Pilots (BCCP) to determine a preferred dock layout. We have also incorporated feedback from the City of Burnaby and our community discussions in the planning.
Paddlers performed a ceremony at the third annual Salish Sea Summer Gathering to show that oil, in particular, the twinning of Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain Pipeline that would subject B.C. waters to an estimated 400 tankers per year, is not welcome in the Tsleil-Waututh Nation's ancestral waters.
THIS MAP OF THE GREAT BEAR SEA SHOWS HOW IT INCORPORATES THE SALISH SEA. BOTH ARE AT RISK WITH OIL TANKERS GOING THROUGH THEIR WATERS.

The Great Bear Sea is home to an incredible bounty of marine life — including humpback whales, sea otters, dozens of other mammals, and hundreds of species of fish. But this is not just about saving the wildlife. The ocean generates half of the oxygen we breathe and plays a major role in stabilizing the climate.
THE GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST IS ALSO ALONG THE GREAT BEAR SEA.

In the spring there is a Herring run, they lay their eggs on the kelp, and the eggs (roe) are washed ashore by the waves, The herrring has always been prized by the First Nations.
SOME OF THE SEA OTTERS - ABOVE ARE TAGGED FOR OBSERVANCE. ONCE ALMOST GONE FROM THE GREAT BEAR SEA, SOME WERE BROUGHT DOWN FROM ALASKA, AND NOW THERE ARE HUNDREDS+
THE SALMON ARE SO IMPORTANT TO THE GREAT BEAR SEA, MARINE ANIMALS PREY ON THEM, THE SPIRIT (KEROMODE) BEARS, GRIZZLIES, BLACK BEARS, THE RAIN WOLVES, AND MANY SPECIES OF BIRDS FEED ON THEM. ALSO THEY ARE A VERY IMPORTANT PART OF FIRST NATIONS DIET.
THERE IS A WHITE FOAM CALLED MILT THAT WASHES UP TO THE SHORES.

NOW WE HAVE TO TRY TO SAVE THE SALISH SEA FROM THIS OVER LOAD OF TANKERS FROM TRANS MOUNTAIN PIPELINE, AND ALSO THE DOUGLAS CHANNEL HAS DRAWN SOME MAJOR CONCERNS!! WE CAN NOT FORGET THE GREAT BEAR SEA, NOR THE SALISH SEA!!Whey-Ah-Wichen/Cates Park, North Vancouver, B.C. have signed an international treaty with First Nations of Washington State to protect the Salish Sea.Members of the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations paddle canoes on the waters of Burrard Inlet to the Kinder Morgan Burnaby Terminal for a ceremony ...
Pledge | Save the Salish Sea- Americans and Canadians of the Salish Sea share one coast, one ecosystem and one climate, We are coming together across the border to choose a different future for our region.nternational Treaty to Protect the Salish Sea - COAST SALISH TERRITORY, NORTH VANCOUVER, BC; SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 – Today, First Nations from the lower mainland, Vancouver Island, and Washington State have come together to sign an historic treaty to protect the Salish Sea from tar sands oil and related threats, making the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Expansion Project illegal under Coast Salish Law.
