A citizen-led group wants to stop Kinder Morgan by putting its proposed Trans Mountain expansion project to a popular vote.
Dogwood Initiative recently announced it plans to force a referendum under B.C.’s Recall and Initiative Act, depending how next year’s provincial election plays out.
“If there is a party after the provincial election that is determined to side with the federal government and Kinder Morgan on this pipeline, then we’ll launch a citizens’ initiative,” campaign coordinator Sophie Harrison told the NOW.
A citizens’ initiative allows a registered voter to propose changes to an existing law where the province has jurisdiction. For the referendum to go through, the voter must collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered voters in each provincial electoral district within 90 days of the initiative’s launch.

The Green Party of Canada voted unanimously to launch a national campaign to overturn Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s approval of the Kinder Morgan pipeline project.
Vancouver Green Party city councillor Adriane Carr submitted a motion for an emergency resolution at a special general meeting held in Calgary, Alberta, on December 4.
The resolution was expanded to include campaigning against the approval of the TransCanada Energy East pipeline and to overturn the pro-Enbridge Line 3 pipeline decision made by the federal cabinet on November 29.
Members also voted to expand public discussion about climate change and pipelines to include the benefits of transitioning to a socially just, low-carbon renewable energy-based economy.
