A small group of activists return at the very start of drilling work, later joined by several others. Mud Bay Drilling is conducting geotechnical survey work as a step towards allowing construction to begin on Kinder Morgan’s proposed Trans-Mountain dilbit export pipeline through the lower mainland, which would increase tanker traffic through Burrard Inlet by several fold.
This site is immediately beside the onramp to HWY-1 Eastbound from Brunette, a couple dozen meters from the Coho Salmon bearing Brunette River, the run in which is “in a severe state of decline.” – David Suzuki Foundation
This is taking place on unceded Coast Salish Territories in the  municipality of Coquitlam.
