The Monday, November 10, Climate Justice Forum radio program hosted by Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) gratefully welcomes Lynne Quarmby, professor and chair of the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia (B.C.), and one of five defendants in a $5.6 million injunction SLAPP lawsuit brought by Texas-based Kinder Morgan. Lynne will discuss the background of government, industry, and resistance actions and their implications for unceded Coast Salish territories and indigenous and settler protectors of Burnaby Mountain forest conservation lands from Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline expansion, in the wake of a years of citizen opposition, City of Burnaby and other lawsuits, recent encounters with Kinder Morgan survey crews, and Supreme Court of B.C. hearings on the SLAPP lawsuit. Broadcast on progressive, volunteer, community station KRFP Radio Free Moscow every Monday between 7:30 and 9:30 pm PST, live at 90.3 FM and online, the show covers continent-wide climate activism news and dirty energy developments, thanks to the generous, anonymous listener who adopted program host Helen Yost as her/his KRFP DJ.
