    Pipelineforum onThursday

    Burnabys Stoney CreekEnvironment Committee is holdinga series of public forums on KinderMorgans pipeline expansion plan.

    The first meeting is Thursday, June28, at 7 p.m. at the Jennifer AtchisonEnvironmental Centre, at 2730Beaverbrook Cres. Michael Hale ofPipe Up Network, a group opposed tothe pipeline expansion, will be speak-ing at the forum.

    We are trying to get some factsaboutotherperspectiveson thepipelinewith a view of making this whole thingas transparent as a possible, said AlanJames, secretary of the Stoney CreekEnvironment Committee. The pipe-line currently crosses Stoney Creek, sowe have a very vested interest that ourcreek is not damaged by this process.

    James said the forums will be vid-eotaped and posted online at www.scec.ca.

    The main purpose is transparency.We dont want Kinder Morgan to dosomething the public isnt aware of,he said.

    Kinder Morgan is planning toincrease pipeline capacity from 300,000barrels a day to 750,000 by twinningthe existing Trans Mountain pipe-line, which runs oil from Alberta toBurnaby. The move would bring moretanker traffic to the Burrard Inlet, andKinder Morgan would have to doublecapacity at the existing tank farm onBurnaby Mountain. The company hasyet to apply to the National EnergyBoard for project approval.

    For more information on the pipe-line forums, email stoneycreek@handshake.ca.

    A man helped free a Canadian iconentangled in fishing line and a barbedhook this week.

    Ethan Bartolozzi was at Deer Lake onSunday, June 24, when he came across aCanada goose just lying on the ground.When he looked closer, he found a fish-ing line with a barbed hook stuck inthe goose. With the help of bystanders,Bartolozzi removed the hook and cutthe line, freeing the bird, which limpedaway.

    I guess they were quite lucky, saidYolanda Brooks, from the Burnaby-basedWildlife Rescue Association of B.C. Theassociation generally advises people towrap animals up, put them in a box andbring them to the centre, where they canrehabilitate the creatures. Sometimeswhen animals are frightened, they canattack people, Brooks said.

    If the goose could walk away on itslegs, it was not a serious injury, and itwill probably heal itself, she said. Theygot the fishing wire off and did a goodjob helping the animal.

    Brooks said the association gets sev-eral cases a year of water birds entangledin fishing line, and sometimes its quiteserious.

    It sort of kills them slowly, she said.We always say to people who are outfishing to discard of the line properly.Dont leave it lying around. It will killwildlife.
