    Climate change activistsare planning to surroundthe Kinder Morgan marineterminal on land and wa-ter in Burnaby next week-end.

    The Saturday,May 14event is part of Break Free,a global series of protestsagainst fossil fuel projects.The Burnaby event will in-clude an estimated 100 kay-akers on the water, whileothers hold a sit-in onland, all surrounding the

    Westridge MarineTerminal,where tankers fill up withcrude on the Burrard Inlet.I think the tone of the

    action is to send a clearmessage to our elected lead-ers that theres no con-sent for the Kinder Mor-gan pipeline, and theres an

    urgent need to leave fossilfuels in the ground to ba-sically transition off fossilfuels to a clean-energy fu-ture, said RuthWalmsley,a spokesperson with Burn-aby Residents OpposingKinder Morgan Expansion.BROKE is coordinating

    with 350.org and Green-peace, the two main groupsorganizing Break Free ac-tions in Canada.Walms-ley said the Burnaby eventwill be peaceful, and shesnot expecting any arrestsor property damage. How-ever, she expressed upset

    over news reported in theNational Post that PrimeMinister JustinTrudeau isgoing to approve the EnergyEast andTrans Mountainpipeline proposals.I think its disgusting.

    FOR THEBEST LOCAL

    RottenratrilesnewcarbuyerByJeremyDeutschjdeutsch@burnabynow.com

    For the last two-and-a-half years,Mari-na Roma-March has been driving around inher Honda Odyssey feeling kind of stupid.Ill be driving and Im constantly

    smelling, she joked.The Burnaby mom has been sniffing

    around to try and find the source of a not-so-funny smell that she says first appearedin her 2013 vehicle a couple days after shetook it home from the dealership.She bought the car brand new from the

    Open Road Honda on Kingsway, but withina couple days, a bad odour started emanat-ing from the vents.Roma-March brought it back right away,

    but Honda couldnt find a problem. It wasthe beginning of a two-year odyssey for thefamilys Odyssey.Every time the car was up for mainte-

    nance, she would complain about the smellthat never seemed to go away but mostlyappeared when she turned on the defogger,predominantly on the drivers side.Mechanics told her they found evidence

    of rodent droppings but not the culprit.At one point, she turned to Honda Can-

    ada for help, getting the dealership to takeapart the vans H-vac system and dashboardin November 2014, but Roma-Marchclaims the smell came back a couple weekslater, just a little less pungent.

    The smell continued until the beginningof this month, when her husband noticedthe reflection of fur in the windshield on thedrivers side.A mouse or rat had indeed found its way

    into a vent on the inside of the van anddied.Just driving the car knowing theres

    a dead rodent there, its creepy, Roma-March told theNOW.The question now is how the rodent got

    in the van and how long it has been there.

Unfortunate-ly, if Fraser Health cantcome up with that option,in another 60 days we willbe bringing in a contractor,and we will make sure thechanges are smooth, to en-sure minimum impact onthe residents.Meanwhile, family mem-
