Tank Farm Rally

SFU’s Burnaby Campus is located next to a large Petrochemical storage facility known as a Tank Farm. The federal government recently endorsed the Kinder Morgan Tank Farm expansion, which will triple the size of this Tank farm. Increasing the size of the tank farm, and volume of petrochemicals stored will expose those at SFU to unacceptable levels of risk. Ways to be involved in the campaign:
