Hug the Mountain

Hug the Mountain is a Protect the Planet lead event on Burnaby Mountain that brings together partner organizations that are working to stop the TransMountain Pipeline Expansion.

Why Burnaby Mountain? Burnaby Mountain is a highly impacted site of the construction as it hosts the Burnaby Terminal (a collection of storage tanks) and the Burnaby Mountain Tunnel, which will involve boring through the mountain to accommodate the pipeline. Residents of Burnaby, students, faculty and staff of Simon Fraser University and nearby schools, and the City of Burnaby, Vancouver and New Westminster oppose TMX. At the inaugural Hug on May 7 2022, we gathered to sound our collective message of NO MORE PIPELINES! We will continue to show the mountain some love in 2023.
