VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Thousands of people took to the streets of Vancouver — including the Cambie Bridge over the weekend — to speak out against Kinder Morgan’s expansion plans for the Trans Mountain Pipeline project.

Now, people are getting another chance to have their say.

City councillor Adriane Carr is hosting the first of four town hall meetings starting tonight in Kitsilano.

The federal government has until late December to decide on the $6.8 billion project put forth by Texas-based Kinder Morgan, while Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson has said approval will trigger more protests and public opposition.

Carr will start each of the four meetings with an update on the federal cabinet’s pending decision and urging people there to distribute information flyers.

After tonight, Carr will host open houses in Kilarney on Wednesday, Strathcona on Friday and then next Wednesday in the West End.

List of meetings:

• Mon. Nov. 21 – 7:30-9:30 pm – West Point Grey United Church – 4595 West 8th Avenue
• Wed. Nov 23 – 7:30-9:30 pm – Killarney Community Centre – 6260 Killarney Street
• Fri. Nov 25 – 6:30-8:30 pm – Strathcona Community Centre – 601 Keefer Street
• Wed. Nov 30 – 6:30-8:30 pm – Gordon Neighbourhood House (West End) – 1019 Broughton Street
