Parks or Pipeline? Send in your comments by October 12, 2014.

As British Columbia goes, so go the San Juan Islands. Here is our opportunity to have a say in stemming the flood of crude oil before it sails past our beaches. 
Dear Safe Shippers,
Those tankers that we Safe Shippers have been saying “NO” to? Well…
*Each year, 420 of those tankers would come from the proposed Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project. If this project is permitted, these tankers would carry crude oil by way of a new pipeline from Alberta tar sands to Burnaby BC, and they would carry it through our waters to other parts of the world to be burned.
One way to say “NO” to more tankers is to say “NO” to the new pipeline. Here’s another chance where we can do just that while making sure that the protected lands in British Columbia stay protected.
Kinder Morgan is now asking BC if they can run their proposed pipeline right through 3 provincial parks and 1 protected grasslands area. They are applying for a Provincial Protected Area Boundary Adjustment in order to use the land for construction of the pipeline and, once that is completed, the removed lands “may be returned to park or protected area status with pipeline operations authorized under a park use permit” (according to Kinder Morgan).
Here are three news article with more details (note the diverging tones of journalism):
CBC News (with detail maps of each proposed boundary adjustment)
The Province (Vancouver BC daily newspaper)
Journal of Commerce (construction industry news of Western Canada
Here is a map locating the specific parks and grasslands:
