New map shows KXL pipeline route: Highlights risk to Indigenous and farming communities


New Map Shows KXL Pipeline Route

Highlights Risk to Indigenous & Farming Communities

Map can be found here: https://climatealliancemap.org/kxl-map

June 25, 2020 (Bemidji, MN) - The Indigenous Environmental Network, in collaboration with the Climate Alliance Mapping Project and the Keystone XL Mapping Project, have just launched the KXL Pipeline Map, an interactive tool that highlights the route of the Keystone XL (KXL) pipeline, a tar sands project of the TC Energy corporation. This map is a free and public tool designed to support impacted communities along the route about the risks of living in proximity to fossil fuel pipelines and development.

On the map users will be able to locate the pipeline route, pumping stations, pipe storage yards, and man camp locations (also known as construction camps). All information was gathered from public documents. The online map can be found here: https://climatealliancemap.org/kxl-map

For over a decade, Indigenous nations and communities have continuously denied consent to the KXL pipeline from crossing their territories, citing environmental concerns, the desecration of sacred sites, treaty rights violations, and the risks of sexual violence connected with man camps.

The following are quotes from the project partners:
