In the rolling country of central British Columbia, Michael LeBourdais’s Whispering Pines Indian Band is looking forward to a cash injection from a new pipeline proposed by Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP. He’ll be seeking compensation for his band if it doesn’t go through. Meanwhile, 400 km (250 miles) away near the pipeline’s terminus in Vancouver, the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation is battling the expansion, saying it will lead to oil spills on their tribal land and in the waters of Burrard Inlet.
