This winter, the Joint Review Panel will give their recommendation on Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline to the federal government and Kinder Morgan is expected to submit an application for their proposed new Trans Mountain pipeline. If these proposals are approved, hundreds of tankers per year will put B.C.’s coast at risk.
British Columbians do not want tankers threatening the coast. A single oil spill would devastate marine ecosystems, coastal communities and coastal jobs.
Thousands have written and spoken out against Enbridge’s pipeline plans. More than 160 First Nations have signed the Save the Fraser River Declaration prohibiting the transport of tar sands crude through their lands and waters. Coastal First Nations have declared a ban on oil tankers in the Great Bear Rainforest.
Join us November 16th for a rally against tanker and pipeline projects in B.C.
