We're getting desperate. As soon as the BC EAO delivers their report on February 2nd, Minister Heyman can no longer speak with stakeholders (that would be us!) about the proposed Burnco gravel mine.
We have grave concerns about the integrity of the environmental assessment process, and the use of the professional reliance approach to assess the Burnco gravel mine. It feels like Minister Heyman is being kept under lock and key.
If the Minister won't meet with us, we're going to take the message directly to him. Our estuaries are too important for our wild salmon and the 76 remaining resident orcas that depend on them. Can you join us outside Minister Heyman's constituency office on Friday 26th January?
Dress warmly and bring a hot drink.
We will have signs, but if you want to make your own some suggested slogans are:
- Wild salmon not short-term profits
- Estuaries are irreplaceable
- 76 orcas need wild salmon
- Salmon before profits
- Save McNab Creek
- Stop Burnco gravel mine
