With over two years of continued growing opposition to the Woodfibre LNG project, municipalities around Howe Sound have passed motions to ban tankers in the Sound and Squamish Mayor Patricia Heinztman stated disapproval of Woodfibre LNG as it stands today, the Sea to Sky is certainly a hot spot for provincial politics and the global rush to push through dirty energy project like Woodfibre LNG. 

Communities along the Sound are at a pivotal time to decide what legacy we leave for the future. What role will we play?

The event will begin promptly at 6:30 pm followed by a panel discussion on the locally proposed Woodfibre LNG project - featuring award-winning author Wade Davis, My Sea to Sky Director of Research Eoin Finn and filmmakers Damien Gillis and Fiona Rayher. The speakers panel will be moderated by Dogwood Initiative's Energy & Democracy Director, Kai Nagata.
