Peter von Puttkamer signed Sign the Howe Sound Declaration 2016-11-18 08:08:21 -0800As someone who grew up in the Howe Sound, and whose father pioneered tourism in the Squamish area in the 1960’s(Paradise Valley now North Shore Outdoor School) I am shocked that the government/industry would now be putting this pristine area at risk with industrial development. Stop this LNG work/project and other similar projects in the Howe Sound now- millions come from around the world to witness the beauty of the Howe Sound- not to see its destruction!20,342 signatures
Howe Sound is world renowned for its wild natural beauty, recreational opportunities, and the vibrant communities we call home. We value intact ecosystems that sustain and support our communities, our livelihoods, and our diverse local economies.
The proposed Woodfibre LNG project is based on faulty economics, will harm marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and poses an unacceptable health and safety risk for the communities of Howe Sound. This project does not fit our values.
We call on the Provincial and Federal governments to reject the Woodfibre LNG project and its associated pipelines and tankers.
