Deborah Greaves signed Sign the Howe Sound Declaration 2019-05-04 08:31:54 -0700The Howe Sound only recently recovered from being a toxic soup of mining and mill waste. Dolphins, orcas, seals and even Humpback whales are in the area regularly, and the sea floor is once again alive with abundant life.
I believe the fracking that releases LNG is poisonous to water systems and potentially geologically destabilizing, and the ships used to transport LNG would be a detriment to the beautiful Howe Sound. I also believe the economic benefits to B.C. would be short-lived.
Here is my sister’s definition of the word used so often when discussing mega projects:
J O B S :
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.
