The oceans, and waters are our canary if we keep this up, then we won’t sustain. Aside from the obvious-reduce, reuse, recycle let’s not endorse companies that don’t. We are to blame with our “needyness” as much as the bigger corporations. Oceans need protection.20,528 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, worsen climate change, 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.
