The worst possible place for a tanker spill or explosion. And after loading, the LNG tankers pass through Georgia and Juan de Fuca Straits - The busiest tanker traffic routes in Canada. I signed the Howe Sound Declaration because I #LoveHoweSound. #NoPipelines #NoTankers #NoWoodfibreLNG18,619 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.
