When Elizabeth May was here in Squamish she said she believes Justin Trudeau wants to do the right thing, but he needs to hear from more people. More people need to stand up.
My idea locally is that we get all the people against Woodfibre LNG to dress in Red, head to their coastline, ie… Squamish- everyone head to the waterfront… Bowen Island… their waterfront, North and West Vancovuer- their waterfront park… so on and so on— on the same day at the same time… ie- the weekend before BC day- then we get media to fly over… or a helicopter service to fly over and see the sea of Red against LNG…. ideally this could happen all over BC, but the impact would be the greatest here in the local area and the lower mainland.
In hopes we send the message to the rest of Canada and the Trudeau government that is community, this coastline does not grant permission for the LNG plant!
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.
