- Woodfibre LNG initially planned to begin construction in 2015 and be operational by 2017. We have successfully delayed construction by five years so far, and in 2019 shovels are yet to get in the ground.
- We have delivered the Howe Sound Declaration with over 20,000 signatures to municipal, provincial, and federal politicians to demonstrate there is no social license for Woodfibre LNG.
- We made Woodfibre LNG a municipal election issue in 2014 and 2018, a federal election issue in 2015 and 2019, and a provincial election issue in 2017.
- After sharing concerns about the impacts of seawater cooling on herring and other wildlife, Squamish Nation forced Woodfibre LNG to switch to air cooling, improving the project design.
- We facilitated participation in the Environmental Assessment process and generated more than 1,300 comments, twice.
- 1,600+ people then boycotted the Environmental Assessment process to draw attention to illegal donations from Woodfibre LNG staff to the BC Liberal government which threaten the integrity of the process.
- We succeeded in getting Municipal Councils and Regional Districts around Howe Sound to pass resolutions strongly opposing the proposed Woodfibre LNG project.
- Woodfibre LNG is now proposing a “floatel” for temporary workforce housing, after we built community opposition to the proposed LandSea workcamp at Britannia Beach.
- We stopped the District of Squamish from signing an agreement for $2 million in taxes from Woodfibre LNG (now valued at $7-9 million annually).
- We stopped FortisBC from drilling test boreholes in the Squamish estuary in 2015.
- We forced FortisBC to relocate its proposed compressor station away from the industrial park, in Squamish in 2015.
- FortisBC is now relocating its compressor station to the Woodfibre site due to concerns we have shared about the close proximity of the current location to schools and neighbourhoods in Squamish.
- After sending over 4,000 letters of opposition to the proposed Burnco gravel mine at McNab Creek, the Sunshine Coast Regional District has denied the permit Burnco needs to process gravel on site, effectively halting the project. We continue to pay close attention.
- Hundreds of people in kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards came together to launch this campaign in 2017 with a heart-shaped flotilla, resulting in a viral video that was featured at the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival.
- In 2019, we created an orca out of people holding umbrellas, which resulted in another viral video that was syndicated by media across British Columbia.
- #ZeroCarbonChallenge (coming soon...)
