  • Take Action to #StopWoodfibreLNG

    Woodfibre LNG and FortisBC are coming to give an update to Squamish council on Tuesday 23rd July.

    We need to be there too, en masse.

    With Woodfibre LNG's final investment decision looming, we need to send a clear message that we're not giving up. We will hold them accountable each and every step of the way, and make it difficult for them to proceed.

    As communities across Canada declare a Climate Emergency, a recent report has found that new LNG development is undermining action on climate change.

    Enough is enough. We cannot develop new fossil fuel infrastructure like LNG if we want a livable planet for our children and our grandchildren.

    Not to mention the upstream impacts of fracking, and the local impacts to our wildlife, health, and safety.

    Will you stand with us and let Woodfibre LNG and FortisBC know that we don't want their dirty fracked gas project in Howe Sound?

    WHEN: 8:30am - 9:00am, Tuesday 23rd July 2019

    WHERE: Squamish Municipal Hall, 37955 2nd Avenue, Squamish BC

    WHAT TO WEAR: Anything red, orange, yellow, or black.

    WHAT TO BRING: Drums and noisemakers. We have a visual action planned with signs and banners saying "Climate Emergency" "There is No Planet B" and "Stop Woodfibre LNG."

    DETAILED ITINERARY:

    8:30am - 8:45am Assemble outside Squamish municipal hall.

    8:45am - 9:00am Join us in a photo action to send a clear message to Woodfibre LNG and FortisBC.

    9:00am - 11:00am (OPTIONAL) Stay to hear what Woodfibre LNG and FortisBC are planning.

    Please RSVP so we can plan this action!

    Together we are fearless and we are determined. We hope to see you on July 23rd.

    Want to volunteer to help create this action?

    If you like to get creative, we will be painting signs and banners on Sunday 21st July in Squamish from 4pm to 6pm. MORE DETAILS HERE.
