Roxanne Stanick signed Sign the Howe Sound Declaration 2019-12-11 19:42:53 -0800Howe Sound is a magical place, finally recovering from previous pollution from heavy industry in the area. Marine mammals are returning, fish and other aquatic life are flourishing, and mammals along the shoreline are increasing as well.
Woodfibre LNG will destroy this exquisite marine Ecosystem, from noise pollution to LNG spills and the possibility of massive explosions of LNG. Protecting marine ecosystems should be out first priority, not transporting highly flammable LNG through designated Marine Sanctuaries.
The influx of 600 men in a man camp on a barge in Howe Sound will cause even more destruction, with workers flying in and out disturbing the peace and raising noise and air pollution dramatically. We don’t need man-camps in Howe Sound, boozing it up on the weekends or after work. Women will be at risk from male workers who are looking for sex on their days off. 600 men on a barge in Howe Sound is a bad idea. So is fracking LNG and shipping it through this precious marine sanctuary.20,261 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.
