Woodfibre LNG's current Environmental Assessment (EA) Certificate expires on 26th October 2020. To keep the existing EA certificate they need to begin construction before it expires, and that's not going to happen as the market for LNG has crashed and Woodfibre LNG hasn't even made a Final Investment Decision yet.
Woodfibre LNG is using COVID-19 as an excuse to get a five-year extension on its Environmental Assessment (EA) Certificate. Other excuses include the bankruptcy of one of their construction companies, and delays due to the three amendments to their EA certificate (all of which they could have avoided if they'd listened to the general public in the first place).
This is an opportunity to #StopWoodfibreLNG for good.
We need your voices to help amplify our message. Please take a moment to send a letter to the Ministers and Associate Deputy Minister Scott Bailey, asking them not to approve a 5-year extension for Woodfibre LNG's EA certificate. This decision will happen any day now.
You can send a letter using the sample text provided, but please take a moment to personalize it - personal letters are much more powerful.
Local governments around Howe Sound have expressed their continued opposition to Woodfibre LNG, or called for conditions to be added to any extension to hold Woodfibre LNG accountable for their greenhouse gas emissions.
This is a critical moment. Please take action.
