Ban Oil Tankers from Vancouver & Coastal Waters

Why is Vancouver being risked to ship Alberta’s dirty oil to China?
Each week two tankers carry tar sands crude oil through Vancouver’s busy harbour.
Oil companies plan to increase shipments to 10 tankers per week.
This is a disaster waiting to happen in our back yard.

Each tanker carries up to 700,000 barrels of heavy crude oil.
For some perspective…the Exxon Valdez spilled 266,000 barrels.

“A Day for the Bay”  – Sunday, October 17

All are invited to participate in a public event to protect of our coastline and to take a stand against crude oil tankers in Vancouver and our coastal waters on Sunday, October 17th.

A flotilla of boats and people on land will rally at 2nd Beach in Vancouver for some fun events. Details here>
