- The Alberta tar sands are the largest environmental disaster of our times.
Vancouver (and British Columbia) is the proposed gateway* to China and the U.S. for this dirty oil from the Alberta tar sands.
- Notice the growing number of tankers passing under the Lion’s Gate and Second Narrows bridges.
- Proposed pipelines invite supertankers, 3 times the size of the ill-fated Exxon Valdez, within our city’s waterways, Vancouver’s centrepiece.
- Plans are under way to triple this tanker traffic going through Vancouver’s busy harbour.
- This radically increases the odds of an unfathomable environmental accident right on our doorstep.
- Look at the impact an oil spill would have on your health and our local economy, not to mention the environment.
- We can STOP this.
- SPEAK UP for clean energy, clean air, clean water, clean oceans, healthy forests and healthy people.
- STOP the Enbridge Pipeline and say NO to tankers in Vancouver’s harbour.
- Inform your family, friends and colleagues.
- Sign the NO TANKERS petition
- Stop the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline.
- Support the City of Vancouver’s Anti-Tankers Resolution.
- Support First Nations initiatives to protect our watersheds.
- Add your signature to 10,000 supporting ‘Save the Fraser Declaration’.
- Watch this inspired event.
* The proposed expansion of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline (actually building a way larger pipeline next to the smaller existing one) that ends in Burnaby will be a threat to Burrard Inlet, Vancouver harbour, the Salish Sea and the south coast of BC because of increased supertanker traffic. The proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline to Kitimat is an entirely new pipeline that will be a threat to northern BC coast from supertanker traffic. These two proposed projects will bring supertankers to the BC coast, Enbridge in the north and Kinder Morgan in the south. Neither proposed project bodes well for British Columbia.
