Movement opposing pipelines growing

Stop in at your local coffee shop April 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. to support the coast of British Columbia.

Stop in at your local coffee shop April 12 from 1 to 3 p.m. to support the coast of British Columbia!

There are so many reasons to protect B.C.’s coast from oil tanker traffic and April 12 is one opportunity for you to voice your love for the coast and to support a ban on the expansion of bulk crude oil tanker traffic in B.C.

Four local coffee shops will host information tables on April 12 from 1 to 3 — the Wandering Moose Café in Cumberland at 2739 Dunsmuir Ave, Zocalo Café in Courtenay at 208 Fifth St., the Broken Spoke in Courtenay at 420 Fitzgerald Ave. and

the Kaffee Klatch Bistro on Denman Island at 3646 Denman Rd.

People of all ages are encouraged to enjoy a hot beverage and learn more about the proposed Enbridge and Kinder Morgan expansion projects and about what can be done to protect the land, water and quality of life for future generations.

“The movement opposing these projects is growing and with the B.C. election only a month away we have an amazing opportunity to vote for the coast on May 14,” says Liz Rhodes, a local resident and sea kayak guide born and raised in the Comox Valley.

Numerous B.C. First Nations have signed the Save the Fraser Declaration to ban pipelines, and the Coastal First Nations Declaration to ban tankers carrying crude oil. Now we have an opportunity to convince our elected politicians to do the same.
