Rally opposes pipeline

A rally opposing the Northern Gateway project will take place outside Comox Valley MLA Don McRae’s office Wednesday.

On Oct. 24 at noon, a rally opposing the Northern Gateway project will take place outside MLA Don McRae’s office at 437 Fifth St. in Courtenay.

People across the province will link arms in front of their provincial representatives’ offices to symbolize an unbroken wall of  opposition.

A majority of British Columbians are opposed to the expansion of tanker traffic on B.C.’s coast.

Over 100 First Nations have signed the Save the Fraser Declaration to ban pipelines from their land and First Nations of the North and Central Pacific Coasts and Haida Gwaii have signed the Coastal First Nations Declaration to ban tankers carrying crude from transiting their lands and waters.

The Union of B.C. Municipalities, along with over 20 individual local governments, have called for a tanker expansion ban that would stop Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipelines.

If you would like to show your opposition to tanker traffic on our coast, please take the time to attend this event.
