The fight against fracking, fracked gas pipelines and LNG terminals is heating up in BC and on Vancouver Island.
On Tuesday Nov. 4t the Comox Valley Council of Canadians will be hosting a town hall meeting for an informative discussion on the ramifications of fracking and LNG development. The LNG town hall will take place at 7 p.m. at Mark Isfeld Secondary School in Courtenay.
With over 14 massive LNG terminals proposed and many more super tankers slated for the B.C. coast, communities are mobilizing to take a stand against a fractured future and oppose Premier Clark’s LNG agenda.
“Wherever you live in B.C., fracking and LNG will impact your community – from the frackfields of northeast B.C. to the multiple pipelines, LNG terminals and super tankers proposed for the northwest coastline, Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and the Lower Mainland”, says Leila Darwish, the Council of Canadians Pacific regional organizer and one of the town hall panel members.
“LNG is not clean, green, safe, or economical. These projects put the health and safety of our communities, the environment and the coast at risk.”
“This hits close to home – there are proposals for LNG projects in Campbell River, Alberni Inlet, Howe Sound, and Delta. Is this what our community wants — LNG super tankers off our coast?” asked Comox Valley resident, Linda Safford.
“What are the public health and safety concerns with having LNG plants and tankers in our backyard?”
