They're back! A critical moment to #StopWoodfibreLNG
November 10, 2019
The proposed floating storage units at Woodfibre LNG, made of two 40-year old retrofitted LNG tankers that are already at the end of their lifespan.
We just found out that Woodfibre LNG, FortisBC, and the BC Oil and Gas Commission are presenting to the District of Squamish this Tuesday!
We need to be there too and make some noise!
LNG prices are crashing, and millions of people worldwide are marching for climate action, yet Woodfibre LNG seems to be creeping inexorably ahead. But we're not giving up!
With Woodfibre LNG's final investment decision looming, we need to send a clear message that we will hold them accountable each and every step of the way.
Will you stand with us and let Woodfibre LNG and FortisBC know that we don't want their climate wrecking, dirty fracked gas project in Howe Sound?
WHEN: 12:30pm - 1:00pm, Tuesday 12th November 2019
WHERE: Squamish Municipal Hall, 37955 2nd Avenue, Squamish BC
WHAT TO WEAR: Anything red, orange, yellow, or black.
WHAT TO BRING: Drums and noisemakers. We have a visual action planned with signs and banners saying "Climate Emergency" and "Stop Woodfibre LNG" and "Stop FortisBC."
12:30pm - 12:45pm Assemble outside Squamish Municipal Hall.
12:45pm - 1:00pm Join us in a photo action.
1:00pm - 3:30pm (OPTIONAL) Stay to hear what Woodfibre LNG and FortisBC are planning.
Please RSVP so we can plan this action!
Then join us on Thursday at Quest as Tracey Saxby and Eoin Finn share more than five years of research about Woodfibre LNG and the associated 24-inch high pressure FortisBC pipeline.
From fracking, to climate change, to the false promises of jobs, to ridiculous subsidies and tax breaks. Learn how these projects will impact the health and safety of our communities, put Howe Sound residents at risk, and threaten the recovery of Howe Sound’s ecosystems and wildlife.
WHAT: #FrackingCrazy: everything you didn't want to know about Woodfibre LNG and how it will impact Howe Sound communities.
WHEN: 6:30pm - 9:00pm, Thursday 14th November, 2019
