Continuing our public outreach activities

We’re countering the multimillion dollar sales pitch by Big Oil by providing the true facts about oil tanker traffic in newspapers, on the six o’clock news and on radio talk shows.

We travel to communities big and small to make sure people know the risks and costs they’ll face if tankers come to the coast.

We use Google Earth to show exactly what we stand to lose from an oil spill. Our interactive map is easy to use and informative, so check it out.

Energy and Climate Change

Coastal British Columbia was at a crossroads. The Harper government’s vision of an industrialized coastline with as many as three major fossil fuel ports appeared increasingly at odds with the aspirations of most British Columbians. Oil tankers have been banned from our North and Central Coast and Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) tankers not even considered in our waters until the Harper years. Projects proposed could have seen as many as 650-750 tankers of various kinds plying our coastal waters.
