Aboriginal groups and SkeenaWild are preparing to launch a series of legal actions against the construction of this liquefaction facility off the Flora Bank where 80-90% of Skeena’s salmon and steelhead have their nurseries.
SkeenaWild and the Skeena Corridor Nations, a powerful group of hereditary leaders from Gitanyow, Lax Kw’alaams, Wet’suwet’en, Gitxsan, Takla, Lake Babine and Haida, are exploring all political and legal options to obtain long-term protection of the Skeena River estuary and the salmon run that forms the economic, social and cultural foundation of life in the area.
At the October 27 townhall, Liquefied Fracked Gas: Risky Economic and Ecological Business, the Comox Valley Council of Canadians will be fundraising in support of multiple legal actions that are being planned. In addition to collecting donations at the door, we will have Maude Barlow’s latest book, Boiling Point, for sale ($20) and the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy’s 2017 calendar ($15).
Everyone is invited to attend to learn more about the important and very risky issues around liquefied fracked gas in BC. For more information on the town-hall, visit: https://cvcofcanadians.wordpress.com/2016/10/02/liquefied-fracked-gas-risky-economic-and-ecological-business/
World Community’s assortment of fair trade goods will also be available for purchase.
