Talk: Pipelines in BC: What's Behind the Controversy

Speaker: Andrew Frank, Environmental Protection & Public Relations Departments

Abstract:

Pipeline proposals are a flashpoint of environmental controversy in Canada, and especially British Columbia. While they are partially about the risk of oil spills, they are a symptom of larger unaddressed policy issues, including Canada’s international commitments to reducing climate change and respecting Indigenous rights. Can Canada still build pipelines while respecting these commitments, and under what conditions? What role can citizens play in helping to address these controversies?
