Actions and Detail Panel
Tankers, Climate, and Economy: A Community Forum
Mon, 20 March 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM PDT
In January, the BC government approved the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker expansion project. The project is on the minds of many British Columbians as they consider the risks to our coast. If completed, the project will result in a sevenfold increase in heavy oil tanker traffic in the Burrard Inlet threatening our local environment, economy, and First Nation communities.
On Monday March 20th, join MLAs George Heyman, David Eby, and Melanie Mark to hear from an expert panel on First Nations, municipality, and economic concerns, as well as legal and community action being taken.
Following the panel there will be town hall discussion where you can share your thoughts and solutions with your MLA.
