The event is being organized by local volunteers and will bring together a diverse group of Terrace residents to stand together nationwide with thousands of Canadians to speak out against oil development.
Local spokesperson Anne Hill explains, “We support the Coastal First Nations’ tanker ban and the Save the Fraser Declaration, and will stand with First Nations to defend our communities against the Northern Gateway Pipeline, supertankers on our coast, and Christy Clark’s deals with Alison Redford and Big Oil.”
Over 130 First Nations have banned tar sands oil from transiting their territories, Coastal First Nations have a tanker ban, and municipalities across the region have passed resolutions in opposition. On November 16th we will be standing together to defend our communities from Enbridge’s risky pipeline and tanker proposal and calling on Christy Clark to represent the majority of British Columbians who oppose this project.
With the JRP and federal cabinet making their decision on Enbridge in the new year, and the recently-announced framework agreement between Christy Clark and Alison Redford, now is an important moment to let our governments know that we still say no to Enbridge.Who:
