Sierra Club BC, represented by lawyers from Ecojustice, has called for the termination of the Site C dam project in its submission to the British Columbia Utilities Commission (BCUC).
Sierra Club BC supports the provincial government’s ban on the trophy hunting of grizzly bears and all grizzly bear hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest, where this brings provincial policy in line with Indigenous law.
Sierra Club BC welcomes and applauds today’s announcement. The provincial government was elected on a promise to use every tool available to stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline and the threat of a seven-fold increase in bitumen tankers on our coast. Today’s announcement is a serious and considered first step to fulfilling that promise.
Sierra Club BC applauds the government for following through on its commitment to refer Site C to the BC Utilities Commission.
