December 6: Craft beer + Craft food + Good people + Good Cause = Good times!
Sierra Club BC traveled to Ottawa this week to present to the Transport Committee about Bill C-48, the Oil Tanker Moratorium Act for BC’s north coast. We commended the government for the ban - and suggested ways that it could be strengthened further.
Sierra Club BC is horrified and disgusted by the outrageous bullying tactics employed by Enbridge today, and condemns the company in the strongest possible terms.
At the forefront of the fight against Kinder Morgan are Indigenous peoples standing up to this corporate bully on land, in the water, and in the court room. Join Sierra Club BC for nine days of solidarity with First Nations fighting Kinder Morgan in court.
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.
