  • My name is _____ and I live in _____ (town/city). I’m calling to urge the BC government to speak out in support of Bill C-48, the federal Oil Tanker Moratorium Act.
  • I’m very glad BC’s government has promised to use every tool in its toolbox to reduce the risk of oil spills – and this needs to include the north coast. For decades, Coastal First Nations and people across BC have shown we strongly support a tanker ban in the Great Bear Rainforest.
  • Senators are under intense pressure from the oil industry to reject Bill C-48. If BC stays silent on Bill C-48, there’s a real threat the Bill will die and we won’t get the tanker ban.
  • That’s why I’m urging the BC government to make a submission to the Senate Committee supporting Bill C-48. Thank you.
