We don't need to choose environment over economy or vice versa. We’ve been very successful at both. Nowadays it's all about economy + environment. Here's why I decided it was time to speak out.
Tell Minister McKenna to approve the Pacific NorthWest LNG terminal!
On February 10th, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) released a draft report for the Pacific Northwest LNG terminal.
The report was clear: "the Agency concludes that the Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects taking into account the implementation of the key mitigation measures."
It's time for Canada's leaders to act.
First Nations and grassroots activists keep saying YES to this proposal, and it is time for the government in Ottawa to show it is listening.
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION BELOW
892 individuals responded to this call to action. Please feel free to add your signature and we'll let you know next time there are important developments in LNG.
We have until March 11 to provide public comment on the project. On that date, we will be sending THIS LETTER to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna in Ottawa.
It is up to Minister McKenna to approve or reject the LNG terminal.
Join us in showing Minister McKenna your concern for the economy and the environment, First Nations, and the climate impacts of this project!
Let’s make it impossible to reject a project that Federal Scientists say is acceptable and that will create a long legacy of prosperity.
