Think natural resources aren't the key to responsible prosperity for British Columbians? Think again.
We all depend on forestry, natural gas, mining, pipelines and ports. Without the natural resource economy, we'd be 54 per cent poorer.
A strong majority of residents recognize this and support good decisions. And they know we don't have to sacrifice the environment to have a strong economy.
A recent Ipsos Reid survey found that nearly three-quarters of British Columbians agree that “natural resource development is good for B.C.,” with only 16 per cent disagreeing. Further, seven-in-ten (71 per cent) see no conflict between a strong natural resource sector growing the green economy.
Despite this kind of support, there is a danger that the increasingly acrimonious and divisive debate over the development of major natural resource projects will result in political gridlock, with decision makers afraid to make decisions for fear of offending a vocal minority.
We have a simple request for those who have made up their minds to ignore the majority view:
We at Resource Works have been sharing our research to build awareness. But it's not enough. Now we must speak out in unison, or accept that saying NO to resource investment can only diminish our future prospects.
By working together, we can offer our children a bright future. Check out our information showing why the Think Again message is based on fact to build understanding.
Your voice counts.

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.
- to respect the demands by First Nations for pathways out of poverty
- to help developing nations adopt Natural Gas as a cleaner form of energy, saving millions of lives annually
to create responsible revenue sources so that Canada can continue to be a global beacon of peace, prosperity and good government
- Read the letter from this north west BC worker (pictured) reflecting on the pride she takes in applying world-leading regulations for natural gas extraction.
- Appreciate how these citizens are standing up for their right to jobs and prosperity in Canada through responsible use of clean natural gas.
- Take a look at these heartfelt pleas from residents of North West BC for a project that will inject prosperity into an area that has struggled for years to build its local sustainability.
- Get information about the transparent and responsible approaches taken today to Natural Gas development.
- Gas-fired power plants emit substantially less CO2 than the coal conversion technologies that now dominate energy production. Canada needs to show its compassion for the planet is genuine by getting its Natural Gas to global markets.
