Please join Megan Leslie (NDP Deputy Leader, Official Opposition Critic for the Environment and MP for Halifax) and Nathan Cullen (NDP House Leader and MP for Skeena-Bulkley Valley) for a discussion about the environmental implications of the Enbridge pipeline project and how you can get involved.
Megan and Nathan will be joined by the following NDP BC Members of Parliament:
-Randall Garrison, MP for Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca and Official Opposition Critic on Public Safety & Official Opposition Critic on LGBTT -Fin Donnelly, MP for New Westminster-Coquitlam and Official Opposition Critic on Western Economic Diversification Canada
-Alex Atamanenko, MP for B.C. Southern Interior
-Denise Savoie, MP for Victoria and Deputy Speaker of the House
As many of you are aware, Enbridge is currently proposing the construction of a 1,172 km pipeline from Alberta to Kitimat, British Colombia. The resulting raw bitumen would then be transported along BC’s pristine North Coast in more than 220 super-tankers per year.
These coastal waters are home to a diverse and delicate marine ecosystem including more than 120 species of sea birds, 27 species of marine mammals, and important salmon, halibut and other fish stocks. The significant environmental impact of a potential spill cannot be understated.
Megan is travelling to Kitamaat Village on June 26th to observe the Joint Review Panel Public Hearing taking place on that day.
As this is an important issue throughout the province, we want to hear from you too!
