Howe Sound is only now recovering from decades of industrial pollution, and we have spent millions of tax-payer dollars cleaning up these toxic legacies from industry. We’re seeing the herring return, and the whales and dolphins are following them after 50 years away from Howe Sound. However, Howe Sound is yet again under threat with the Federally and Provincially approved Woodfibre LNG Export Facility planned to operate as of 2020 just 7km away from Squamish and directly across from the community called Britannia Beach.
CAMPAIGN 1 - Protect Howe Sound
Howe Sound is world renowned for its wild natural beauty, recreational opportunities, and the vibrant communities we call home. We value intact ecosystems that sustain and support our communities, our livelihoods, and our diverse local economies. This campaign aims to raise awareness about the importance of Howe Sound, and to generate a movement of people motivated to protect it.
CAMPAIGN 2 - Stop Woodfibre LNG
This campaign aims to continue to share strong narratives on the lack of safety regulations for LNG tanker traffic, the impact of the proposed seawater cooling system on the recovering Howe Sound ecosystem, and the company's history of cutting costs at the expense of safety and the environment.
CAMPAIGN 3 - Stop FortisBC Compressor Station
FortisBC has relocated their proposed compressor station to a new site on Mt Mulligan that threatens the safety and quality of life of nearby residents. This campaign aims to support concerned residents and provide them with the tools and skills they need to mobilize and take direct action to build public pressure on FortisBC to find another site for the compressor station.
