Have your say on Enbridge tankers and pipeline
What do you think about Enbridge’s proposed tankers/pipeline project?
Please join a neighbourhood letter-writing party this summer, hosted by Sierra Club BC at one of the participating Victoria cafes. Drop by, have a cuppa, learn more about Enbridge’s proposal, and let the government know what you think!
In the Lower Mainland, toss a Frisbee with the local group for an Ultimate experience. Then relax in the shade and pen a letter to the Enbridge review panel.
Your letter makes a difference. When you write an official letter of comment, the provincial/federal Joint Review Panel is obligated to read and consider your letter when deciding whether Northern Gateway is in Canada’s interest. It will also go on the public record where other Canadians making up their minds can read it.
Although the federal government stripped the Joint Review Panel of decision-making authority, it remains an important forum for British Columbians to speak up against Enbridge's proposed tankers and pipeline project.
Letter-writing party schedule:
- Fernwood - Cornerstone Cafe – Thursday, August 9, 7-9 pm
- Quadra Village - Cafe Fantastico - Thursday, August 16, 7-9 pm
- Downtown lunch-time: Solstice Cafe - Wednesday, August 22, 11 am - 1 pm
- Vic West - Spiral Cafe - Friday, August 24, 7-9 pm
- John Lawson Park, Argyle Avenue (at 16th Street), August 20. Drop by any time between 3 pm and 7 pm. Bring your Frisbee!
Our most heartfelt thanks to the participating cafes for providing the location and offering local, organic and fairly-traded goodies!
Bring a friend, neighbour or co-worker. We will provide pens, paper and reference materials.
You can also submit your comment directly on the Joint Review Panel's website, or send your own letter, and copy it to Enbridge. The Joint Review Panel is accepting written comments until August 31, 11 am Pacific Time. Submit your written comment.
Citizens who have registered to speak to the panel are required to select their time slot by September 30. Hearings in Vancouver and Victoria are scheduled for January and February 2013.
