The Joint Review Panel has recommended approval of the Northern Gateway pipeline. But this is far from over. You can take action now to support First Nations, protect our coast, and move towards a carbon free future.
Please send a message of support to the 130 First Nations that stand against the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline. Let them know you stand with them in solidarity as part of an unbroken wall of opposition.
This message will also be sent to the Prime Minister and his Cabinet who now have the choice to side with Canadians or with Enbridge. The decision is in their hands. To move forward, they need First Nations cooperation and support from British Columbians, and they have neither.
The David Suzuki Foundation signed the Solidarity Accord for the Save the Fraser Declaration, agreeing with the Yinka Dene Alliance that we need to uphold indigenous laws and protect the health of British Columbia’s Fraser River watershed, including its headwaters.
And the vast majority agree. At community hearings across BC, the Joint Review Panel heard from 1,159 people who spoke against the pipeline. Only two spoke for it.
Remember, this isn’t the end of the discussion. Make your voice heard now.
