    Only about a dozen spotted owls are left in the wild in southwest mainland BC (the only place they are found in Canada) because of extreme logging of their old-growth forest habitat.  Where once 500 pairs of owls thrived in these forests, now clearcuts, roads and power lines have tattered and fragmented the old forests to such an extent that the owls teeter on the brink of extinction in Canada.

  • Liquefied natural gas (LNG) has come to Metro Vancouver’s backyard, along the beautiful shores of Howe Sound. And right now, we have an opportunity to stand up and say NO.

    Woodfibre LNG is proposing the construction of a new gas liquefaction plant on the site of an old pulp mill near Squamish, BC. Major concerns have been raised over the project and its impacts on local air quality, water quality and the recovering ecosystem of Howe Sound.

  • Write a letter!

    Opposition to the proposed Kinder Morgan tar sands pipeline has exploded recently on Burnaby Mountain, after the company forced its way into a much-loved conservation area. When the City of Burnaby tried to prevent destructive testing by Kinder Morgan in the local park, they were told that their bylaws did not matter in this case. The citizens of Burnaby – and their recently re-elected mayor – have clearly shown that they’re committed to preventing the construction of this dangerous pipeline.

    So it’s no wonder that when Kinder Morgan attempted to impose itself on this local community, the company was met with a growing number of folks who were not prepared to simply get out of the way.
