Campaign Actions

  • 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.

    As images of reindeer and snowy evergreens appear as part of our seasonal celebrations, it’s time to care for the reindeer cousins right here in Manitoba – the woodland caribou.

    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.

  • Join us in demanding that BC’s Premier protect our vital fresh water resources and the global climate by putting the brakes on fracking in BC!

    The Manitoba government is asking for public input on a new Management Plan for Nopiming Provincial Park. This is welcome news, and it means that Manitobans get to choose what kind of park they want. Should mine companies bulldoze the forest? Should the military cut down trees at will? Should wakeboard competitions be held on wilderness lakes in the park? Manitobans can have their say to help keep our park natural and wild.
