Write Wild: Protect Dodge Cove from Aurora LNG

The BC Environmental Assessment Office (BCEAO) is asking for final public comment on Aurora LNG’s proposal until March 9. This project would be the province’s most polluting liquefied natural gas plant yet. Now is your chance to tell the regulator that this project should not proceed.

Use the form below to write a letter to the BCEAO, Premier Christy Clark, Minister of Environment Mary Polak, Minister of Natural Gas Development Rich Coleman. Tell them Aurora LNG must be stopped!

WHEN SUBMITTING YOUR PERSONALIZED COMMENTS, PLEASE KEEP THEM RESPECTFUL AND COMPLETE THE FIELDS TO INCLUDE YOUR FULL NAME AND CITY OF RESIDENCE

Please use these points to consider when drafting your letter to the Environmental Assessment Office:

  • Putting a facility like this right next to the historic community of Dodge Cove will massively disrupt the lives of its residents.

  • Aurora LNG violates international siting standards which require such projects to be located away from population centres and other marine traffic. 

  • Noise from the tankers and facility would have a significant adverse impact on the harbour porpoise, a species of special concern in British Columbia.

  • Digby Island lies in a Nationally Significant Important Bird Area, and great blue herons have a nesting colony on the island.

  • This facility and upstream development would produce 15 megatonnes of carbon pollution every year, while the gas shipped to Asia would release another 69 MT.

  • Aurora LNG would make it impossible for BC to meet its legislated climate targets and is at odds with both national and international efforts to reduce emissions.

  • Please do not allow this project to put our coast, our communities and our climate at risk!
