Our last chance to stop LNG construction in the Fraser River

Wilderness Committee r1 Proponent’s climate claims not backed by evidence. For over a decade, proponents of liquefied natural gas (LNG) have made the same tired claim: that it will replace coal in Asia and, therefore, be beneficial for the global climate. We’ve poked more holes in this argument than a woodpecker does in a lifetime, but it just won’t die. ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ­­ View in Browser

Write Minister Guilbeault now!

Hi Paov,

For years, we’ve been working with residents of Delta and Richmond to oppose the Tilbury LNG facility in the middle of the neighbouring Fraser River. Despite hundreds of local residents raising their voices to oppose the destruction of salmon habitat and the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure, the provincial government approved the project in... March.

But we can still stop it. Federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change Steven Guilbeault has yet to make a decision. Can you ask him to do the right thing?

WRITE MY LETTER Rally to stop Tilbury LNG outside MLA Kelly Greene's office

Tilbury LNG would require pile driving, dredging and concrete scour mats at the bottom of the most important salmon river on Earth — the Fraser River — to build a dock and jetty for tankers to load the gas.

Less fish and more tanker traffic through the Salish Sea would hurt endangered southern resident killer whales. Meanwhile, the facility will increase fracked gas exports and push provincial, federal and global climate commitments further out of reach.

Only Minister Guilbeault can stop the marine jetty now. He’s a former head of an environmental group and no fan of liquefied natural gas. If he hears from enough of us, it could empower him to break ranks with the province and reject it. We need you to send him a message now.


Even if the federal government makes the wrong call, there’s still the expansion of Tilbury LNG on land, which is working its way through the review process now. But if we can stop the marine jetty, FortisBC’s entire plan becomes moot. Thanks for raising your voice at this critical time.

For the climate,

Peter McCartney
