Event description
Everything you didn't want to know about Woodfibre LNG and how it will impact Howe Sound communities.

About this Event

Join us as Tracey Saxby and Eoin Finn share more than five years of research about how Woodfibre LNG and the associated 24-inch high pressure FortisBC pipeline will increase fracking and lock us into 25-40 years of extreme carbon pollution.

Learn how these projects will impact the health and safety of our communities, put Howe Sound residents at risk, and threaten the recovery of Howe Sound’s ecosystems and wildlife.

Then find out how you can help to stop them.
