PenderPOD are activists who protest to save the environment
Several B.C. First Nations are in the Federal Court of Appeal court this week to argue against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.
Scott Smith, a lawyer for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation said that Canada “altered” scientific reviews of oil spill research and “suppressed” information until after consultations over the Trans Mountain pipeline were over. He argued that Canada had failed again in its duty to consult in a meaningful way, in part by intentionally withholding information associated with the Tsleil-Waututh’s concerns about the pipeline expansion project.
I was thinking about how busy the Salish Sea is with so many wonderful forms of life.
Protect Wild Fish
Tell decision makers to stop wasting money on failed plans and invest in science-based solutions to save endangered wild salmon and orcas:
and remove dams.
Artifishal is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.
A major gap in government regulation and oversight is allowing giant international cargo ships to anchor as long as they want in the “protected” waters of the Southern Gulf Islands and Cowichan Bay.
Negative Impacts include:
Anchor chains scouring the ocean floor, destroying marine habitat
Diesel generators run 24/7 causing air, noise and light pollution
Acoustic Interference and collision risk to Resident Killer Whales
Risk of grounding or collisions causing catastrophic fuel spills
But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Local First Nations and coastal community groups are demanding Transport Canada put an end to this harmful spillover of commercial activity from the Port of Vancouver.
