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:

Stop hatcheries,

reduce harvest

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.

The Seventh Generation Principle is based on an ancient Iroquois philosophy that the decisions we make today should result in a sustainable 

world seven generations into the future.

In the name of patriotism and the flag, how much of our beloved land are you willing to desecrate?
List in the following spaces, the mountains, rivers, towns, farms you could most readily do without.

This is number four of Wendell Barry's poem: Questionaire
