FortisBC wants to expand its Tilbury LNG plant along a fragile part of the Fraser River, in Delta, British Columbia.
Most people across B.C. probably haven’t even heard of Tilbury LNG – but if this fracked gas project gets approved, it will threaten one of the most important salmon runs on the West Coast, lead to more fracking in northeastern B.C., and emit as much pollution as the entire city of Vancouver.
As part of its Tilbury LNG expansion plans, FortisBC first needs to build a new tanker dock that would facilitate the transport of LNG around the world. We can still stop Tilbury from being built – but to do that, we must prove to the B.C. government that this project would be disastrous for the climate and is not in the public interest. And that’s where you come in.
Will you email Environment Minister George Heyman and other key decision-makers, and urge them to deny permits for Tilbury LNG?
Your letter will be sent to George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, Rob Fleming, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Kelly Greene, MLA for Richmond-Steveston and Parliamentary Secretary for Environment, and David Eby, Premier Elect.
