Save Our BC Coast from Oil Spills sign now

We the undersigned are deeply concerned about the risk of oil spills in B.C.s waters.

The British Columbia coast is known for its diverse and fragile ecosystem, as well as its rough unpredictable waters. It is home to a diverse and delicate marine ecosystem including more than 120 species of sea birds, 27 species of marine mammals, and important salmon, halibut and other fish stocks.

It is one of our most valuable resources and it is coming under threat by proposals for major Oil & Gas projects including pipelines, tanker traffic and offshore drilling.

The proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline would carry oil 1,170 km from the Alberta Tar sands to the coast of Kitimat BC. It is a well known fact that in 2002 Enbridge Pipelines reported 67 spills resulting in over 6,000 barrels being released.

The Enbridge project would also bring more than 225 super-tankers to our coasts every year, each equivalent to the size of the Empire State building. With a capacity of up to 350 million litres, these tankers create a serious threat of crude oil spills in our oceans.

Further, it is deeply concerning that the BC government is lobbying for the removal of the federal moratorium that was put into place in 1972 on offshore oil & gas drilling on the Canadian west coast.

The world has seen that even with the most up to date technology, accidents still occur with devastating consequences.

We request that the Canadian government immediately turn the federal moratorium on west coast offshore oil & gas drilling and crude oil tanker traffic into law.
