‘No World-Class Spill Response Here’: Heiltsuk First Nation Pursues Lawsuit One Year After Tug Disaster

‘No World-Class Spill Response Here’: Heiltsuk First Nation Pursues Lawsuit One Year After Tug Disaster | The Peoples News | Scoop.it
Kelly Brown was awoken at 4:30 a.m. on October 13, 2016, by the kind of phone call nobody ever wants to receive: an environmental catastrophe was unfolding a 20-minute boat ride up the coast from his home in the community of Bella Bella. “I had to call this guy back because I wanted to make sure — because I’m half asleep — wanted to make sure that I heard him right, that there’s a tug that ran aground in our territory,” he recalls. Brown is the director of the Heiltsuk Integrated Resource Management department, the branch of the Heiltsuk government in charge of the environmental stewardship of the First Nation’s traditional territory.

Prevent Fracking Across Canada | Green Party of Canada

Prevent Fracking Across Canada | Green Party of Canada | The Peoples News | Scoop.it
The damaging practice of hydraulic fracturing, otherwise known as fracking, has been devastating for our natural environment, and harmful to communities throughout Canada. Despite a majority of Canadians being opposed to fracking, moratoria exist only in Québec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Yukon. 

Studies show that fracking contaminates drinking water, triggers earth tremors — with a 4.6 magnitude earthquake recorded in BC — and leads to rising carbon pollution through the emission of highly potent methane gas. 

Join us in preventing any future fracking in Canada by demanding that a national moratorium be immediately put into place. Sign our petition expressing your views on this highly destructive practice. Let’s put fracking behind us, and fully embrace clean, sustainable and innovative opportunities towards a brighter future.
