Event Description

You’re invited to a panel discussion about tankers and pipelines and how we can preserve and protect our beautiful coast.

This will be a unique opportunity to talk with First Nations and environmental groups about what oil tankers on our coast will mean to us all.  There will be ten environmental groups with information tables as well as the panel, so people will have an opportunity to look at information from many sources. 

We hope people will come, learn, talk and discuss this important issue. 

It’s a free event and everyone is welcome.
