#EarthToParis This is a small piece of an incredible interview with Cam Hill, a community leader in the village of Hartley Bay, British Columbia. Canadian fossil fuels development pressures have proposed the Northern Gateway Pipeline project to export tar sands bitumen from Alberta to the world.
“Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline would cross more than 800 streams and rivers, including sensitive salmon spawning habitat in the upper Fraser, Skeena, and Kitimat watersheds. It would also bring more than 225 oil tankers, including supertankers, to B.C.’s North Coast for the first time ever. Here, an oil tanker spill would damage the famous Great Bear Rainforest, home to the iconic Spirit Bear.” And home to Cam Hill and the Gitga’at Nation.
This is one of the many clear examples we found and documented on ATripSouth that pulling more fossil fuels out of the ground is the opposite direction that we should be going right now. #EarthToParis for solutions to climate change!
