LNG, Fracking, and the Comox Valley Connection

WHAT:

Come out and learn more about Fracking for LNG and its impact on northern BC and the First Nations who live there. As well as the natural gas we burn, there’s a local connection with the Kwispaa LNG project proposed for Barkley Sound on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

The proposed gas transport pipeline to the facility would travel from the Chetwynd area to Williams Lake, southwest to Powell River, across the Strait of Georgia to the Island and land around Courtenay/Comox. It would then cross the Island to the Kwispaa LNG site at Sarita Bay.

This forum is open to all interested community members, first come first serve (i.e. no ticketing), and is brought to you by the Watershed Sentinel magazine in partnership with the Council of Canadians Comox Valley chapter and the Glasswaters Foundation.

Featuring four speakers and a question period:

· Keith Wytton from the Barkley Sound Alliance on Kwispaa, the massive LNG project proposal in Barkley Sound which plans to run its pipeline through Comox

· Richard Wright, Wilps Luutkudziiwus Spokesperson from Madii Lii Center in Gitxsan territory in Northern BC

· Michael Sawyer, environmental consultant who successfully appealed a decision of the NEB with respect to the Prince Rupert LNG pipeline and is now appealing the Coastal GasLink

· Damien Gillis, journalist and photographer, on the impact of fracking on land and water
