The Prince Rupert Environmental Society has identified these main issues:
• Salmon farms- won! A moratorium is in place for the northcoast
• Oil Tankers – Fight is on! Pressure to lift northcoast oil tanker moratorium for:
-oil by rail terminal in Skeena Estuary (Prince Rupert Harbour)
-Enbridge oil tankers passing from Kitimat
-oil refinery and tankers from Lax Kw’alaams or elsewhere in northcoast
- “natural gas” pipeline to Rupert or Lax Kw’alaams to switch to oil
• Skeena Estuary- Fight is building momentum! Petronas/PNW LNG not welcome on Lelu Island alongside Flora Bank.
