This past Saturday approximately 200 paddlers took to the water in the Saanich Inlet to let Steelhead LNG know there is strong opposition to their Malahat LNG proposal and that the community wants to keep the inlet LNG Free!

Thank you to all the paddlers that answered our call! It was an amazing afternoon! It is very likely there will be another "Paddle" planned for the near future!

Paddlers had an incredible welcome from W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations leaders and then headed out on the water to build the local community and enjoy the Saanich Inlet.

The Saanich Peninsula First Nations are promising a battle on the land, the sea and in the courtroom if Steelhead LNG plans to go ahead with a liquefied natural gas plant on the former Bamberton development lands.

Standing on Tsartlip First Nation land looking across Saanich Inlet at the site of the former cement factory where Steelhead envisions its project, the chiefs of the Saanich Peninsula nations — Tsartlip, Tsawout, Tseycum and Pauquachin, known collectively as WSANEC — made it clear they are united in opposition.

“We wanted to make a strong impact statement to make sure our statement is heard ... we are making it well known that we oppose LNG in our territory,” said Chief Rebecca David of the Pauquachin First Nation. “The decisions and choices we make today affect the next seven generations. We are trying to protect the water and the lands of our future children.”

David said opposition to the project seems to have fallen on deaf ears at the Steelhead offices.

Monday April 18th from 12pm - 1pm
827 Fort Street, Victoria
Outside DND Recruitment Centre

Organized by the Canadian Voice of Women for Peace and theInternational Peace Bureau

The Canadian government spends over $23.6 billion on the Department of National Defence and $9.8 billion on Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness but only $1.5 billion on Environment Canada, of which only $172 million is planned to be spent on "Climate Change and Clean Air" for the 2015, 2016 & 2017 budget periods.  Canada is the 6th highest spender on the military among NATO countries and is the 16th highest worldwide. 

 

We cannot tackle the climate crisis and end poverty in our country, if we continue to waste our precious tax dollars on war and weapons. Let’s move the money from militarism to sustainability!
