Vancouver LNG Pipedreams: Fracked Futures and Community Resistance

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 - 23:00 to Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 01:00

LNG

Are you concerned about the impacts of fracking and liquefied fracked gas (also know as liquefied natural gas or LNG) exports? Please join us for a night of powerful speakers from the front lines of community resistance to fracking, pipelines and LNG.

May 21-23, the B.C. government and Big Oil will be converging on Vancouver for a large LNG summit. As they try to push forward their destructive fossil fuel agenda and LNG pipe dreams, there is growing opposition from communities across the province as the true impacts of fracking and LNG come to light.

Why put communities and climate at risk, and threaten B.C.'s drinking water, rivers and ocean, wild salmon, air quality, farmlands and wilderness areas for a dangerous LNG pipe dream?

From the frackfields of northeastern B.C. and the many fracked gas pipelines and LNG terminals vying for approval in the northwest, to the proposed Woodfibre LNG project closer to home in Howe Sound, come learn more about the true impacts of extracting and exporting liquefied fracked gas.
