Forum brings together frontline community members from Squamish, Hazelton and Fort Nelson
VANCOUVER – From May 21-23, the B.C. government and the oil and gas industry will be converging on Vancouver for a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) summit. As they try to push forward their fracking and LNG pipe dreams on empty promises of jobs and economic prosperity for B.C., there is rising concern and opposition from communities across the province as the true impact and cost of the gas boom comes to light.
On Wednesday, May 21, the Council of Canadians and the Wilderness Committee will host a night of speakers from the front lines of community resistance to fracking, pipelines and LNG.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 21, 2014 | 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
WHERE: Room 1900, Simon Fraser University (SFU) Harbour Centre, 515 W. Hastings St, Vancouver
