VOICE YOUR CONCERN
TO THREE MINISTERS
IN CHARGE OF THE PROBLEM
Local First Nations and coastal community groups are demanding Transport Canada, Environment Canada, and DFO (Dept of Fisheries and Oceans) put an end to this harmful spillover of commercial activity from the Port of Vancouver.
We have joined forces and become a member of the 'South Coast Ship Watch Alliance', a coalition of community groups in the Southern Gulf Islands and adjacent Vancouver Island opposing anchorages for large sea-going vessels.
Join other Salt Spring Islanders supporting the coalition's ongoing campaign. Over 800 letters have already been sent to the three ministers in charge of the problem.
Our goal is to reach 1000 letters before the elections - an important time for government to listen.
It only takes a couple of minutes at the website to send the letter. If you have more time, you can customize the letter.
Please alert 1-3 people in other parts of BC and Canada who care about the Gulf Islands to join sending a letter. Widening the campaign to get support from elsewhere is an important indicator for the government that this problem cannot be contained and hidden from public opinion.
The letters can be sent by following this link:
Thank you for your support!
If you have any questions, or if you receive responses from officials you would like to share with us, please contact us.
Get the ball rolling.
