Trudeau introduced the tanker ban bill. But now the oil industry is pushing back...
Last month, Prime Minister Trudeau introduced a bill banning crude oil tankers on B.C.'s North Coast. It's not perfect, but it's a big step towards protecting our coast, watersheds and wild salmon from the threat of oil spills.
Now, Big Oil is pushing back. They're worried the tanker ban will thwart their plans for future oil pipelines and oil ports in northern B.C.
We need your voice. Join us in contacting Prime Minister Trudeau and letting him know you support his new legislation. Urge him to stay strong in protecting the ecology, communities and economies of our region.
