My Sea to Sky announced it will hold a peaceful roadside protest along Highway 99 on Friday, May 16, to oppose the proposed LNG plant.
The protestors will gather at Shannon Falls at 8:30 a.m. for a peaceful protest as Premier Christy Clark comes to Squamish for the Sea to Sky Gondola grand opening, the group said.
The co-founder of the group, Tracey Saxby, said she is excited for the grand opening of the Sea to Sky Gondola which showcases that natural beauty of the town.
“We need to support this investment in tourism infrastructure to attract more potential investments like these,” she said.
Saxby said Friday’s demonstration brings together a growing number of concerned voices who have been straining to be heard.
“We also have concerns about how this proposed project would impact the new economy that is emerging in Squamish which includes the film industry, the rec tech industry, knowledge-based industry, and green small business champions.”
She said Woodfibre LNG does not make sense for Squamish or anywhere else for that matter.
“Certainly not from a climate change standpoint, and the upstream impact of fracking in northern BC is something all Canadians should be worried about,” she said.
