We call on the Government of Canada to accept the longstanding moratorium against oil tankers on the coast of British Columbia, recognize the unacceptable risks that the Northern Gateway pipeline would pose to fragile river and coastal environments along the proposed route, refrain from interfering in and prejudicing the Environmental Assessment process, and respect First Nations’ constitutionally enshrined rights and indigenous title by removing governmental support for the Northern Gateway Pipeline.
