Stop Woodfibre LNG

Sunshine Coast Conservation Association is excited to announce that we've partnered up with My Sea to Sky Society to challenge project approvals for the Woodfibre LNG Project.

We currently have two legal actions underway.

1. Standing up for species at risk

Earlier this year, Minister Guilbeault amended the 2018 Federal Decision Statement to allow Woodfibre LNG to reduce the monitoring area for seals and sea lions by a shocking 98%. This is likely to cause grave harm to endangered sea lions in Átl'ka7tsem Howe Sound.

We're filing for a judicial review to challenge this decision. This will be precedent-setting litigation.

2. Stopping toxic water pollution

The BC Energy Regulator has issued a "temporary" permit to allow FortisBC to discharge effluent into the Squamish River for 15 months to "enable construction timelines" for FortisBC's tunnel.

This effectively avoids public scrutiny and oversight.

We're filing a Notice of Appeal via the Environmental Appeal Board for British Columbia to cancel this permit.

To win these cases, we need to raise $100,000

We need to raise $100,000 to pay for legal fees, expert peer review, access to information, and dedicated staff time to support this legal challenge.

We have a moral imperative to challenge these flawed approvals.
