Howe Sound is magical. Everyone that lives along its shores has been drawn here by its wild natural beauty, recreational opportunities, and the vibrant communities we call home. However, Howe Sound is under threat from Woodfibre LNG, which proposes to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility on the previous Woodfibre Pulp and Paper Mill site located approximately 7 km west-southwest of Squamish.
The Woodfibre LNG project will increase local air pollution, and underwater noise and light pollution will affect salmon migration routes and marine mammals. LNG tanker traffic puts Howe Sound residents at risk, and the potential conflict between recreational sailors and LNG tankers has not been adequately addressed.
My Sea to Sky is aiming to double the number of signatures they have on the Howe Sound Declaration by March 31st, so they can make Woodfibre LNG a provincial election issue. Please sign, and ask your friends to sign the Howe Sound Declaration too. www.myseatosky.org/declaration
