Stall Riverview development until election

If you live in or near Tri-cities get involved now before its too late. The BC Liberals want to get development approval for Riverview before the next election, so they can pay-off their developer friends.

Take some time this weekend to walk around the park-like Riverview grounds and try to attend the public meetings next week:

"The first public open house sessions to elicit feedback on heritage importance at Riverview are slated for next week: Tuesday, May 22 from 4 to 8 p.m. at The Outlet in Port Coquitlam, and Wednesday, May 23 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Executive Plaza Hotel in Coquitlam."

Dangers of the Northern Gateway Pipeline

 

    We live in a world of what ifs. However, some what ifs demand serious attention. 

     What if the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline is built? What if it leaks or spills oil, which has happened to Enbridge pipelines. Let’s assume that the proposal jumps through the hoops and Enbridge builds the twin pipelines to bring tar-sands oil to the harbour at Kitimat, British Columbia. 

     What then?

Northern Gateway Pipeline - Enpipe project

 

    Words of power. The power of words. The power of poetry. The Enpipe Line is a collection of poetry, some 70,000 kilometres long, of resistance to the Northern Gateway Enbridge pipeline proposal, which will be 1,700 kilometres long. If built the pipeline will cut its way across Alberta and British Columbia so tarsands oil - the cruelist of oils -can be shipped overseas, so streams of pollution are unbroken.
