Save Howe Sound!

August 29, 2016

A large scale gravel mine continues to press forward at McNab Creek, smack in the middle of the Sound. The PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD is now on until October 3rd, 2016. Help make sure decision makers understand the serious issues at stake.

In this issue: Saving Howe Sound's Estuary at McNab; Woodfibre LNG Update; District of West Van to Host Fall Howe Sound Community Forum; Spring 2016 Howe Sound Community Forum at Camp Fircom; Exploring UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Status; Proposed Burnco Gravel Mine Update

Final investment decision by the owners of the proposed Woodfibre LNG project is still pending.

Together with BC Spaces we have formed a committee to move the possibility of achieving UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status forward.

45 Day public consultation begins August 15th for the proposed Burnco Aggregate Mine that will ruin beautiful McNab Valley and this part of Howe Sound.

The Fall meeting of the Howe Sound Community Forum members will take place on October 14th at the Gleneagles Community Center.

At a time when climate change threatens our future and so much value is attributed to these estuaries, it begs the question of planners and our leaders why they would mess with our estuaries.

It was a rare chance for the local government leaders who make up the Howe Sound Community Forum to meet in the middle.

On April 29, 2016, 80 elected officials, First Nations, government staff and NGO representatives travelled by water taxis departing from Horseshoe Bay, Bowen Island, Lions Bay and Langdale for a day at Camp Fircom on Gambier Island.
