Announcement that Woodfibre LNG "is a go" is premature considering the many outstanding conditions and changes yet to be approved.

We look forward to co-creating the Howe Sound Biosphere Initiative with First Nations groups and engaging all stakeholders in achieving the objectives of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations vision for Biosphere Reserves as a model for sustainable development.

The study confirmed the Fixed Link options fail on the environmental scorecard. Studying more feasible ways to improve transportation safety, reliability and frequency without harming our environment must be a top priority for the benefit future generations.

Over 300 people attended the three public consultation open houses, over 600 comments were submitted, 96% against or expressing strong concerns.

On Friday October 14th, 2016 the rain and wind warnings didn’t deter the 76 people that made their way to the Gleneagles Golf Club House for the Howe Sound Community Forum hosted by the District of West Vancouver.
