Save Our Sound Rendezvous - Calling all Mariners.  June 30th rendezvous at McNab Creek

Business in Vancouver reporter presents two points of view regarding the proposed Burnco gravel mine at McNab Creek.  It is assumed that gravel from the alluvial fan in the McNab Creek valley will be supplying the Metro Vancouver market and saving the environment!   What will this mean for other  gravel operations in the lower mainland and along the coast?

Sunshine Coast Regional District posts Draft Application for Information Requirements ahead of public consultation process.

On April 4, the SCRD’s infrastructure services committee voted to defer the Burnco application until after the environmental assessment for the project is completed.

Millions have been spent cleaning up the Sound after decades of industrial abuse. It’s paid off with a remarkable recovery. We should not allow this progress to be placed at risk. Find out more and SIGN our Petition
