WWF Canada predicts the ‘Inevitable News’ of a BC coast oil spill

• October 19, 2012

 

A new campaign from WWF is based around a newscast predicting the ‘news before it happens’. In this case, what will inevitably happen to British Columbia’s beautiful Pacific coast should the Northern Gateway Tar Sands pipeline be approved.

As WWF  Canada said in their blog post announcing the campaign

In 2006, Canadian governments forged an historic agreement with First Nations, industry, and other groups to set out a global model of sustainability designed to create jobs, attract investment, and strengthen communities while protecting ecosystems. All of this is now at stake, and we believe this raises important questions about the kind Canada we want.

We are adamant that any pipeline in this region is far too big a risk for local communities, the rare ecosystem, and for Canada as a whole. So while the Inevitable News is not real, the campaign gives us a chance to act. We hope you support it, talk about it, tweet about it, and follow the Joint Review Panel process. What is being proposed is unacceptable. It does not have to be inevitable.
