Should Vopak Pacific Canada Oil on Rail Proposal Be Exempt From an EA? Have Your Say!

Vopak Pacific Canada is proposing to ship diesel and other fuels through the northwest rail corridor for export in Prince Rupert. They are lobbying the government to avoid undertaking an Environmental Assessment. 

This project would bring serious risks to public safety and the environment. Until October 9th local communities have an opportunity to provide input whether they think this is a good idea or not?

You can provide comments to BC government through this link at the BC Environmental Assessment Office by clicking this link. 



From the Responsible Development Initiative.

Here is the latest installment from our responsible development initiative featuring innovative, sustainable economic opportunities throughout the Northwest. 

Lake Drive Lumber takes old trees that would otherwise be burnt or disposed of and turns them into amazing works of art and furniture. 

Utilizing local timbers and creating value added products, Lake Drive Lumber is a model for local economic development. Watch the video below or follow this link to see what Bruce, Leanne and the crew is up to!
