YES! I want to stop the expansion of U.S. thermal coal exports through British Columbia.
Fraser Surrey Docks wants to ship up to eight million tonnes a year of U.S. thermal coal to power plants in China. For the sake of our communities and the climate, we have to stop them.
Why are American coal companies using B.C. as a back door to China? Because citizens in Oregon and Washington have shut down five coal export terminals in a row. Together we can make Fraser Surrey Docks number six.
Coal trains leave a trail of toxic dust and climate destruction, in return for scant economic benefits. But federal port authorities are chomping at the bit to expand coal exports, while provincial politicians are giving them a free pass on health and environmental assessments. It’s time for citizens to take charge.
