DFO: Shut down pipeline work in the Clore River

Coastal GasLink’s dams have failed on a tributary of the Skeena River, flooding a pipeline work site and dumping mud into salmon and steelhead spawning habitat.

Provincial regulators have lost control of the project. Federal fishery officers need to shut down pipeline work in the Clore River – and stop the company from doing any more damage.

Wet’suwet’en officials flew in by helicopter for the second time in a month. Again they found Coastal GasLink running heavy machinery in the river with no sediment barrier. The river banks downstream were stained black with dirt.

Sediment smothers fish eggs. That’s why it’s a federal offence to release sediment in salmon spawning habitat. DFO Minister Murray must act now to enforce the law.

Tell Fisheries Minister Joyce Murray: shut down pipeline work in the Clore River!
