Public Meetings: Offshore Drilling: Worth the Risk?    Thu Mar 22, 2018, Lunenburg & Halifax, NS

BP, the company responsible for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, plans to start exploratory drilling in offshore Nova Scotia this spring. This operation was recently approved by Environment Canada, just before the federal government introduced legislation to download environmental assessment responsibilities to the industry-packed offshore petroleum boards.

This spells trouble for Nova Scotia’s coastal communities, fisheries, tourism, and climate.

The Council of Canadians and friends are hosting town hall events in Halifax, Lunenburg, and Shelburne to share information about BP’s plans, and to mobilize in defense of our coasts and communities.

Speakers:
• Antonia Juhasz, author of Black Tide: the Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill.
• Colin Sproul, fifth generation lobster fisherman and spokesperson for Bay of Fundy Inshore Fishermen's Association
• Local and indigenous speakers as well.

Events:

• Halifax: March 20, SMU Scotiabank Auditorium, 923 Robie Street

• Shelburne: March 21, Shelburne Regional High School, 415 Woodlawn Drive

• Lunenburg: March 22, FIre Hall, 25 Medway Street

Please join us, and invite your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues to come out too!
