My Sea To Sky

After decades of recovery efforts and millions in taxpayer dollars, the jewel in Vancouver’s backyard, Howe Sound, is coming back to life. The herring have returned, and with them, the salmon, dolphins, and whales. However, all of this is yet again under threat. Heavy industrial projects are proposed for Howe Sound, including Woodfibre LNG, its associated FortisBC pipeline and compressor station at Mt. Mulligan, and the Burnco gravel mine in the McNab Creek watershed.

David Suzuki

Canada’s best known environmentalist, David Suzuki, has a deep and personal connection to the Salish Sea. His urgent call to protect the people and places we love couldn’t be more timely.  We only have #OneNature. It’s time for a new relationship with the ocean and its wildlife if we hope to leave a natural legacy for future generations.
