One Cowichan Statement on Enbridge Decision
“We join thousands of British Columbians in expressing our disappointment that our voices were not heard by the National Energy Board, and now pledge to exercise democracy more directly here at home.
One Cowichan will join with other organizations in laying the foundation for a possible HST-style citizens’ initiative to deny provincial permits to this project.
We have already begun recruiting neighbourhood captains and signature collectors in the two ridings of the Cowichan Valley and encourage interested citizens to be in touch.
Our coast is not for sale, and our children need us to make the switch to clean energy right away.”
Matt Price, Director, One Cowichan
