I was privileged to be a part of the production, as one of the video's producers and a board member of Tanker Free BC.
The campaign to draw attention to tanker traffic in Vancouver has recently heated up with the release of the "Oil Spills and Vancouver’s Stanley Park" report
by the Wilderness Committee and Tanker Free BC at the first in a series
of local town hall meetings. This video launch complements the growing
buzz surrounding this important issue.
The video asks viewers to consider the risks posed by the almost one million barrels of tar sands crude oil that would be passing Vancouver’s beaches daily if Kinder Morgan’s expansion plans are approved. Tanker Free BC Campaign Director Sven Biggs said “people all around the inlet are not only standing up to say, no, I’m not okay with that, they are ready to do something about it.”
