Tar Sands in Burnaby’s Backyard

Posted by admin on Jul 21st, 2008

A free public forum & discussion on Thursday, July 31st @ 6:30 pm. McGill Branch – Burnaby Public Library. 4595 Albert St., Burnaby. (1 Block north of Hastings, near Willingdon). Program Room

Join us for a presentation and discussion about how existing and proposed Burnaby infrastructure  is supporting current and future tar-sands production.  While many people in British Columbia are becoming aware of the tar-sands (or “Oil Sands”) development in Alberta, few people are aware of how projects in BC support this environmentally devastating industrial project. 

The city of Burnaby is home to several of these projects, an alarming fact for a city that has had a disastrous pipeline rupture and a residents’ campaign to prevent the expansion of the Chevron Refinery. Come find  out more about the Tar-sands, the BC infrastructure, policies and local companies are involved in the Tar-Sands development and what you can do to stop it. For more information please contact the Tar Sands Free BC Campaign: email – tarsandsfreebc at gmail.com  or call – 778 552 2099
