Are you concerned about the impacts of fracking and liquified fracked gas (also know as liquefied natural gas or LNG) export? Join us for a night of powerful speakers from the frontlines of community resistance to fracking, pipelines, and LNG! 

From May 21-23rd, the BC government and big oil will be converging on Vancouver to hold a large LNG summit. As they try to push forward their destructive fossil fuel agenda , there is rising opposition from communities across the province as the true impacts of fracking and LNG comes to light. 

Why put communities and climate at risk, and threaten B.C.’s drinking water, rivers and ocean, wild salmon, air quality, farmlands and wilderness areas for a dangerous LNG pipe dream? 

From the frackfields of northeastern BC and the many fracked gas pipelines and LNG terminals vying for approval in the northwest, to the proposed Woodfibre LNG project closer to home in Howe Sound, come learn the true impacts of extracting and exporting Liquefied Fracked Gas (LFG).
