Oppose ALL new pipelines in BC

In the 2017 platform there is no statement on supporting or opposing all new pipelines in BC. The BC Greens need to join the Federal Green Party in opposing all pipelines in our province to ensure sustainability, ecological wisdom and protection to our wildlife.

    In the unfortunate event of a pipeline being approved, require a bond be posted to cover the cost of a worst case spill to protect the taxpayers and provide relief to those impacted by such a spill.

    Pipelines are a hot-button topic right now. As the Green Party’s lead on Energy policy, I find it morally wrong to be shipping greenhouse gases out of the province while making money doing this. This goes for pipelines as well as for thermal coal, which is being brought up from the US to be shipped out of our ports. It’s kind of a sick joke: BC’s version of “carbon sequestration” is just to ship the stuff over the international border and we can say: “No longer our problem”. The 2017 platform is “under construction” as I type this, we’re having lots of discussions, and I’m pretty sure your suggestion will be part of the picture.
