A public forum & discussion…
THE TAR SANDS IN BURNABY’S BACKYARD?
Thursday, July 31st @ 6:30 pm
McGill Branch – Burnaby Public Library
4595 Albert St., Burnaby
(1 Block north of Hastings, near Willingdon) Program Room
(This is a free event)
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.
