West Coast hits the streets with our Street Legal team!
West Coast Environmental Law lawyers and volunteers took advantage of the sunny weather this week and held the first-ever Street Legal training session outside in the park near our office. These dedicated volunteers will be out and about at a number of Vancouver community events, talking with people about pressing environmental challenges that British Columbia and Canada are facing and what West Coast is doing to protect the environment through the law, on important issues such as:
- The attacks on Canada’s environmental laws through the recently passed Bill C-38. We’ll be informing people how they can be involved such as taking action by signing the Save Canada’s Environmental Laws petition. If you don’t get the chance to sign the petition in person, you can sign the online version of the petition!
- Keeping BC’s rivers and coast free from the threat of oil spills, currently posed by the Enbridge’s proposed northern pipeline and tankers project as well as the equally threatening expansion of the Kinder Morgan Transmountain pipeline.
