Stop the Expansion of Coal Exports from British Columbia's Ports
- by: Dogwood
- target: The governments of Canada and British Columbia and the Ministers of Trade and Transport
Coal is a toxic product. Its mining, transport and combustion create grave risks to human health, to quality of life in communities surrounding mines, rail lines, port facilities and power plants, and to the global climate.
That's why an ever-growing number of residents, neighbourhood groups, non-profit organizations and municipal governments are standing up against coal expansion in B.C.
Please join us to call upon Ministries, Parliament and the Legislature to stand up and use their authority to:
- Prevent further expansion of U.S. thermal coal exports in B.C.;
- Require independent health and environmental impact assessments before considering new coal shipping projects and;
- Ensure British Columbians have a say over export activities that affect their families and communities.

To Whom it May Concern:
We the signatories draw your attention to proposals to expand British Columbia's coal export capacity to serve foreign markets. We are especially opposed to exporting U.S. thermal coal, which American west coast communities have rejected.
