Barging US Coal in the Salish Sea
No prior assessment of potential impacts, and no plans for ongoing monitoring. Who is looking out for our inland sea?
Fraser Surrey Docks Fire Safety Plan: failing grade
A cut and paste of internet sources that downplays the potential for spontaneous combustion.
Our position on Met and Thermal Coal
One could be crucial in the transition to a low carbon future; the other has to go as soon as possible.
What are the long term plans for FS Docks?

Carbon Tax Campaign
"The carbon tax is here to stay." Now let's make it better!
Send Ottawa a postcard and help save Canada's Clean Air and Climate Change Act!
Our MP's have worked hard over the last few months to hammer out a new piece of legislation in the fight against climate change.

Unfortunately, unless the Conservative government brings the bill back before the House for a vote, it will die on the order paper
Climate Change Valentines
VTACC developed a do-it-yourself Valentines Campaign kit in which we subtly modified classic Valentines to send a call for action on climate change. Each kit contained cards addressed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Environment Minister John Baird, and Liberal leader Stéphane Dion and, of course, a card that could be addressed to any MP, to ensure that everyone on Parliament Hill was included!
Kits Beach Rally: "No Coal For Christmas!"

The BC government's decision to build two new coal fired power generating plants was the last straw, and provided the catalyst for us to form VTACC: Voters Taking Action Against Climate Change.
