Tell Minister of Environment and Climate Change Jonathan Wilkinson to protect wild salmon and endangered orcas.
According to a recent report1, the Terminal 2 Project (T2), located at the mouth of British Columbia’s Fraser River, will have significant adverse effects on Chinook salmon and significant adverse and cumulative effects on Southern Resident killer whales.
If built, T2 will disrupt Chinook migration patterns and force young salmon into the open ocean before they are big and strong enough to survive there. Chinook are also the main food source for endangered Southern Resident killer whales. Just 72 of these whales remain, and those that do already suffer from chronic lack of food.
Now, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Jonathan Wilkinson has a decision to make: Approve T2 despite the risks, or acknowledge the project will have significant adverse environmental effects and pass the decision on to Cabinet.
We say, the choice is clear.
