Nathan Cullen opens up "Take Back our Coast" Northwest tour in Prince Rupert
As we outlined on the blog back in September, Mr. Cullen's bill would ban the transit of oil tankers carrying crude oil from North Coast waters, while at the same time the MP is calling for the development of an oil refinery to process the bitumen into refined product to be shipped from a North Coast terminal.
The outline to his proposed bill can be found from Mr. Cullen's website
The focus of Mr. Cullen's bill and the take back our coast campaign appears to be to keep the Enbridge Northern Gateway issue alive seeking to ensure that the controversial pipeline project doesn't move forward.
More on that can be found on Mr. Cullen's website page dedicated towards that theme.
Tonight's session is being held at the Nisga'a Hall on Third Avenue, with a start time of 7 PM.
Refreshments will be provided for those in attendance.
Background on Mr. Cullen's tour can be reviewed from his Facebook page dedicated to the the tour
