Digby Island LNG Opponents hosting evening of music Saturday

While the clock on the comment period for the Pacific NorthWest LNG project counts down to the final day for comment on March 11, those with concerns about another proposed LNG project in the region are looking to increase awareness of their opposition, with the Friends of Digby Island using music to share their message this weekend.

This Saturday the group is presenting Vancouver Folk singer Luke Wallace at Harbour Theatre's Tom Rooney Playhouse on Third Avenue, with special guests Prince Rupert's own Frances and Sarah.

The show goes from 8 to 10:30 PM with tickets available at the door or at the Argosy for 10 dollars. The evening is co-sponsored by the Prince Rupert Environmental Society.

Mr. Walker has been working with Indigenous communities, conservation groups and grassroots organizations over the last two years on a range of environmental issues.

The Friends of Digby Island have expressed a number of concerns related to proposed Aurora LNG Terminal that is under consideration for the southern end of Digby Island, that project is still in the early investigative phases.  Aurora most recently held an Open house on the proposed development back in December.

You can find more information on that project from our archive page here.

The Friends of Digby Island have created a Facebook page that features updates on their efforts and shares information that they have on the proposed development
