Return of the Inlet: We must say NO to the Trans Mountain Expansion Project
Tsleil-Waututh is working hard to restore the health of the Inlet to a state where we can once again harvest healthy, wild, marine food.
And after years of this restoration effort, in 2017 we conducted our first clam harvest in over 45 years.
Orcas too have returned to the Inlet for the first time in decades.
And herring eggs were recently seen on the banks for the first time since the 1880s.
This is the ecosystem returning.
Tsleil-Waututh supports sustainable development that allows present and future generations to thrive.
And this is why we must stop the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker project.
We have reviewed the project according to Tsleil-Waututh law, and have concluded that it puts our environment and our economy at risk.
Together we can restore Burrard Inlet and the Salish Sea for future generations.
