Indigenous nations unite for preservation of the Salish Sea

546 First Nations Press Conference

 

The Lummi Nation is calling for moratorium on any additional potential stressors, including additional marine vessel traffic to the Salish Sea until an environmental impact study can be completed. Other Indigenous groups in Canada and the United States, like the Tsleil-Waututh Nation in BC and the Tulalip Tribes in Washington, are supporting the call for more investigation into the environmental impacts before any new container traffic is allowed. The proposed construction of a new container terminal at Roberts Bank is currently undergoing an impartial review by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency since November 2013.
