Uncovered coal trains sprinkle particulate matter and coal dust over our communities as they pass. This can cause horrible heath problems like respiratory illness and even cancer. Speak out against transporting coal through our communities!
While health problems are a main concern, transporting coal in uncovered train cars will negatively affect our communities in so many other way — derailments could cause devastating spillage, crops could be tarnished, property values could decline, the list goes on.
We can’t allow our communties to be poisoned so coal companies can make big bucks. If this project goes through, it would make B.C. the largest coal exporter in all of North America.
Thank you for taking action,
