Fraser Surrey Docks wants to ship up to 8 million metric tonnes of American coal through B.C. every year. The coal would be transported through our homes, schools and farms multiple times a day.

We Must Stop U.S. Coal Exports Through B.C. Communities!

take action

Dear Axcella,

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.

Please sign a fellow Care2 member’s petition to keep coal trains out of our communities!
