BP, the company responsible for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf
of Mexico, plans to start exploratory drilling in offshore Nova Scotia this
spring. This operation was recently approved by Environment Canada, just
before the federal government introduced legislation to download
environmental assessment responsibilities to the industry-packed offshore
petroleum boards.

This spells trouble for Nova Scotia’s coastal communities, fisheries,
tourism, and climate.

The Council of Canadians and friends are hosting town hall events in
Halifax, Lunenburg, and Shelburne to share information about BP’s plans,
and to mobilize in defense of our coasts and communities.
