Our Voices Were Heard: Bay du Nord on Hold for Up to 3 Years

“‘I hope that this does send a message to the provincial government and to the federal government,’ says Conor Curtis, Head of Communications at Sierra Club Canada. ‘They need to start rapidly decarbonizing N.L.’s economy. If they’re betting the future of the economy on an expansion in oil and gas and doubling production of oil and gas, that’s just not going to happen. If that’s what they’re betting on, that’s really misleading a lot of people.’

….Sierra Club Canada, along with 118 environmental and citizens’ groups across Canada, have long been against the Bay du Nord project for environmental and economic reasons.”
