Join us in Chilliwack on Saturday to discuss concerns over plans for a hazardous waste recycling facility on Fraser River
Community partners, including local First Nations, environmental organizations and recreational fishers, are hosting a public forum to discuss the proposed location of a hazardous waste treatment facility on the flood plain of the Fraser River in Chilliwack. This is in response to the recent rezoning decision made by Mayor Gaetz and Council on December 3rd, 2013. Council voted unanimously to rezone existing industrial land for special use, that being a hazardous waste treatment facility in a flood plain.
DATE & TIME: Saturday, January 18, 2014 2:00-4:00 pm
LOCATION: Evergreen Hall, 9291 Corbould Street, Chilliwack
See our Facebook Event for further details.
OPENING CEREMONY: Grand Chief Clarence Pennier, Sto:Lo Tribal Council, to provide a perspective from local First Nations.
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: International conservationist and founder of BC Rivers Day, Mark Angelo.
The main focus of the public forum is to allow attendees to comment, ask questions, or discuss next steps.
This is more than a Chillwack issue, this proposal impacts our lower Fraser watershed!
