Deny Cermaq’s pesticide application
Cermaq is applying for a permit to dump 2.3 million litres of pesticides into the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. BC Environment Minister George Heyman has the power to deny this application. We have until November 30 to convince him to do the right thing.

Sign the SumOfUs mining petition
The company responsible for the worst mining disaster in Canadian history wants to build a new open-pit copper mine in the heart of the iconic and pristine rainforests of Clayoquot Sound, and to conduct exploratory drilling at the long-abandoned Fandora gold mine. Both the Ahousaht and the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations have vetoed these projects.
This is not a site for an open-pit copper mine. It’s an environmental disaster waiting to happen. Tell Imperial Metals to drop its Clayoquot Sound mining projects.
