When Texas-based pipeline giant +KinderMorgan proposed building its new #tarsands #pipeline through four of BC’s Provincial Parks I don’t think they understood how much Canadians love their parks. As of October 12, when BC Parks' period to comment on the request proposed by Kinder Morgan to change the boundaries of four parks to make room for their pipeline corridor closed. They can no longer claim ignorance.

More than 25,000 Canadians spoke up to stop Kinder Morgan from building pipelines through Canada's National Parks.

More than two dozen B.C. societies have signed on to an October letter that raises concerns about a pending overhaul of the #BC #SocietyAct, saying the proposed legislation has the potential to intimidate the groups and have a chilling effect on their work. +Globeandmail http://ow.ly/CLAuR
The groups that have signed the October letter are concerned about a clause – Section 99 of the proposed legislation – that would allow any person whom the court considers “appropriate” to apply for a court order on grounds that a society is carrying on activities “detrimental to the public interest.”

The newer cars have thicker shells, head shields on both ends and improved valve protection.

But +MattKrogh, of the group +ForestEthics, which has sued the U.S. Department of Transportation over the shipment of volatile crude oil in older railroad tank cars, told the Associated Press on Saturday that there’s little evidence the newer tank cars will truly prevent explosive spills. He argued that the newer cars are tested at slower speeds than the speed at which most derailments occur, and he noted that it was one of the CPC-1232s that exploded in a fireball during a derailment in Lynchburg, Virginia, in April.

Krogh called switching to the newer cars “a red herring.”

BELLINGHAM – A refinery here says it will no longer accept any volatile North Dakota crude oil unless it arrives in newer-model tank cars. By the first week of October, the BP Cherry Point facility had stopped using pre-2011 standard tank cars, known as DOT-111 cars, for the shipments, the Bellingham Herald reported.

Nearly three dozen organizations [including ForestEthics Advocacy and ForestEthics Solutions] are asking the British Columbia government to abandon a plan to allow any member of the public to challenge in court a non-profit they believe is acting against the public interest.

Because protecting forests is everyone's business
Introduction
ForestEthics is a nonprofit dedicated to protecting Endangered Forests and wild places, wildlife, and human well-being. Our innovative market-based campaign strategy has transformed industries, and helped secure the protection of more than 65 million acres of Endangered Forest.

Founded in 2000, we're based in San Francisco, California, Bellingham, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Recently, the Canadian government has been conducting an unprecedented dismantling of environmental laws — heavily scrutinizing environmental groups, and trying to limit the public’s ability to advocate strongly against those changes. In response, we created two independent nonprofit entities in Canada, ForestEthics Solutions Society and ForestEthics Advocacy Association, in April 2012.
