* Howe Sound no place for LNG plant

Wade Davis and Thomas Raphael


Wade Davis is an anthropology professor and the BC Leadership Chair in Cultures and Ecosystems at Risk at the University of British Columbia. Tom Rafael is a retired lawyer. Both live on Bowen Island, at the mouth of Howe Sound.

Woodfibre LNG Ltd. has proposed the construction of a liquefied natural gas facility at the head of Howe Sound, a scenic fjord beloved by British Columbians, especially those of the Lower Mainland.
Opposition to the project to date has largely focused on whether the province should return industry to a waterway that has only recently, and at great expense, been cleaned up.
