Summary: 
 
Life on BC’s north coast revolves around the marine environment. Culture, economy, stewardship - the ocean plays a pivotal role in the region’s web of community, driving a robust marine-based economy. The federal government can protect this marine environment through two major decisions: 
 
  1. Ban oil tanker traffic on BC's North Coast 
  2. Implement a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) on BC's North Coast
 
This infographic outlines the need for these two policy decisions as essential pieces of protection for BC's rich natural resoures.
 
WCEL thanks Ecotrust Canada for the production of the map and the design of this infographic.
