Anti-pipeline groups do mock spill

October 30, 2013

Anti-pipeline campaigners want Gulf Islands residents to look for hundreds of postcard-sized wooden cards released into the Salish Sea during the past week.
Organizers say the cards, emblazoned with an identification number and the words “This could be oil,” have already started to wash up on shorelines.
The effort is part of a campaign, backed by the Raincoast Conservation Foundation and the Georgia Strait Alliance, to create a visual representation of the potential fallout from an oil tanker spill in the region.
