Sign the Petition on Fortune Minerals


Thank you so much for all your support and efforts to protect our land, waterways, environment and the many jobs and lifestyles people and the wildlife depend upon.

Fortune Minerals know they are in trouble with the overwhelming support for long-term protection of the Sacred Headwaters.  The Outdoor Research Council cited it as the most endangered river in BC. Internationally, the acclaimed film-maker Edward Burtynsky showcased water issues around the world and used the Sacred Headwaters and Stikine as the example of one of the few places left where water hasn't been left toxic by industrial activity in his film Watermark, still in theatres.

However, we still need your support. It's up to us, the people of BC, the people who live in the Skeena, Stikine and Nass watersheds. Let the BC Government know that you will not stand for anything other than protection of the Sacred Headwaters. Please sign or share this petition.
