NDP house leader, Nathan Cullen made a stop in Vancouver yesterday to talk about his Take Back Our Coast campaign.
After touring parts of BC, the Skeena-Buckley Valley NDP MP’s last stop was UBC Robson Square to discuss the opposition of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project and how people can get involved with the cause.
Cullen also had advice for students of trades programs in BCIT who are getting their education and training with the hopes of working in particular fields, some of which connected to oil and gas.
“I would hope that it’s not just a job, but that people bring their morals and values to work – that they don’t want to be implicated with something that desperately hurts people.”
Cullen believes that everyone is entitled to stand up for what they believe in.
“Everyone has their own code. Let’s get together and talk about the ethics in our industries. I think that would be a good way to get into an affinity group. Rather than coming in with big signs and saying, how could you possibly think of working for the oil people?”
Cullen says the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline poses a significant risk to our environment and threatens thousands of good jobs. He says over 60% of British Columbians are against the pipeline, and he hopes to help raise awareness.
Cullen made stops in Victoria, Duncan, Courtney, Campbell river and Powell River, before his final destination in Vancouver.
