This week we released a new report that details the risk posed to salmon in the Lower Fraser River from a Trans Mountain pipeline or tanker spill.

The complexities of the river i.e. log booms, armoured shorelines and development mean a spill of diluted bitumen will be all but impossible to recover.

There is no time at which salmon are not using the Lower Fraser as they spawn, rear and migrate throughout the year.

With one third of wild salmon populations in the Fraser River already at risk of extinction is this a risk we want to take?

Check out our website for the full report.
