Well, MP Pam Goldsmith-Jones did it. She called for three townhalls on Woodfibre LNG. Townhalls—remember those? They were held regularly on significant development projects. Now they're a thing of the past. It seems it's easier for government to divide and conquer a crowd of concerned citizens by setting up a bunch of panel displays all around a room, with no microphones in sight. God forbid citizens getting riled-up by their passionate neighbours at the mic.
We must admit, Pam has guts for setting these up. We can't let this rare opportunity slip by. Get there early and get in your best Woodfibre LNG slams, quips, prods and facts.
This may be the last time we'll see a townhall like this.
Remember the federal government has the final say on Woodfibre LNG. We need to show them we don't want this project. We have to fill these halls up.
