Call for a moratorium on all mining activities in Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations territories in Clayoquot Sound.


The Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations are adamantly opposed to Imperial Metals' plans to conduct mining activities in the Tranquil Valley Tribal Park near Tofino. The BC Minister of Energy and Mines has approved a permit for Imperial Metals to conduct exploratory drilling at the long-abandoned Fandora gold mine.

On behalf of Tla-o-quiaht First Nations, Clayoquot Action has been asked to post this petition calling for a moratorium on all mining activities in their traditional territories. Please share this petition widely and support the Tla-o-qui-aht vision for vibrant watersheds and healthy communities. Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations territories are in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Premier of British Columbia
    Christy Clark
  • Minister of Energy and Mines
    Bill Bennett
  • MLA Alberni-Qualicum
    Scott Fraser
