Offshore Oil and Gas (May 17 – 18, 2000)
Downturns in the Province's fishing and forestry industries have left BC coastal communities searching for economic alternatives that will ensure their survival. One such alternative is the development of offshore oil and gas reserves. While some are urging government to lift the moratorium on exploration drilling, others maintain that the risks to an already threatened fishery and marine ecosystem remain too great and the socio-economic benefits too uncertain. This forum has been designed for participation by key stakeholders including communities, industry, research institutions, industry, labour, environmental and other non-government organizations, along with all levels of government.
