SFU TankTalks

March 23, 2017

Curious about the potential health and safety risks of the proposed tank farm expansion on Burnaby mountain? On April 3, attend the first ever SFU TankTalks for the opportunity to have your questions answered, to voice your thoughts and opinions, and to raise awareness about the proposed project.

April 3, 2017 at 4pm - 6pm

Halpern 126, 8888 University Dr., Burnaby

During the event, attendees will engage with:

  • Personal stories of community members actively working on the tank farm expansion issue and how they feel both enabled and disempowered to act;
  • A panel discussion with faculty, First Nations, student, and administration representatives, who will share their technical expertise on various aspects of the tank farm expansion;
  • Small group dialogue sessions with the panelists.
Confirmed speakers include Angela Brooks-Wilson (SFU professor), Charlene Aleck (Sacred Trust Initiative and elected Councilor for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation), Grayson Barke (SFU undergraduate student), and Mark Lalonde (SFU Chief Safety Officer).
