Council of Canadians Campaign to Protect Offshore Nova Scotia Events

The Council of Canadians and the Campaign to Protect Offshore Nova Scotia (CPONS) are hosting two upcoming events in Shelburne and Lunenburg. See details below.

BP, the company responsible for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, plans to start exploratory drilling in offshore Nova Scotia this spring.
