Petition to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia

WHEREAS more than half of the U.S.  nuclear vessels conducting tests and exercises in the Strait of Georgia have had accidents, including radioactive coolant leaks from their reactors;

AND WHEREAS an accident resulting in the release of a radioactive cloud would threaten the lives of over 2 million British Columbians who live in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, the Sunshine Coast, and other communities around the Georgia Strait;

AND WHEREAS  more than 2,200 tonnes of copper, lithium, hydrogen cyanide, lead, smoke flares, guidance wire and other toxic material associated with the tests has routinely been dumped into fish habitat;

AND WHEREAS the Strait of Georgia has been declared a nuclear-weapons free zone by all the above communities including the Government of B.C.;

We, the undersigned, being residents of B.C. , Canada, request that the Provincial Legislature continue to oppose the presence of nuclear  weapons systems in the Strait of  Georgia.
