Green Party Leaders visit Alton Gas Truckhouse for Water Ceremony

“Protection of our precious waterways, our fish stocks, and our equally precious relationship with Nova Scotia’s Indigenous peoples are more important than a short-sighted attempt to bolster our fossil fuel infrastructure,” states Thomas Trappenberg, leader of the Nova Scotia Green Party. “We must face the fact that we need to be moving toward a more sustainable future. The water protectors here understand that, so why doesn’t our government?”

The ceremony is a sacred event, but cameras are welcome before and after it. A shared moose stew luncheon will follow.
