(en) Canada, ucl-saguenay, Collectif Emma Goldman - [Strike for the climate] More than 3000 people in Chicoutimi against the destructive LNG project Quebec (Saguenay Energy) (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 6 Oct 2019 08:51:40 +0300

On September 27, we were more than 3,000 students, retirees, children and workers walking the streets of downtown Chicoutimi to denounce the government's environmental inaction and the destructive project of LNG Quebec (Energy Saguenay). The latter consists of the construction of a natural gas liquefaction complex at Grande-Anse and a 750 km pipeline. Meanwhile in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, 3000 people took part in the demonstration in Alma and hundreds of individuals walked in Saint-Félicien as well as in the Saint-Coeur-de-Marie district (Alma) . In Quebec City, 25,000 people took part in the event and in Montreal, a historic event in Canada brought together nearly half a million people. Feeling the pressure, the first sinister in Quebec, François Legault, thought it best to reach out to the young, while his vice-sergeant made calls for calm and agitated men of straw. The environmental disaster speaks of a third "green" bridge-tunnel link for Quebec City and the government's bias against the proposed gas pipeline and natural gas liquefaction plant. In this case, the government business of François Legault takes over the half-truths and the volunteer omissions of the promoter. He claims that hypothetically (indeed nothing guarantees that coal plants will close in China as suggested by Energy Saguenay) the pipeline project will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) elsewhere in the world ... But as the developers , François Legault fails to say that this project will produce GHGs here and elsewhere in Canada. It is also necessary to take into account the mortal danger that the realization of this project poses to the threatened population of belugas.

"How dare you?" - Greta Thunberg
Of course, some opportunistic politicians were present at the various events. In Chicoutimi, Bloc Québécois candidate Mario Simard and Chicoutimi's municipal councilor, Simon-Olivier Côté, skated and used the politician's language of choice when asked about the LNG project. " I do not see any opposition between going for a walk and being for or against big projects. I am not in favor or against any project. What I do have is to ensure that environmental standards and assessment are respected . "( Link ) said the District 8 Councilor and the king of downtown parking lots in Chicoutimi.
In 1970, this kind of comment might have been preferable to the comments of the former Liberal Party of Canada candidate, now with the Conservatives, and Saguenay municipal councilor Marc Pettersen. But we are no longer there. There is a climate emergency.

" If we do not change policy by 2020, we may[...]disastrous consequences for humans and the natural systems that support us. Said Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations. Our era requires, for the sake of the greatest number, that our society abandons fossil fuels and begins a necessary economic downturn. That our economy is based on the satisfaction of individual and collective real needs, oriented towards the maintenance in the long term and according to existing resources.
