Eco group gets legal aid fund

Oct 03 2012

A Vancouver Island environmental group has set up a legal defence fund to go toward court costs arising from activism.

The Eco-Warriors Legal Trust, set up by the Vancouver Island Community Forest Action Network, is a resource for those opposing tankers, pipelines and the oilsands, said spokeswoman Zoe Blunt.

The trust is being administered by the law firm Underhill, Boies, Parker. The aim is to raise $5,000, Blunt said.

Organizers are expecting a large crowd to gather at the legislature on Oct. 22 to oppose the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, the Kinder Morgan pipeline and supertankers carrying bitumen in northern B.C.
