The parade of high profile NDP MPs visiting the region continues.
Skeena – Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen was in Duncan and Port Alberni Sunday as part of his “Take Back Our Coast” tour.
Cullen is trying to drum up support for bill C-628.
It would ban oil tankers in certain waters and change the National Energy Board’s hearing process.
Cullen says he’s especially keen to get support in Conservative ridings like Nanaimo-Alberni and West Vancouver Sunshine Coast, so those MPs will back the bill.
When C-628 was in front of Parliament last December the Conservatives said they’re already taking action on most of the issues, so there’s no need for new legislation.
