Abstract: The Save the Georgia Strait Alliance is bringing together environmental, community, Native, and labour groups in an effort to stop the destruction of British Columbia's Georgia Strait and to begin its healing. The Strait, which stretches 220 kilometres between Vancouver Island and the mainland, is a dumping ground for wastes and toxins. Twelve pulp mills, two mines, four oil refineries, six chemical plants, four shipyards, 61 sawmills, and 161 sewer outlets are pouring waste into the Strait at the rate of a million gallons a minute. The fate of the Strait, and the work of the Save the Georgia Strait Alliance, were featured in the Summer 1990 issue of The New Catalyst. The Save the Georgia Strait Alliance is at 2nd floor, 479 4th Street, Courtenay, British Columbia V9N 1G9. Subscriptions to The New Catalyst are $10/year from The New Catalyst, P.O. Box 189, Gabriola Island, British Columbia V0R 1X0.
