Linden is a member of the Gitga’at First Nation’s community located in Hartley Bay, BC. He is one of the youth that will be participating in the GBR Youth Paddle next June and has been a great contact and support for the project this far.
“I want to be involved in this because, I love where I live, and I love the animals here. I get to see all the wildlife that not every kid in the world gets to see. All the animals in the sea would be gone if no one cared and let Enbridge go by. All the whales would move. Could you imagine if one tanker blew up? I mean Hartley bay would be gone and I would have to move away from here… For what Erica and Mags are doing, means a lot to me…they are stepping up for a place that they don’t even live in. They are helping the Gitga’at and all the other villages across the North West to stop Enbridge from going through our coast. I think that this is important because if any tanker was to go by all sea animals would either die or move somewhere else… and we are finally getting new whales here. It will be sad if they have to move if one tanker was to blow up. What would they do for Hartley bay when we have to leave such a beautiful place behind?”
Thank you for reading.
