Director Adriana Poveda has resigned from the Board of CCEC, with regrets.  She has accepted a new position with the Provincial government and will be moving to Victoria.  Adriana has been on the Board for two and a half years and most recently been a board co-chair. She has served on several committees while on the Board.  She has been an insightful contributor and diligent in fulfilling her responsibilities. We will miss her, but we wish her well.

StorefrontOn May 27th we re-opened across the street, in our real 'home base'.  The move proceeded well and all systems were up and running on Tuesday. We apologize for any inconvenience to you as some systems were down over Sunday and Monday. 

We invite all members to come in and check out our renovated premises.  We are eager to see you!

pipe-up

CCEC Credit Union is an accepted intervenor in the National Energy Board (NEB) review of the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion. This project of Kinder Morgan proposes to pump Alberta tar sands bitumen to Burnaby and then ship it on huge tankers through Burrard Inlet and Georgia Strait. CCEC is concerned at a global level and at a regional level about the ecological risks.  CCEC is also concerned with the economic subsidies imputed from government and those living along the transportation corridor. Implicitly, costs and risks are being imposed on neighbours and citizens.      

The review process is biased in favour of the proponent, so the challenge will be both present evidence to the NEB and the public. The NEB discounts any climate change concerns as not relevant. CCEC will be collaborating with several other community organizations over the coming months. We will also be hosting at least one members' meeting to broaden the public's knowledge, and hold the public process to account.
