Pamela Anderson is speaking out against the presence of oil tankers in Vancouver Harbour.
The Vancouver Island–raised actor, who played C.J. on Baywatch, appears in a new public-service announcement for the NoTanks.org website.
“When I heard there was going to be crude oil shipped out of Vancouver, I had to say, ”˜No tanks,’” Anderson says in the video. “A 30-second navigational error could be catastrophic.”
CBC News reported earlier this year that, according to Port Metro Vancouver, the amount of crude oil transported by tankers through Burrard Inlet has tripled in five years.
