The BC public wants to see and hear how the ‘clean-up gang’ will perform beyond our duck pond—Burrard Inlet ? You know, during a tide change,with gale blowing , while a bitumen laden tanker is hung up on a reef OR stuck into the side of container ship or ,in busy waters such as Haro Strait or Boundary Pass ?.
We’ve been told,that PIPELINERS do not deal with shipping issues ! ‘Other’s will—WHAT the …??
Thank goodness for that the recent ULTIMATE public hearing…where the PUBLIC,finally, was heard , chose a bunch —that promised to LISTEN !
They chose a new bunch ,who now must LISTEN ‘hard’ and DECIDE who,when, where,and how ,bitumen will be transported and…. how spills will be dealt …. while still encouraging export of our resources,so vital for our economy…!
Build a ‘smarter’, SINGLE, pipeline and restrict tanker traffic to ‘least busy’ routes . Then,we’ll have made our best,most practicable choice..and
MINIMIZED THE PROBABILITY of a ‘bitumen spill’ event in our environmentally sensitive ocean waters …and maintained our multibillion dollar revenue generating tourist businesses
