I will copy Minister Carr…likely he will provide the missing links ;
The Harper government (JULY 2015)announced ‘proposed BC ‘Think Tank’ ‘..to STUDY the ‘RISKS OF MARINE SHIPPING’ ..where is this RISK STUDY …as reported in the North Shore News http://www.nsnews.com/news/marine-shipping-safety-centre-created-1.1996335
There is another interesting observation by Trans Mountain and some scientific folk(University Washington,etc.) …
“Trans Mountain(Kinder Morgan) submits that ….there are no impacts….that cannot be mitigated ” ! Meanwhile there is an independent ,EPA funded report..that states the exact OPPOSITE..this study (see link below)CONCLUDED “…simply…there is no guarantee that RISK increases ….. can be fully mitigated !
Meanwhile some of the BC public remain interested in some high calibre , independent, science to help US decide if the proposed pipelines should NOT be permitted in our busy ,environmentally sensitive ,multi-billion dollar business areas…There is , some suggest, a much more common sense ,publically acceptable ‘suggestion’ . Build just ONE combined Trans Mountain/Enbridge pipeline to get the bitumen to market…from …. a more ‘less busy terminal location…in an open ocean location.. !…Surely we don’t need two pipelines systems ..to export Alberta oil ? The pending Energy East pipeline handles more oil..and carrys the oil about four times the distance of either of the BC proposed pipelines ??
