Our Court of Appeal ‘ listened’ ,thank you ! Government chose not hear us .
A BC Ferry passenger vessel sunk(2006) . Recently , a DOUBLE HULLED oil (condensate) laden tanker sank in the South China Sea .
Yes, ships sink !
Uncounted numbers of smaller marine cargo vessels continually serve our remote/ coastal communities with vital goods.! Google “Bella Bella oil spill”, etc..
Airplanes fall from the sky … we still fly….. Do you plan to stop driving ?
Our Government’ planned Oil Protection Plan (OPP) likely could be helpful with smaller spills …but for the BIG ONE the best plan is to minimize probability of that fully laden “tanker” sinking !
How ? Typically ,for major infrastructure ,such as a new airport/terminal or Trans Mountain Expansion(TMX)pipeline, independent expert risk assessments are produced to assist in selecting the least risky option , to better protect the interests of investors and the public. Did our Government care ?
Now this Government ‘wanna’ sell you their 65 year old pipeline …and their ill-conceived diluted bitumen export scheme !
