Recently, our Science Minister explained that “We need to be basing our decisions and policies…. on SCIENCE” ,supporting statements made earlier by our PM. !
The NEB ‘bought’ the Trans Mountain Expansion Pipeline risk assessment data . In the public interest, the NEB should asked for an independent risk assessment which identified less risky tanker routing .!
BC Premier Designate will make Premier Notley ,PM Trudeau, and BC community leaders smile as they see a common sense , plan evolve where dilbit laden tankers are no longer travelling our environmentally sensitive, multi-billion dollar visitor industry, job creating waters ! Some suggest that a Port Simpson shipping terminal location would create a more acceptable dilbit export plan.
The public recognizes that pipelines and tankers will be necessary for some time yet…or does the new government have some other practicable plan ?
