Our electorate chose a new government that promises to ‘listen and use science’…
and I hope will remove large bitumen laden tankers ,from travelling through some of our busiest ,environmentally sensitive ,multi-billion dollar business generating waters..?
In a recent correspondence with The Honourable Jim Carr,Minister of Transport,(May 17,’16,), I’m told…”the Government… has developed a transition strategy…that ensure that decisions about … projects under review…(be) based on science and facts”.
In the absence of knowing now .. let’s make a common sense decision to minimize the probability of a tanker bitumen spill….by locating the bitumen tanker loading terminal and shipping routes where a bitumen spill is least probable— by
choosing a relatively open-ocean location…..surely NOT Douglas Channel,, Burrard Inlet…or the international Salish Sea !
We look forward to this common sense approach…and then we get on with building, one common sense pipeline from Alberta to BC coast ..
