..WITH SCIENCE WE CAN PUT RHETORIC ASIDE…

The proposed significant  increase in dilbit tanker traffic ,as  proposed by Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP), is of great concern to southern BC communities.. ..with little convincing solutions /remedies being offered for handling spills from  a severely damaged dilbit laden tanker …which could severely impact our major industry…the established multibillion dollar marine related ,established businesses.

 

Our now ‘unshackled ‘ Senate has just produced a comprehensive report  http://www.parl.gc.ca/content/sen/committee/421/TRCM/Reports/FINALVERSION-PipelineStudy-2016-12-07_e.pdf

that severely pans the way in which our government has handled this most vital national export plan.

 

Let our now ‘elevated scientists’ , produce a comprehensive risk assessment for the entire BC coast…and locate the ‘least risk’ terminal and marine routes for these dilbit laden tankers…

Yes ,someone might have to deal with , a leaking tanker after hitting a  bridge, a grounded/ruptured  tanker, a  political fanatic…or the most likely problem– respond  to human error consequences .

Let’s put aside all the rhetoric and deal with the  entire dilbit export project, and all of its ramifications …openly . As supported by our PM…when he recently told us.. …. “We need to be basing our decisions and policies on facts, on evidence and on SCIENCE !…”
